Together Phil and Emme have journeyed to dark places that unfortunately others must traverse, but as Phil eloquently states, "Our goal is to reassure readers...that they are not alone, or crazy, or without hope..." This is a book not only of a triumph over depression, but a triumph of love.

But even if depression hasn't touched your life... READ THIS BOOK. You will never look at a bad day the same way. The next time you tell someone that you're feeling depressed, pick up this book and count your blessings.
I also don't relate to the religious aspects of this book or this couple. Save your money.
I truly believe that Emme and Phillip want to help others. In order to do this they bared themselves so completely. This was a very courageous act.
I could not put the book down. I am a slow reader and I finished the book in 2 days.
I especially like the way the story is told, alternating from Emme's perspective to Phil's, surrounding the same events and periods of time. You get to see depression from the afflicted person's vantage point as well as the caregivers' who are afflicted in their own way. The writing is crisp and articulate...you can't put it down... and conjures a frightening vision of what it is like to be in the midst of such an horrific crisis...and then come out the other side better and stronger. It's nothing short of inspiring.
Phil and Emme have a way of encapsulating large ideas in a simple phrase that can't help but stick in one's mind to carry and help others: "Don't do something permanent about a temporary problem", "You don't just snap out of depression. It's a disease. Do you just snap out of cancer or heart disease?"
If you have suffered from depression yourself or have been touched by this disease through a parent, an uncle or aunt, a grandparent, a friend, a child, a spouse, a co-worker, a teammate, a girlfriend or boyfriend, a classmate...don't walk, run to read this book. It provides uncommon clarity for what has become a global health crisis.
