“Smart, sassy, and absolutely genius.”*—Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow
These days, anxiety is simply part of the human experience. That’s unfortunate, but on the plus side, the second book in the Big Activity Book series – The Big Activity Book for Anxious People – is now available for preorder! (The first book in the series, if my 10,000 mentions over the years slipped past you, is The Big Fat Activity Book for Pregnant People, now in its SIXTH PRINTING – what?!! – and the third is in the process of being written right this very moment.)
Part journal, part coloring book, part compilation of weird coping mechanisms, and part compendium of soothing facts, The Big Activity Book for Anxious People is an outlet for anyone who wants to take a break from reality, laugh through their fears, and realize with every page that they’re not alone. It’s also there to help you figure out what to do when it’s 3AM and you’re wide awake worrying about whether you cc’ed the right “Bob” on that email. (You did. Probably.)
- Fun Facts about Aging!
- Public Speaking: A Diagram
- Your Hotel Room Carpet: A Petri Dish of Horrors
- Obscure Diseases You Probably Don’t Have
- Zen Mantras For The Anxiously Inclined
- Soothing Facts about Hand Sanitizer
On a bad day, try coloring in the sweet little grandma. On a really bad day, find step-by-step instructions on how to build an underground bunker. See, Erin and I want everyone who buys this book to remember that they’re in good company: anxious people are some of the funniest and most interesting and creative humans on the planet. We know, because we are two of them.
And! This seems like important information for you to have: The book officially comes out right before Mother’s Day. (And it’s going to be released in the U.K., Spain, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, and the Ukraine. So if you live in any of those places, keep an eye out.)
*This is a real quote that a real New York Times bestselling author really said about the book. I die. A few more lovely things that have been said in various outlets are below, so you can decide whether preordering is the right strategy for you (totally unbiased opinion: I think it should be).
