4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book But Don't Trust The Pills, 23 Oct 2011
This review is from: Depressive Illness (Kindle Edition)
This is a great book for understanding the different types of depressives illnesses and how they effect us and those around us; it is really well written with much clarity, insight and humor. However, when the author started to recommend anti-depressants as a solution to depression I turned off slightly. From my experience the doctors pills help to suppress the feelings of depression rather than help get to the core of the problem. Therefore, I found that the cure lies within self-expression and meditation; mind-altering substances such as psilocybin and DMT can also help to weave out old habits of thinking. It is also important to understnad how the environment around you can help instill positivity so it is best to be careful what company you keep. Whether you agree with me or not this book is still worth reading though and I do recommend it but I'd just stay away from the doctors prescriptions.

If you really want to understand why you are depressed or think the way you do I would steer you towards the works of Gurdjieff, Carl Jung, Timothy Leary and Wilhelm Reich. Still, like I said I am in no implying that this book is not worth reading; it totally is... but it is definately worth looking deeper...
