The 'Really Strange' Boxset

Varied and invaluable, this complete collection of the Really Strange series explores topics that make us fundamentally human - anxiety, pain, trauma, and touch. This special boxset includes an incredibly useful and beautifully illustrated wallchart.

Pain is Really Strange
Answering questions such as 'how can I change my pain experience?', 'what is pain?', and 'how do nerves work?'.

Trauma is Really Strange
With wonderful artwork, cat and mouse metaphors, essential scientific facts, and a healthy dose of wit, the narrator reveals how trauma resolution involves changing the body's physiology.

Anxiety is Really Strange
What is the difference between fear and excitement and how can you tell them apart? How do the mind and body make emotions? When can anxiety be good?

Touch is Really Strange
Why can't we tickle ourselves? How can slow touch convey more powerful emotions than fast touch? How does touch shape our perception of the world? The latest addition to the Really Strange series, this science-based graphic comic addresses these questions and more.
