'If I could prescribe Getting Better to the entire nation, I would... It's a book that inspires hope, courage and belief in humanity. Basically, it reminds you how to live. I loved every single word' Dr Rachel Clarke

'Just full to the brim with wisdom, truth and beautiful silliness' Cariad Lloyd

In our lives, terrible things may happen. Michael Rosen has grieved the loss of a child, lived with debilitating chronic illness, and faced death itself when seriously unwell in hospital. In spite of this he has survived, and has even learned to find joy in life in the aftermath of tragedy.

In Getting Better, he shares his story and the lessons he has learned along the way. Exploring the roles that trauma and grief have played in his own life, Michael investigates the road to recovery, asking how we can find it within ourselves to live well again after - or even during - the darkest times of our lives. Moving and insightful, Getting Better is an essential companion for anyone who has loved and lost, or struggled and survived.
