More About Mark A. Sutton & Bruce Hennigan
In his youth, Mark worked at two pizza parlors, and it was there that his initial interest in making pizza began. Several years later, he became vegetarian, and after watching a friend effortlessly make pizzas at home for a couples dinner party, became re-focussed on learning to do the same himself in a non-restaurant environment. After going vegan, Mark began exploring making totally plant-based pizzas. During this period he came to the conclusion that a cookbook based on these recipes would help vegetarians kick the cheese need. The path and his approach changed considerably when learning of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's peer-reviewed research demonstrating that a no-added fat plant-based diet can not only reverse heart disease, but in theory, prevent it. Mark decided to incorporate this knowledge into his recipes and make them all truly "heart healthy." Mark has been employed as the Visualizations Coordinator for two NASA Earth Satellite Missions, a freelance interactive multimedia computer consultant, an organic farmer, and head photographer. He's developed media published in several major magazines and shown internationally on network broadcasts, DVD's, websites, and managed/edited a cookbook. Mark has produced work for two Nobel Peace Prize winners (on Global Climate Change) and helped create UN Peace Medal Award-winning high school curriculum. He's currently the editor of the Mad Cowboy e-newsletter, has been a vegetarian for 20 years and vegan the past 11. Mark's an avid nature photographer, gardener, environmentalist, and is single. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org

Go ahead and buy it Sep 28, 2005
This book is VERY helpful. It's both scripturally and medically educating. To complement each day's reading, in the back of the book are daily perforated cards with the scripture and memory joggers for the day. Well-written by 2 men who still face depression, but don't let it overtake them. I'm on day 22 today. The card says "LifeFilter 22 / I Can Dilute My Depression through Sharing / "Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety" (Proverbs 11:14). On the back it says "Today / 1. Remeber: God does not want me to be alone in this world. That's why he is always with me. / 2. I resolve to leave isolation and share meaningfully with some positive, wise Christians. / 3. If necessary, I will find a godly counselor and let him/her partner with me in overcoming my depression." It's a cool approach and has taught me a lot. This and "Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy" are the books that have helped me the most. That along with medication, counseling, time, and talking things out with friends. There is hope. You want there to be hope. You can have a life again.
Best Book On Conquering Depression Out There Nov 4, 2004
First I'd like to say that if I could give more than 5 stars, I would for this book. This book is a wonderful book on how to conquer depression, an illness that has plagued me for over 9 years. It is written by two professionals who both are strong Christians and both have suffered from depression which makes you know they understand what you are going through and there is hope. I also appreciated the fact that I didn't have to sift through what I felt was Scriptural and what I felt wasn't as this book is very Biblically based and glorifies God throughout the whole book. If you are suffering, have suffered, or know someone who is suffering from Depression please purchase this book for them. I only wish I had found it years ago when I went through my first major depression.
Wonderful book! Feb 12, 2004
This book is really great! When I was first diagnosed with depression, I didn't understand a lot about it. This book really helped me to understand what was going on with me emotionally and understand what was chemically going on in my body. When the authors say they understand where you're at, they really do! They've been there too. From a Christian perspective, this book is very bibically based. It is the best book I've found on depression yet, at least from a Christian perspective.
An excellent work - well done! May 6, 2002
Thank you Mark and Bruce for putting together the book "Conquering Depression". I believe it to be the best and most practical book I have ever read on the subject. For once I have found a book outlining a workable program, that develops tangible skills, and that forges and sharpens mighty weapons to defeat and overcome depression. A book that addresses the tri-part nature of man: his spirit, his soul (mind, will and emotions) and his body. I am convinced that should people who suffer the dreadful effects of despair and depression follow the 30 day program outlined in your book, they will be empowered to overcome and defeat their depression. Again, well done !
Conquering depression is hard work Oct 31, 2001
Mark Sutton and Bruce Hennigan do a great job of explaining some of the many possible causes for depression as well as steps to take in overcoming it. I discovered that a person may battle depression on a daily basis, but it can be overcome. The Life Filters are great! Written from a compassionate viewpoint, this book will help you with depression if you are willing to work and apply its suggestions.
