Ce livre est un des meilleurs "premiers soins" pour une dépression grave. L'auteur prends en considération que le "grand déprimé" ne peut à peine lire un livre, écouter de la musique, regarder la télé et manque d'énergie pour les tâches journalières les plus banales. L'auteur, un psychiatre britannique experimenté réussit dans ce petit manuel à donner des informations très précieuses en très peu de mots.

This is a very good book, on a difficult subject :Depression.
The book is short and very well written. The author makes difficult concepts easy to understand. The symptoms of depression are carefully described, as well as the patient's feelings during his recovery. The different treatments are fairly explained. Readind this book will be useful to patients and to medical general practitioners.
And, to quote the author, it will be useful to read it "several times".

Excellent Book on Stress related depression 27 février 2006
Par John Smith - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book accurately describes those most at risk from stress-related depression.

In contrast to many books on depression, this text takes the view that those most susceptible to depression are people with strong personalities. Being naturally conscientious and reliable, they tend to carry on under great stress, where weaker people would simply give up. In the end the burden becomes too much and they succumb to depression rather like a rubber band which will snap if stretched too far. The work attempts to explain the cause of depression and how it can be treated - by looking after yourself, antidepressant treatments and talking therapies.

An excellent book and, unlike many on this subject, is not based on some crack-pot personal theory, but simply sensible advice that will be compatible with your medical treatments.

Depressive Illness 7 octobre 2012
Par Michael - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Reassuring to have your anxiety and depressive feelings so well understood and articulated. Depressive Illness puts into reassuring words the indescribable depth and trauma of mental illness brought on by stress. The book moves from an understanding of the illness, through the causes and concludes with practical ways to move forward (which include medication and sensible coping mechanisms) and leave the illness behind. Do read.

It is an easy, convincing read 26 septembre 2014
Par LFM - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There are times I wish reviewers could leave an "unstarred comment" or something of the sort.

On one level, this is a -phenomenal- book: It is an easy, convincing read. It is -very- flattering to its intended audience, and provides workable, gentle, helpful, possibly-life-saving advice and insight. It is a quick read, which is especially good for those of us who might be having a tough time mustering energy to do much of anything. I really want to give it five stars. I believe, firmly, it helped kick off an effort to break out of the horrible place I was in, so I, personally, am beyond grateful.

Unfortunately, it is -utterly- without citations, so those of us with just enough scientific training/interest to be skeptical might have a hard time swallowing the claims it makes.

Now, part of the easy approachability comes from -not- being a citation-packed, rambling, self-defending and/or jargon-filled work, so I understand the editorial choice, and could allllmost defend it. But, really, adding a few endnotes on specific claims wouldn't break the spell!

*However* (and it's a big one), one "study" cited with some detail was interesting to me, so I set out to find it. The closest thing I could find was kindasortamaybe just a bit like what the claims in the book were, to the point where I have more than a slight suspicion the "study" anecdote was wildly misrepresented to increase its anecdotal usefulness... and may as well have been completely fabricated... which then made me doubt every other bit of the book, which is a shame -- and really hurt its cause.

On this point, I think a one star rating could be justified. But I am not kind to pop-press books and don't read many of them for this reason -- this book is *heads and shoulders* above all the other crap on the "self help" shelf.

In the end, it's just *such* a helpful, kind, useful book that a one-star seems, well, more harm than good. I just wish I could believe it without hesitation. Now, how much this matters to each individual reader is left as an exercise to them -- if you're inclined to believe what you read, this book is -tremendously- helpful, whether you're depressed or (maybe even more so) if you have someone in your life who is... but, if you're of the "CITATION NEEDED!" mindset, you might have some trouble on the "how am I supposed to by THAT?" front.

It's also worth noting in a star-unrelated way that it is written in British English: There are turns of phrase, punctuation, and spelling [errors | choices, you be the judge] that may serve to annoy or alienate American readers. I know it broke my captivation frequently, but I doubt that's going to be a problem for many. I'm told I'm too picky about "stuff like that."

If you're feeling crushed by the world and the a-hole in your head just won't shut up and just getting to the giant pile of Things To Do seems impossible, or you just can't shake feeling awful, you might be well served by trying this book, especially if you can't/don't want to get to a therapist. But, whatever you do, try to get some help. You deserve it, whether you believe it or not. Buy this book, in fact, right now. It's one of the few things in this tough world that I can almost guarantee won't make it worse.

Hope for the depressed 10 août 2012
Par lolo - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a book which must be read by everyone suffering from depression. It has a medical point of view which makes it believable and a slightly different take of the illness than I have ever read about before. Indeed I nearly felt good for suffering from depression! Not quite, because as anyone who suffers from it knows it is a crippling illness when it is at its worst, but this book would give hope to even the most cynical. A most informative read.

Helpful, Insightful, and Encouraging 1 octobre 2014
Par Scott - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a good book for someone who is looking for a direct, non-technical tutorial on depression. It is particularly helpful for someone with a recent diagnosis who wants to know the basics. It also contains a lot of helpful reassurances and insights for someone struggling with the condition. It can be very encouraging in parts. The author is a British psychiatrist, and while his use of British slang can be confusing and foreign to American English speakers sometimes, the overall message remains strong and intact.
