Loved this book -- it is simply and straight-forward but full of terrific, easy to apply advice. Terrific in every way. I gave it to a friend who has been through tons of such books and she is delighted with this one, too, for the same reasons.

I have read many, many books on depression having suffered for most of my life, but the one I reach for when in the midst of a bad spell is this one. The author presents very practical things you can do that actually help! When I'm in a really bad space feeling the pain of depression, I can't read a big book of theory and long-term solutions; I need help now! And this little book delivers. I often forget to turn to it, though; depression has you do the exact opposite of what really helps, like isolating and ruminating in all the negative thoughts. So I have asked my partner to remind me to get out this book when he recognizes I'm depressed. (He has a whole list now of things to do- the support is wonderful). One little thing I haven't read anywhere else is the eye-movement exercise that somehow resets the pathways in the brain- very simple to do and it works! Of course there's lots of things I do to naturally beat depression such as St. John's wort, eating low-carb, avoiding caffeine as much as possible, 5- HTP, flower remedies, exercising, keeping a journal, energy healing techniques, etc.; I consider those critical to long-term mental health, but sometimes I need something right now to help, and this book delivers, like a trusty friend, when talking to someone else is the last thing I want to do.
