This review is from: How Sadness Survived: The Evolutionary Basis of Depression (Kindle Edition)
It is not only an accessible and interesting read, it is almost a therapeutic literature. None of this 'fix-your-life-believe-in-yourself' nonsense, but a book that allows understanding of what is happening to you or to your closest. It convincingly demonstrates how depressive behaviours are common not only amongst humans, but the rest of mammals as well. It shows how we have adapted this biological need of seclusion and introspection into our culture and our rituals. Very few minor factual lapses, most probably the effects of a momentary lack of focus rather than the lack of knowledge, do not spoil the pleasure of reading.
