If only I understood the reason for my anxiety – if I could understand it, explain it – then I could solve it.
But this was just a distraction. In fact, it made things worse.

Specifically, my correspondent wanted to know how to write a great non-fiction book.
Before you say it… god knows why they came to me.
I certainly don’t claim to be a world expert in writing non-fiction. At best, I’m probably the world’s foremost humorously custard-based mental health writer.
Even so, my comedy book about anxiety has been surprisingly successful, so perhaps something in my experience might be useful to somebody.
As I started replying to the email, I realised this might benefit from being more widely shared. So here we are.
A confused human, possibly wondering what happened to their leg.
The short answer is “no”.
The long answer is also no. But it has more detail:
Currently the site has zero excerpts from the book, and I intend to keep it that way.
I want to make the book and the site complementary to one another by producing all-new content for the site.
This also allows me to go beyond the scope of the book. Sometime after release I plan to start posting ideas that go further than the discovery of the Meaning of Life at the end of the book*.
* Sorry for spoilers, but it IS in the title…
Eventually, this site should provide both a gentle introduction to the initial steps of tackling anxiety, and also explore more advanced topics.
In the long term, I expect to solve the problems of World Peace and create a happy utopia for all humans.*
* (though this might take a while, and probably won’t realistically happen.)
I hope that clears everything up, and thanks for your questions, nameless readers!
