The Relentless Pursuit of Peace: A Roadmap to Mental Health by Dr Max Coates

Mental Health is very much on the agenda. This book demystifies a lot of the issues that can affect the majority. It shows how small changes can bring significantly better outcomes. A good life experience is seldom accidental, and yet too many people remain trapped with anxiety and depression. Practical milestones are shared to help us journey  onwards towards good mental health.

Whilst the book is readily accessible, its recommendations are backed by a careful exploration of contemporary research. Many self-help books, seminars and initiatives in the workplace are often misleading and just plain wrong. The early part of the book challenges outdated thinking. It is very much a handbook for the head.

‘An informative, well researched and thought provoking book.’ DR STEPHEN HUGHES MD FRCP. Consultant Physician

‘A thoughtful, helpful and often reassuring guide to the complexities of mental health today' PROFESSOR BETHANY KELLY, Director of Programmes - Faculty of Education - University of Buckingham

‘A fascinating read, balanced effectively between academic research [and] an understanding of behavioural manifestations’ GARY NEILD, CEO - Blue Sky Financial Planning
