I often work with depressed patients and have read many books on the subject, most of which I've found to be too theoretical, complicated or unhelpful. I read Sue's book from cover to cover at the weekend and will be recommending it to all my patients as it actually offers realistic - and heart-felt - advice. I also valued the personal touches where Sue shared her own experiences of this debilitating condition. This book is full of useful ideas the author has used herself - and is written in an engaging and interesting way. Best of all it's short and to the point with dozens of really practical ideas, such as giving yourself 10 minutes' worry time or asking yourself whether you'd worry about something on your deathbed. I also enjoyed her distraction techniques, such as listening to uplifting music. It won't take you long to read but it could change your life - for good.

This book is easy to read, encouraging but truthful and practical. Sue provides a good support which can go alongside professional help for those going through the tough time of depressive illness. Her other book on self esteem issues is similarly excellent. Has helped myself and others too.

Just what was needed! I have ordered books about depression in the past, but they have tended to be too long and scientific. That is the last sort of thing one wants to read when suffering from depression, but this book was perfect.

For those trying to understand what depression is, this is a good starting point. Only the format is a little vague. It helped me.
