Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Secrets for the Mad by dodie, read by dodie, Joshua Edwards, Hazel Hayes, Jack Howard, Daniel J. Layton, Sammy Paul, Benjamin Redwood and Rebecca Fortuin.
Find hope in dark times
When I feel like I'm going mad, I write.
A lot of my worst fears have come true - fears that felt so big I could barely hold them in my head. I was convinced that when they happened, the world would end.
But the world didn't end. In fact, it pushed on and demanded to keep spinning through all sorts of mayhem, and I got through it. And because I persisted, I learned lessons about how to be a stronger, kinder, better human - lessons you can learn only by going through these sorts of things.
This is for the people with minds that just don't stop; for those who feel everything a thousand times more than others around them.
Here are some words I wrote.
Features versions of dodie's songs recorded exclusively for the audiobook and includes a live version of 'She' from her 2017 UK tour.

stunning and unique

What a clever use of the medium! combining stories and songs and with input from friends, this is a gorgeous bit of art.

I was not familiar with dodie before I bought this - and to be honest, some of the book was a but young for me (I need a middle-aged dodie giving me advice on feeding my family when one kid is suddenly vegan and the other only eats white food) - but I loved it anyways.

I have kids just coming into adolescence in a world completely changed by social media and the interwebs. and I like to think I am pretty "with it", but also I'm 39 and my days of gigs and late nights and dating are (thankfully) behind me. This collection of stories and advice and songs was like a bridge between their world and mine. a reminder that while many things have changed, a lot of things are the same.

Plus the songs were lovely.

life changing, mood improvement, comfort for life

Dodie is honestly my hero. This book has dragged me out of depressive episodes and many days and nights where I thought the world was ending. I don't know how to thank her enough.

Loved it.

Dodie is a wonderful story teller. In this book she is very open and honest about many different parts of her life such as mental health, love, family/friendships/relationships and growing up. I love the way she writes and chooses her words so beautifully. Her voice is so soothing as well which made it such a pleasant listen. I’ve always loved listening to her talk in her YouTube videos and I really enjoyed listening to this book.
