About this Book

Author: Alastair Campbell

Date Published: 14-May-2020

Living Better is Alastair Campbell's honest, moving and life affirming account of his lifelong struggle with depression. It is an autobiographical, psychological and psychiatric study, which explores his own childhood, family and other relationships, and examines the impact of his professional and political life on himself and those around him. But it also lays bare his relentless quest to understand depression not just through his own life but through different treatments. Every bit as direct and driven, clever and candid as he is, this is a book filled with pain, but also hope -- he examines how his successes have been in part because of rather than despite his mental health problems -- and love.

Superbly readable, supremely useful. Unflinching, clear-eyed, honest, raw and revealing, this book may be the most important achievement of Alastair Campbell's vivid and varied life. For anyone who has lived with depression or lived with someone who lives with depression LIVING BETTER will be indispensable and - potentially - even a life-saver * STEPHEN FRY *
I thought I knew everything there was to know about Alastair but LIVING BETTER reveals so much more. It is typical of him to take his own struggles and lay them out so candidly to help those who have depression deal with it and help those who don't - like me - understand it better. Alastair is living proof that it is possible to have depression and yet achieve so much * TONY BLAIR *
Very touching, I'm sure it'll help many people. It made me feel less alone * MARIAN KEYES *
A book about hope and about love and how they can conquer all * DELIA SMITH *
As a fellow sufferer, I found LIVING BETTER fascinating, compelling and totally relatable. There were times it moved me to tears, other times it had me smiling and laughing, but above all it made me reflect that I am not alone, and that there are always new things we can do to help others, and to help ourselves. If everyone read and acted on this book, the world would be a better place * DENISE WELCH, of Coronation Street and Loose Women *
LIVING BETTER is a profound and moving book and everyone should read it * JOHANN HARI, author of Lost Connections *
It is fascinating to see how someone seen as strong and tough can talk so openly about his vulnerabilities. I've no doubt that many sportsmen and women will both identify with and learn from LIVING BETTER * MARO ITOJE, Saracens and England rugby player *
Deeply personal and revealing * OBSERVER *
Deeply honest . . . [Campbell] articulately reflects on these issues in sharp detail, creating an all-encompassing and intricate look into mental health. This incredibly nuanced read will resonate with anyone * The i *
A startlingly frank account of the rollercoaster moods which Campbell traces back to his childhood * Daily Mail *
