5.0 out of 5 stars Changed by View of Depression Completely, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Depths (Hardcover)
It's worth going over to Amazon.com to check the reviews there, so that you don't have to take my word for it; however I think that this is the most enlightening book on depression that I have read (and I've read many). It starts with looking at the likely evolutionary role for depression, talking about how one's mood is the great integrator, helping the body decide how to respond to different environments. It talks about how there are many levers that we can use to improve or alter one's mood, and it talks about the author's own experience with depression. Above all I feel that the book offers hope to sufferers of depression, that there are many paths out, and even that depression may not be entirely useless. For me this is far and away the best book on depression. It's neither for nor against drug treatments, but sees a holistic approach as the way out, which from personal experience I agree with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helping with Depression?, 19 Sept. 2014
Draws on recent developments, and a harrowing personal experience, to explain depression in evolutionary terms that show how it arises from adaptation survival strategies. Also makes a powerful case for de-stigmatizing this increasingly common condition, as well as pointing the way toward new paths for treatment. Readable, relevant and sobering.

This review is from: The Depths (Hardcover)
A very interesting approach. Maybe additional data in the future could make the derived inferences more solid.
