This review is from: Climbing Out of Depression : A Practical Guide for Sufferers (Paperback)
I've suffered from bi-polar illness for over 20 years. This is the first book I've come across that is helpful, witty, in an easy to read format, doesn't talk down to you, doesn't tell you to 'snap out of it'.
The layout is ideal for a sufferer- no huge chunks of text to put you off when concentration is difficult. And yet what is written is helpful, indepth in places- not just cliches and platitudes. The text is broken up with quotations and helpful snippets that make browsing and skimming through just as rewarding as sitting down to read it front-to-back.
The cartoons of the lemming gradually climbing up the cliff were a nice, original touch. The author approaches the subject as one to be taken seriously, but at the same time inserts a little humour- usually at the expense of those who annoy us when we're depressed. Ha!
Brilliant.
Buy it if you're a sufferer. Treat youself. You'll love it.
Buy it for a friend who is a sufferer. They'll love you for it.
