Andrew Solomon clearly put his beautiful heart and soul into writing a personal and cultural cutting edge tome that will live as a cult classic amidst the few indispensable biographical books on depression. It's not to be missed.
Yet this is a difficult book to review. However authentic, informative and impeccable Andrew clearly worked so hard to be, there are self-absorbed problems with melodrama here (as he admits and "does not rue"). More important, he makes few distinctions between depression as its own entity and depression as an integral part of common and more complex personality disorders. This confuses and weakens the impact of an otherwise extraordinary book. In his own and others' stories, he often describes behavior and reasoning characteristic of Borderline Personality Disorder (such as recurring violent rages, self-mutilation, multiple unstable relationships, "moral turpitude," confusion of sexual identity and more) as indicative of depression. This lack of precision does not serve. With the force of Andrew's persuasive charisma, caution and informed reading are in order. (See Stop Walking on Eggshells by Randi Kreger and Paul Mason for priceless information on BPD.)
He names depression as ultimately "the biggest killer on earth" while a chapter on "Prevention" is curiously missing. (See the exceptional A General Theory of Love by UCSF psychiatrists Thomas Lewis, Fari Amini and Richard Lannon for profound thoughts on prevention.) (The chapter titles are Depression, Breakdowns, Treatments, Alternatives [tales of traveling the globe trying them all], Populations, Addiction, Suicide, History, Poverty, Politics, Evolution and Hope. The index is good and the bibliography is great.)
Andrew Solomon can be none other than an enneagram personality type 4. See Personality Types by Don Riso on the enneagram if you're interested.

i was told to read this book from a friend suffering from depressions, to understand him better. i understand him better now but he chose not to live anymore before I finished the book. it was helpful though. thank u Solomon. he really insisted that I should read it so you must have explained things very accurately.

Solomon has written an outstanding authoritative and compelling guide to understanding the many kinds of depression that plague us, their treatments, and their development in various ethnic , age and gender groups. His descriptions of "the experience," having been there several times, communicate directly to the reader. It's a good bet that most of us have had or do have a friend or relative struggling with this crippling process. That's why it is a "must read."

Solomon is one of those gifted writers that paints an absorbable portrait of words that in turn creates an image which remains in the mind of the reader for a long time. And he clearly understands the subject. I kept saying to myself "that's it exactly!" It's good to know that someone is able to put into words many of the difficult feelings I have endured for so long.

Beaucoup de récits, beaucoup de cas présentés, ainsi que l'expérience personnelle de l'auteur. Par moment, cela fait un peu trop. J'ai fini par sauter des paragraphes.
