These two qualities combine to make this book a genuine "must read" for anyone wrestling with the twin adversaries of depression and anxiety. Debbie reveals everything she's learned about how the brain works and how that knowledge can be used to deliberately change how you think, how you see the world, and how you react to it. It's very difficult for people with depression to convey to people who aren't depressed how bleak and hopeless the world can look from inside the maze. Debbie not only understands that but she also reassures her readers that there's a way out if they understand the nature of the journey and stick with it. And she provides hope that's based on science, not faith or mere hope (though her message is wildly hopeful).
Here's the bottom line: Your brain can change, you can change it, and you can do so methodically and deliberately.
The world of depression can be a forlorn place, indeed. Debbie Hampton is a great guide and friend who can, I promise, turn the journey into an adventure. If you are plagued with depression or anxiety, please forgive the pun when I tell you that buying this book is a no-brainer.
Love the chapter on the difference between feeling and emotions. We have both, but they are different, come from different areas of the body. That is a reread chapter for me.
To be honest I am on Chapter 12, coming up is a chapter on Should - can't wait to get into that. Bought both the Kindle and the print, loaned my print out. Looking forward to comparing notes with my friend when we both are done reading the book.
We all have brains, this book teaches you how to live with your brain. Make it work for you for a better, happier more peaceful life. It gives you tools, some I have used and I know they work, some are new to me. The people at work are saying I look happier since I started reading her two books. Debbie, Thank You because I am happier now that I am using your tools.
I heartily recommend her book to anyone and especially to anyone wanting a read that is easy to understand. Debbie penned this honestly and to the point, making perfect use of anecdotes to demonstrate concepts without making it "all about Debbie".
Be assured that I will be rereading this from time to time to help me in my own continuing recovery. Recovery is my lifelong project.
This book has really given me a lot of "aha!" moments. Giving me comfort to read advise given by someone who has gone through depression as well. Debbie is really cool. I admire her for her fight to get her life back on track after depression, suicide attempt and brain injury.
When I read this book a lot of things start to make sense to me. About me. About my life.
This is my new buddy. I carry it around in my bag every day.
I really like that the chapters are short - for those days where my concentration isn't at it's best. It's easy to read and I love the way Debbie writes.
Do yourself a favour and buy this book if you want to get know your brain. You don't need to walk around with a depression to enjoy this book. You just need to be curious about the mind!
