Fascinating, must-read if you know someone with or yourself have depression 1 mars 2014
Par jdmjdmjdmjdm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
A very new and interesting perspective on depression based on the author's two decades of research in the field. He makes a very persuasive case against the "chemical imbalance" explanation for depression -- and the accompanying view that depression can be categorized into discrete states, e.g. normal, moderately depressed, severely depressed -- and offers as an alternative the theory, backed by psychology experiments, that feeling "down" is a tool the brain uses for demotivation (when we're wasting energy pursuing an impossible goal). Depression, in this model, results from, among other things, continuing to pursue an unattainable goal, or at least continuing to work without signs of progress, because this prompts the mind to ramp up how "down" you feel. The harder you push, the harder it pushes back.

If that sounds simplistic and like it misses a lot, that's because it's just one of many elements of depression Rottenberg touches on. I don't want to recap the whole book here; suffice to say that it's an illuminating read, particularly if you or someone you know has depression -- there are a lot of "oh, now it makes sense why [I/he/she] do/es that."

A enlightening read 24 mars 2014
Par Dan Fields - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This well-written book has changed the way that I think about depression. Rottenberg presents the latest research in animals and human on the evolutionary function of mood, including low mood. He in no way dismisses the anguish caused by depression and candidly describes his own experience with severe depression. But the studies that he discusses pose a serious challenge to the common notion of depression as a chemical imbalance and also shed light on why depression can be so tenacious. I applaud the author for seeking to spark a long-overdue national dialogue on depression and to reduce the stigma attached to it. As someone who has dealt with depression and has read a lot on the subject, I found Rottenberg's arguments refreshing and persuasive.

Hint: focus in increased well-being, not happiness 15 mai 2014
Par JC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
A worthwhile and comfortably logical read. The author, a doctor specializing in and with first-hand experience with depression, convincingly uses facts and perspective to explain depression. I would recommend that the reader read the first and last chapters in that order before proceeding with the other chapters. The first chapter is powerful in placing weight on the issue and the author's suggested perspective while the last chapter, by way of discussing what is successful, makes a compelling case of what is missing in today's typical approach. 5 Stars for ease of explanation and compelling message.

Worthwhile Read 12 avril 2014
Par Todd Windyhill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The real specter of a "depression epidemic" in our country suggests far more reading, understanding, and perhaps government funding to be very much in order. So, this work is both timely and value-added for a broad spectrum of interests, and Jon's concise writing style and relative brevity makes it an easy read, perhaps one-sitting. A good bit of real-world and relevant substance is packed into 200 pages.

I've been treated for Clinical Depression for over a decade, experiencing several major episodes. I was able to relate to many of Jon's descriptions, and suggest the episodes are so profound, one never experiencing or closely observing the same cannot fully relate. It can be virtually debilitating, overpowering even the strongest of wills.

I've been treated in a very traditional, yet effective manner. Jon raises the prospect of a "mood-based" approach to treatment, as a means of getting to the real roots of depression, and not relying on the "chemical imbalance" sourcing so commonly mentioned. Perhaps anti-depressants are not the most effective approach, depsite the widepsread use and popularity in the medical community. If they are, why is the stated epidemic continuing unabated? Why are so many victims suffering despite the availability and use of numerous drug therapies?

Jon prudently makes no definitive pronouncements but raises questions. With his first-hand experience in mind, and as a scholar to boot, the questions are very much worth raising. Can we trace the origins of depression periods to the evolution of certain fundamental positive and/or negative moods? Study and serious consideration are in order when seemingly tens of millions are burdened with depression, and the numbers are increasing. What is it about depression that we don't know or cannot unlock? The nation's ER's can attest to this, with universal frustration, due to lack of training or grasp of the science, through no fault of their own.

Jon stresses the lack of a definitive "cure", the relatively scant knowledge about depression, and its social stigma as reasons for new ideas, approaches, and perspectives. I strongly agree, and urge the reading of this work and similar that might raise the nation's "knowledge bar" on this insidious afflition.

Difficult topic, worthwhile read 22 avril 2014
Par Gretchen M. Gillis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This thoughtful, well-writen book includes enough science to be credible and enough personal history to be compelling. We are all surrounded by people who are depressed, so it is useful and comforting to gain an understanding of depression from this book. Much as I would like to re-read this right away, it's more important to share my copy with family and friends.
Congratulations and thanks to Dr. Rottenberg for this book.
