How Not to Kill Yourself: A Survival Guide for Imaginative Pessimists

An alternative, half-cynical and somewhat black-humoured 'self-help' guide to dealing with suicidal thoughts and depression among the deeply imaginative, society's most promising and yet most undervalued asset.

This short guide caters to 'imaginative pessimists' - creative cynics, 'tortured artists' - those with rich imaginations and drive to create, who absorb themselves in fiction and escapism, yet who deeply struggle with finding enjoyment and meaning in the mundanity of reality. It is advice for the fantasists who would rather live in their head than in the real world, and so often suffer from depression and disillusion, to point of being led at times to suicidal thoughts.

It is about finding these people a reason to live.
