This book is his no nonsense, incense-free, hilarious guide to relaxing the head, reducing anxiety and living a calmer life. No ambulance required!

Above all, his humor and encouragement never let us lose sight of hope. Speaking as his present self to his former self in the depths of depression, Matt is adamant that the oldest cliché is the truest—there is light at the end of the tunnel.
