Very well-written and easy to understand.

I spotted this book's colorful cover at a large bookstore chain and suspected from the beginning that I had finally found something really helpful.

I cannot recommend this book enough for anyone suffering from depression or for anyone who knows someone with the disease.

Format: Hardcover
I am a psychologist working in a college counseling center, and I frequently recommend this book to my clients. The only thing I don't like about the book is the title, because I think it is misleading. Rather than help to "heal" depression, this book is excellent for helping one to understand their depression and to normalize this experience as a means to reduce self-blame. The best part of this book is its unique, easy-to-read format: the chapters are written in outline form, and each chapter is just 1-2 pages long and printed on the left-hand sides of the pages only. The right-hand side pages contain quotes and sayings from famous people who have experienced depression, including Abraham Lincoln ("I am now the most miserable man living"). A great first step to understanding depression in yourself or someone you love.

I found this book to be a great help while dealing with difficult times. It is simple and quick to read with great quotes and phrases from famous poets and historical people that keep the book upbeat and easy to relate to. I would recommend it to anyone who is feeling that they are fighting the never-ending battle of depression alone.

I do not suffer from depression but two of my very closest friends have and do. Both have read this book and asked me to read it also. It helped them feel like there was a way out, and it helped me understand the right and wrong ways to act around those suffering from depression. I think it is an important book.

I first found this book in the library. While the analysis of what depression is may be excellent but standard, the medical aspects informative but routine, the Healing the Mind section is outstanding and unique. It strikes the right balance between accurate information and humor/surprise. May seem simple, but that's the genius of it. Makes profound ideas easy to comprehend and even FUN. I'm buying my own copy both for myself and to share with friends. The book is a keeper.

When a person is depressed, it takes a lot to get through to them. I spotted this book's colorful cover at a large bookstore chain and suspected from the beginning that I had finally found something really helpful. Even the bold nature of the title, "How to HEAL Depression," appealed to the hopeful kernel deep inside. I was right. It was the most helpful of all the books I read on the subject during the time two years ago when my college-age daughter was battling depression. I had waged my own battle with this problem some 20 years before, and and was thankful that I could recognize the symptoms. This book would have helped me then. I am only glad it was around recently to help us now. "How to Heal Depression" offers a simplicity and straightforwardness that recognizes the delicate nature of the depressed person. When you are depressed, it's hard to maintain an attention span. In order to get through, one needs to make clear, bright, easy-to-understand statements. The fierce inte

For someone suffering from depression, listening to this tape made it worse. I was looking for answers, encouragement and a reason to believe there was hope. Listening to someone speak for a few seconds and then listen to a depressing oldie and birds chirping made me want to throw it out of the window.

Great book, excellent book...if you're not seriously depressed. Full of inspiring quotes and motivational words, able to heal those with SHORT term depression in a single bound. For those with chronic depression? Well, it's the same old rehash of everything we already knew before. You know, the stuff that didn't work last time...

I love this book! It should be in the collection of every library and I think it should be in every doctor's waiting room. It's short and sweet and easy to read and it really drives home the point that you're not defective, that other people have the same problem, and there is help. I read the book once, and then I decided I wanted to go back through it and make notes from the pages that really spoke to me. At the end I had more than 100 pages that I wanted to keep quotes from.
