I got passed chapter 1 (Getting Started) where it tells you the Five Keys to recovery from depression in general, without going too deep into it. I liked the part where one of the authors said that there's a history of his relatives going out of business after succeeded at it for a while and eventually committed suicide, and he said he chose to be a doctor because in his mind he wouldn't go "out of business" if he's a doctor.

Simply put, the ONLY book I have ever found that has worked for me. I've had chronic major depressive disorder for at least a decade (don't freak - it's in my family on both sides and I was resistant to meds which was stupid because once we found the right ones they really have made a huge difference too). Ordinarily for people, it doesn't last that long or be as severe.

All that said, I think this book would even be helpful for ANYONE to read. They don't get in your face, get pushy with you, blame you, or give you a fake 'rah rah' speech that others have. They give practical advice based on their years of experience with patients. They give you an easy system to help you understand the disease better, how you react, different situational advice, etc. And then they gently guide you towards a better path. Okay, that sounded creepy. Um, well let's try this: they help you find different ways and actually do help toward getting your life back. Maybe even a better one than you first had.

I'm bad with reading a book cover to cover. So I do what I've always done, just open up the book when I need some help and somehow either right away or over time what I've read has become applicable and helped. I've bought and given this book to three people who are close to me. I don't give rave reviews over just anything. I'm not in any way affiliated with the writers, their publicists, anyone related to the book, related to them, or even their dog walkers.

I bought this book back in 2007 when I was on the pit of depression. I was nervous waiting for the book to arrive. Being in depression, of course I didn't do anything other than sitting in my room and staring blankly at the ceiling day after day night after night. At the time I was just beginning to start with medication and therapy. The medication started to take effect after a week or so, and then I tried reading this book. But the book is too technical for someone who is actually coping with depression.

I got passed chapter 1 (Getting Started) where it tells you the Five Keys to recovery from depression in general, without going too deep into it. I liked the part where one of the authors said that there's a history of his relatives going out of business after succeeded at it for a while and eventually committed suicide, and he said he chose to be a doctor because in his mind he wouldn't go "out of business" if he's a doctor. But eventually this fear in his mind caught up to him and he thought at one point 'this is it' like what happened to his relatives will eventually happen to him too no matter if he's a doctor or a businessman. I think anyone with history of depression could relate to this.

And then I got to only half of chapter 2 (Charting a Course for Recovery), before putting the book down forever. I even did the exercise where it asks you to write down your story and list down your problems under the Five Keys mentioned earlier. I couldn't do that without feeling like my brain was going to explode. I remember the feeling even now after I got off the medication. Everytime you try to do the exercises, you'll get in too deep into what you're trying to forget it overwhelms you too much you'll eventually kill yourself, seriously.

I'd say this book isn't suitable for someone who's just beginning with their medication and treatment. Not for someone who IS in depression trying to get out of it. It might be a good book otherwise, for the people whose loved ones are coping with depression. Or probably as a teaching material.

So I guess I got my life back, but not by reading this book, but by holding on to my faith and dreams.

This is an excellent book, honoring the WHOLE person (body, mind and spirit), down-to-earth and very respectful of the different ways people deal with their personal distress. I am very surprised at the Publisher's Weekly review, as I found the book to be just the opposite of that assessment. In fact, this is the only book I've read whose authors, in fact, DID seem like they knew from experience the dark maze of depression. I have shared the book with others and will continue to recommend it. I discovered the book by accident at a bookstore one lonely gray day and read it three times. It truly is a life-changer.

As a person with long-standing problems and treatment of depression, I found this by far the most thorough and useful discussion of depression ever. It is excellent writing from warm, caring, down-to-earth-sounding professionals who do not seem to feel that they are All-Powerful. The authors certainly give the readers all the tools needed to help themselves and to seek and follow professional help when needed. In my opinion, this book should be a textbook for all medical students, whatever their specialty, as well as psychology students, seminary students, and anyone in the "helping" professions.
This was a very informative book, written in plain English for those who are depressed and their families. There are many good exercises besides the profound text it provides. It covers the many forms and facets of depression in a very user-friendly way and I will not hesitate to use it and pass it one to others who may need it. It contains all the keys plus suggestions on how to put them into action and if that alone is not enough, how to talk to your doctor about medications. It gives life coping strategies that anyone can use. I couldn't put this book down.
