What if much of today's "mental illness"—depression, grief, loss of faith, fear of death—is brought on not just by chemical imbalance or dysfunctional upbringing? What if it is a result of how poorly we cope with our complex troubles: divorce, bankruptcy, child-rearing, climbing the corporate ladder? What if, instead of a psychiatrist's prescription, the timeless wisdom from philosophers of the past can solve our personal problems of the present?

Dr. Lou Marinoff borrows hios treatment practices from Buddhism and Taoism in the ancient East, the classical Greeks and Renaissance thinkers of the West, and the Utilitarians and Existentialists of the modernizing world.

If you're facing a dilemma—whether it's handinlg a relationship, living ethically, dealing with a career change, or finding meaning in your life—the world's most important thinkers throughout the centuries will help guide you toward a solution. Try Plato, Not Prozac!
