A personal account of a young comedian's experiences with mental health. Jack Rooke is on a mission to help us better understand the reasons why so many young men are acting in such desperate ways and to encourage more of us to understand the early signs of depression in our friends and family. Part memoir, part polemic, the book is a completely fresh and timely take on a huge issue, and one that is very close to Jack's heart - in 2015, while Jack was working an ambassador for a male mental health charity; he lost his best friend, Olly, to suicide. This is a journey through Jack's life and experiences with Olly, coupled with frank and powerful advice on how to talk to your friends about their state of mind.
