This review is from: Overcoming Depression : a Self-help Guide Using Cognitive Behavioral Techniques (Paperback)
I only wish I had read this book when I was twenty, when I was first told to expect to have recurrent episodes of severe depression for the rest of my life, rather than now, at fifty-five. Since my diagnosis I've been reading everything I can get my hands on, and trying everything. Lots of things have been helpful, some haven't, but this beats the lot. It's all here: why people can get depressed, in terms of the evolution of the species, the development of the individual and his or her situation; and, in very concrete practical and sensible terms, what you can do about it. It pulled together a lot of what I'd found out from other sources. Obviously, it's different strokes for different folks, but for me this was a real find.

I too have had depression all my life, from a child. I have tried everything exercise, pills, accupuncture, and also read every book written. This has been the most helpful book to myself and my husband. It has helped me for the first time in my life to live a more controlled life.
