The author poses challenging questions such as whether suicide is a personal right or if it should be obviated no matter what, and if the benefit of dulling one's depression with the use of antidepressants outweighs the cost of emotional resilience, why the disease's focus in the medical community isn't on prevention like so many other diseases such as diabetes, and so much more. He is refreshingly matter-of-fact about his experiences with the disease, something that is difficult at best for most people, myself included.
The Noonday Demon is by far the most perfectly written book about depression I have ever read. Solomon's personal experiences and those of others, coupled with research of every imaginable aspect of the disease equal a tome that is nothing short of a bible for the suffering and those who care about them.
