My Latest Book
How I Learned To Survive Depression
"Superbly readable, supremely useful. Unflinching, clear-eyed, honest, raw and revealing, it may be the most important achievement of Alastair Campbell’s vivid and varied life. This book could save lives." – STEPHEN FRY
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. His partner of forty years, Fiona Millar, writes a moving afterword on how she too has learned to live with his depression.
Depression is the predominant mental health problem worldwide - it is estimated that 1 in 6 people in the past week experienced a common mental health problem and major depression is thought to be the second leading cause of disability worldwide. LIVING BETTER is a call to arms and an extraordinary memoir in one compelling and inspiring narrative. This is a book that really could save lives.
"One can only hope that LIVING BETTER provokes a far wider and more honest understanding of the condition" – JON SNOW

The dividing line in politics now isn't left or right or even right and wrong but between people living in evidence-based reality and those living in the kingdom of utter bullshit.
All of you that have read our website (URL in our bio), and understand what Shanker Singham and Rishi Sunak are doing to evade and destroy International Law on everything from Tax to Human Rights
Here is your proof:
Will there be a further Brexit breach of the law?
Is Chancellor Rishi Sunak preparing a further breach of international law on the Brexit deal?
A reminder that the people who have presided over the worst economic fallout from Covid in Europe are the same ones in charge of a Brexit they say is going to be great despite bearing no relation whatever to what they said they would deliver.
