Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Using concrete examples from her clients' experiences to illuminate what emotional bad habits are and how to undo them, psychotherapist Russianoff offers practical suggestions for breaking the grip of depression. Exercise, a new hobby, and making a tape during the good times as a reminder that depression is only temporary are among her tips. This book is best suited to those who function well but do not feel that they are living to full potential; those with more serious emotional difficulties will find it far too simplistic and superficial to offer any real benefit. For public libraries and larger academic collections. Kim Banks, Columbia Univ. Libs., New York
