"...provides more than 100 activities to prevent depression from occuring and how to control it once it begins."
"Dr. Yapko has brought this book to all of us who battle the enemy of joy and peace—depression. And it is a wonderful guide. In it, he will teach you, as he has taught me, how to understand depression and how to defeat it. He will teach you how to look at yourself, the world, and the future in a new way. He will teach you that you can have a peaceful and meaningful life, and he will teach you how to do that."
—Dr. Lynn D. Johnson, Ph.D., director of the Brief Therapy Center, Salt Lake City, Utah, and author of Psychotherapy in the Age of Accountability

I found this book to be somewhat original and filled with information that will be useful to many people, regardless of whether they consider themselves depressed. I come from the school of thought that the greatest component of moderate to severe depression is biochemical, though most people find themselves in the realm of mild depression. For the mildly depressed, Yapko's advice may be more likely to work. And, like I said, most people could benefit from transforming the way they view and interact with the world.
