Summary:

Judging by the statistics, you could be forgiven for thinking we are a nation of depressives; an astounding two-thirds of British adults say they suffer from depression, according to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Well-informed, widely-researched, and punctuated with humour, this book asks some powerful questions about the nature of depression, and looks at how to cope in the face of a condition that robs you of the very skills and energies you need to recover. It includes chapters on how it feels to be depressed, depression through history, the spectre of suicide, the disease model of depression and antidepressant drugs, and healing and recovery,

Depression is viewed from a holistic viewpoint as a medical, cognitive, lifestyle and spiritual phenomenon.

    Great book and very well researched. Shows a variety of techniques to combat depression. Bit confusing as the narrator is male and the author is female. Hence many of the "my husband" quotes are confusing.
