Review “Extraordinary…Stark address[es] this vexed question of what effect our over-stimulated, almost constantly wired brains are having on our sense of well-being.” (The Sydney Morning Herald)“By looking back on her childhood, interviewing experts and amassing anecdotal data, Stark expertly links her lifelong struggle with anxiety with a collective social malaise that is exacerbated by our constant connectivity, underfunded mental healthcare systems and the pervasive ‘happiness myth’…The book’s resounding takeaway that there are multiple ‘happy-in-betweens’ instead of one ‘happy-ever-after’ is an uplifting and liberating one.” (Books+Publishing)‘This is a book we need. Highly, highly recommended. Puts a deft finger on many things that I guarantee have been quietly troubling you for a while. A book for our times.’ (Susan Carland, author of Fighting Hislam: Women, Faith and Sexism)“With the same keen eye evident in her previous book, Happy Never After is full of far-reaching and astoundingly thorough research…this is a must-read for anyone who has either struggled with mental health themselves or knows someone who has – and according to Stark, that’s most of us.” (Readings)“Her personal experience with anxiety gives readers an insight into why we should hit the brakes on our quest for happiness.” (Mercury)“A moving, insightful analysis of our collective pain and how we can heal.” (Johann Hari, author of Lost Connections)“Funny, wise, poignant and compelling, Happy Never After is a brilliant intersection between searing personal experience and the wisdom of the elders: nothing brings us closer to despair than the relentless pursuit of our own happiness.” (Hugh MacKay, author of The Good Life)“Faced with the crippling paralysis that comes with anxiety and depression, Jill Stark doesn’t completely crumple. Instead, she does what a good journalist does: looks it directly in the face in order to explain, investigate, and reveal. Anyone who reads this book who lives with anxiety will be a beneficiary of its courage and clarity.” (Benjamin Law, author of Gaysia and The Family Law) Read more About the Author Jill Stark is an award-winning journalist and author with a career spanning two decades in both the UK and Australian media.
