...this book is a comprehensive, sympathetic, and thought-provoking guide for those who want to explore their depression in more depth and who are motivated to make long-term changes in their ways of thinking and their lifestyle. It can also be recommended to carers of people with depression and to junior doctors in psychiatry. --The British Journal of Psychiatry, April 2011
Practical, concise, [this book] does not overwhelm the reader and can be re-read and used as a 'what can I do now?' guide for those affected themselves or carers. The book brings understanding and encourages independent solutions. It is remarkable in its shortness and practicality. Pragmatic yet empathetic. --The British Medical Association
