Not only is this a good read in its own right but it is a must for anyone who has suffered (or has a friend or relative who has) from depression.

I can usually read a book in 2 or 3 days, if it grabs me from the start. Not sure why, but 2 weeks on and I am only half way through.

This is an absolutely fantastic book, I have not finished reading yet but on what I have read would definitely recommend it.

A must for anyone who suffers with depression, and an insight for anyone who is close to someone who has depression.

An honest and heartfelt account of living with depression and showing there is light at the end of a dark tunnel.

Well written account of struggling with depression, not useful if you are in the midst of depression yourself.

I have little in common with the Author, she is a journalist and magazine editor who enjoys gardening, whilst I am a large bald headed bloke who enjoys going to the gym. We both have one thing in common however, severe depression. I have had this condition for over three years and you name it I've done it, in an attempt to "get better" or make the pain go away. This book is this first one I have picked up that, for me, tells it as it is. If you have recently been diagnosed with depression, or anxiety, or perhaps know someone who has, then this book is a good starting place as it will go a long way to explain what you are feeling. Obviously, everyone's experiences are different, for example, the author has access to private medical insurance, where as many of us have to cope with the well intentioned reality of the NHS mental health treatment system, but, thoughts and feelings do not change and her views on therapy,therapists and drugs ring so true, in my experience. I recommend this book, it will help.

Depression was a word that was never spoken about in our family. After my brother committed suicide 18 months ago, the question I was asked most was "Did you know he was depressed?" Ironically, had I read this book before he took his life I would have seen the signs. I urge anyone who is feeling low, depressed, however mild or severe, or if you know someone who is depressed, to read this book. Sally Brampton writes from her own personal experience with honesty, sincerity and an exposed vulnerability. Depression is an illness not a moral flaw or character failing. Wanting to die is a symptom of this illness, like pain is a symptom of a broken leg. There is a huge stigma surrounding depression and the person suffering is not only fighting the illness, but also the attitudes surrounding it! It is important to know you are not alone.....life is about connection. These are all quotes from Sally's book. This book is my new bible, a permanent fixture on my shelf and in my kindle. I have read it 3 times.
