Great book if you are depressed and skeptical

This book treats the reader very well. He acknowledges the problem of getting started with a program to overcome depression, and even suggests which chapters to skip if you want to get going quickly. Mr. Gilbert never talks down to the reader. For its focus on practical results and its thoughtfully organized, compassionate approach to the reader, I say this book is a cut above all others I've seen and a great thing to have if you would like to overcome depression. If you are depressed, then you will know that many writings on this subject speak an alien language that makes it clear that the author doesn't really understand depressed people. This book is the opposite of that. It anticipates your skepticisms and doubts in a straightforward way that are incredibly useful in keeping your mind applied to the goal of overcoming depression.

An excellent aide...

in the fight against both chronic or situational depression.Its straightforward, unsugarcoated style is still gentle and useful. The exercises are well worth the time.

A resource book to keep at your bedside.

I have been suffering from depression for many years,unaware of my own self destructive thoughts. Mr Gilbert is a god send. He approaches the subject very compassionately and set me on the road to a heathier way of thinking. Any time I start to feel that "black dog of depression" bite at my heels, I pick up this book to refresh my skills in logical healthy thinking. I have reread this book so many times the cover is wearing out.My advice is don't just read it once.

good !

I read many books on depression like "Undoing Depression""Self-Coaching" and some other books on low self-esteem. This book helped me a lot. I can't remember how many I said,"'s me!" The author read completely my mind and his compassionate,sensitive,friendly notes healed my pain. He writes all emotional troubles we may have:anger,shame,guilt..and more. He also offers many many ideas and thoughts to replace negative thinking. I highly recommend this book to women suffering from depression.Another book I recommend is "Breaking the Chain of Low Self Esteem".

compassionate and intelligent

I must have looked through dozens of books when I was first diagnosed with depression. This one is absolutely the best. Insightful and caring without being swarmy or condescending (why do so many authors treat people with depression like they are children?). You'll see yourself in this book--I know I did.
