Reviews - What do customers think about Defeating Depression: Real Help for You and Those Who Love You?
Real Help for Real People Oct 30, 2007
This is one of the most helpful books on managing and overcoming depression that I've come across. It's fast-paced and easy to read, and I really like the emphasis on finding practical ways to minimize the symptoms. The author has a very "take action" approach, which I've found to be very useful. I would definitely recommend it to individuals struggling with depression and to those who might have a friend or family member experiencing depression. (Every chapter includes a "take action" section written specifically for family members.)
