About the Author

Charlie Wardle set up the Climb Your Mountain (CYM) charity in 2008 with the aim of helping anyone who was going through difficult times and felt they had their own personal mountain to climb. Until 2008, Charlie had built a successful career in finance, qualified as a chartered accountant, obtained an MBA from a top Business School and, in his last role before setting up the charity, become the Finance Director of a large global publishing company. Yet during that successful career he also had a very difficult period, with a lot of stress and for a while this resulted in what he later understood to be stress-related depression. At the time he didn t realise it was depression and had very little knowledge and understanding, he just realised he wasn t himself. Charlie managed to get through this very difficult period and wrote a book about the experience before finally deciding to set up the charity Climb Your Mountain. During the last few years Charlie has carried out extensive research into depression and stress including symptoms, causes, prevention, management and treatment. He has delivered many courses, workshops and talks on the subject and he has spoken with and met hundreds of people who have had to face or are facing their own challenges in life. This book is a combination of those experiences, his own experiences and the research covered[K1] during the last few years with the aim of providing people with the knowledge, understanding and tools to help

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and helpful 10 Jun. 2014
By lucy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this for the first time and loved it. It is great for tips and guidance related to understanding, preventing and dealing with stress and depression some which I knew and others that I didn't but all really simple. It can be a little repetitive but some parts are reaffirmed all of the way through in a good way as it keeps a good theme and helps you remember important bits. I thought it may have been a bit more scientific than it was but it made sense for it not to be as this way it was simple and easy to understand and relate to. Really good read, would recommend to anyone needing a bit of a lift or who is just interested in the topic.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really a big fan 4 Jun. 2014
By Beck
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I didn't really like hearing the phrase 's*** happens' in a book about depression to be honest. There was no practical advice other than cheer up and pull yourself together. A good talking to from your Nana would be equally effective to be honest. Ended up more down than when I started the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful but not a lot that is new 8 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very clear, easy to follow book which had a few new insights into coping with depression, ie. the effect of sugar on the human system. Also has some very simple advice which anyone can follow, which I would expect would help anyone suffering with the milder sort.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe this book is FREE! excellent! 30 July 2014
By Jessie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Such a jam packed book full of so many tips and thought provoking anecdotes. Makes you stop and realise the things you already have in place but perhaps don't value such as mentors for example.

I particular liked the 'Curse of the Strong' and believe a lot of people can relate to that.

Is a really great feeling that there are people out there prepared to give up their time to write such 'help' books for the benefit of others. Thank you to the author- you have made a difference to my life and hopefully many others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful 3 July 2014
By soggy

I read the book not knowing what to expect, but found myself agreeing to most of it. I have helped someone with depression over past few years and now it is taking its toll on me. This book helped me understand my stress and how to deal with it in a positive way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 3 Jun. 2014
By fsmith
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The advice was sensible and down to earth. I loved the toolbox and will definitely use some, if not all, of the suggestions. I have suffered from anxiety and depression for many years and this is one of the best books on the subject that I have come across.

2.0 out of 5 stars Positive. 24 Jan. 2015
By Linda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is positive. It gives good, sound practical advice to those who may have more than just the 'doldrums'. However, if you are looking for a fix on specific agitators in your perspectives on life, you won't find a solution. Just when I thought the author lit on the issues facing stress, the reasoning fizzled into a void. This book is a good start towards recognising depressive stress, not focussing on angry stress, niggles and self-protection, which is stress. It's not a fix-it book. It highlights with a lot of presumption how one can be if suffering depressive stress. This book is helpful in pinpointing issues surrounding stress, but does not do specifics. All in all, written a lot better than most 'help' books, yet could do with some slight editing.
