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.

laughs, cries and sobs

This is such a beautiful narration. The writing style is captivating and meticulously descriptive which meshes so well with dodie's tone. Enamoured with this. A truly truly inspiring book.

Ideal for Teens

I liked the book and the content. I like the way how Dodie mixed her story telling with practical hints and advice. However, as an older person it feels like something that I should have listened to and likely to have benefited from as an adolescent or teenager.

Amazing

5/5 this book is amazing!! I’ve only just started to watch her videos and listen to her music and this is truly a reflection of her inspiring character and spirit. She didn’t pretend to have all the answers while seemingly answering each question that pops into my head, her thought provoking reading of it all adds to the charm. overall I would recommend to anyone and it is a worthwhile purchase if you enjoy her content already

Amazing!!!

I finished this book in one go, I loved the different aspects of this story. there's different people (Dodie's friends) talking about different things and Dodie herself singing songs about the times in her life she is talking about. I couldn't have listened to a better autobiography if I tried!!

Absolutely Beautiful

An amazing story. Dodie has outdone herself with this beautiful book. I'll listen to it over and over, taking in every message and absorbing the hope she gives. Dodie is living proof that it gets worse, but then it will get so much better, and this story is a perfect reflection of that.
