You do learn terms and really are able to study in depth what depression is, what causes it, and that it is real and does have a major effect on those it touches. He gives you stories that really show how it can set you back in life sometimes lifetimes. It can be crippling. It's kind of a wake up that we alone can get ourselfves unstuck and move forward.
My only ciritcism of the book is that some of the exercises are in boxes with a grey background and they are harder to read than the regular text and I think that was a poor choice on the publishers part. If the reader is feeling bad they don't want anything to be more difficult than it has to be.
Each chapter provides many meaningful and common-sense approaches to helping oneself through depressive episodes. I don't think Dr. Gordon is so much "anti-drug" as he is against what he perceives as the overuse and over-prescribing of these drugs as a panacea for all mood problems and negative life experiences, such as divorce or death of loved ones. I have already seen the value of some of his wonderful suggestions, especially the use of exercise and meditation in fighting depressive feelings and hopelessness. There is also a glossary at the back of the book with a list of numerous resources for the reader to use in trying to find support during down periods.
Thank you, Dr. Gordon, for providing this excellent book for those of us who know that the answer to our angst does not necessarily lie in a medicine bottle, but in also actively finding the resources and support to help heal ourselves.
