A sufferer will frequently spot experiences with which they can relate. One writer mentioned driving his car home from work like a "weapon". I'd always thought "that's just me" - and what's more he put it in better words than I ever could. And for someone who lives with a depressive, its probably even more reassuring to find that these symptoms (because ultimately that's what they are, not character flaws or signs of weakness) are common - not to be afraid of.
The most wonderful thing about this book is the tales of hope. So many people found effective treatment in counselling, medication and other alternatives. And this has coincided with and contributed to a determination on my part to really research and try different treatments. So many people have tamed the dog before me, why can't I?
It is so accessible as well and can be read in either short or long sittings. So many books on depression are too technical - this is much more readable. Ideal for someone who is depressed. In fact, for me, its a sign of good literature, full stop.
Out of all the books I have read on the topic this one I found the most helpful, it gave a wider range of views and had some experts included as well, it was informative, supportive and not pushy or overwhelming to read.
We have a son in his mid 20's who suffers from depression and his depression over the last 6 to 8 years or so have taken it's toll on our family. Reading this book helped me to understand more about his condition and how he feels and hopefully how we can try to help him work through his condition without pulling the any of his immediate family any further into our own (minor) depression than we have already been and without increasing the pressure on him to "get over it".
I found it to be a useful and interesting book.
