Where does The Anti-Depressant Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Dr. Towery recorded his book to accompany the print and Kindle versions. It is not a "stand-alone" listen, but an aid to make it easier for teens to work with a written version. The material in this book is INVALUABLE. It is a guide for any teen (or person) who wants to feel better. My daughter was suffering from anxiety and depression so severe that she was unable to attend school for over a year. After reading this book, following the guidelines and then working with Dr. Towery in person, she has her life back and is thriving. Dr. Towery is not a clinician, he is a healer. Her recovery still feels like a miracle. Now when any feelings of anxiety or depression arise, this book is a guide to help her work through it. For any teenager who is struggling, they can look through the table of contents and see the areas they can work on. Most teens are exhausted and stressed out, whether or not they are suffering from depression. This book confronts all of the things we know to make life more difficult for teens (lack of sleep, not enough exercise, poor nutrition, overusing electronics, etc.) and provides the guidelines to follow if they are determined to feel better. It also provides positive things to add to their lives that are proven to uplift mood. It is a toolkit that every teenager and parent of a teenager should have.

Dr. Towery's "The Anti-Depressant Book" is a fantastic resource for teens, young adults, parents, clinicians, and everyone else looking for more help overcoming depression and staying healthy. The writing is down to earth (and even occasionally humorous), suggestions are practical, and Dr. Towery skillfully breaks down the importance of motivation in overcoming depression through cost benefit analyses which can help anyone decide whether recovery is really what they want.
I LOVE this audio version of the book. It is meant to be listened to while reading a hard copy of the book as completing all written exercises is paramount to the reader's success. That being said, the audio recording is a fabulous addition to the hard copy. The author reads his own book in an entertaining and easy-to-listen-to fashion, and he even surprises his listeners in chapter nine with a special hilarious accent ;)
I highly recommend this audiobook. Enjoy!
