As with other books, symptoms are described for readers to make an initial self-diagnosis for depression. So many books list these only using uncommunicative terms such as "difficulty making decisions", "worrying", "loss of interest", "poor memory" which one will have difficulty recognizing as one's own problems when in an inobservant frame of mind. Rowe however, also gives specific, personable descriptions of thoughts and behaviour obtained from therapy sessions with sufferers. Among the pages the depressed reader will surely see some of the very same preoccupations and habits which he/she suffers and be alerted. Besides the relief to readers who thus learn that others share their own embarassing difficulties, treatment is facilitated when one is aware of resistive thoughts and actions.
The book is probably most useful as a first book for those deciding whether to pursue therapy or whether to make life changes. This is because the book attempts to demonstrate that therapists are aware of the problems which sufferers experience and that depression is well studied.Read more ›
