Occasional comedian and full-time worrier Neil Hughes isn't the kind of person you'd expect to write a helpful book.

He's an idiot.

Or, at least, so his Inner Critic is constantly telling him. No wonder he's suffering from anxiety!

But somehow, during his nervous bumbling through life, he learned to live with anxiety and escape the unhelpful mental habits he'd picked up along the way.

Oh... and he stumbled on the Meaning of Life, too.

Now he's sharing hilarious real-life stories, inventive fantasy fiction and badly-drawn graphs to help you to be less anxious and more happy.

In this compelling, surprising and delightful guide to life for humans, Neil explores the roots of anxiety and how to (gently) uproot them, all while battling the irritating interruptions from his doubtful Inner Critic.
