Today on the show we have the warm, generous and stupidly clever Georgie Dent. Georgie is a former lawyer, a journalist, an old editor of ours and the author of the new and best-selling memoir, Breaking Badly.

At 24, things were going pretty good for Georgie. She’d landed a job at a prestigious Sydney law firm, was living with her boyfriend and had so much head of her. But, in her own words, she broke. By 25, Georgie was unemployed, back living with her parents and suffering such crippling anxiety that she ended up in a psychiatric hospital.

To quote the book’s own blurb, Breaking Badly is the story of a nervous breakdown in slow motion.

This is Georgie's story.
