Publisher's Summary

Like heart disease, says psychotherapist Richard O'Connor, depression is fueled by complex and interrelated factors: genetic, biochemical, environmental. In this refreshingly sensible book, O'Connor focuses on an additional factor often overlooked: our own habits. Unwittingly we get good at depression. We learn how to hide it, how to work around it. We may even achieve great things, but with constant struggle rather than satisfaction. Relying on these methods to make it through each day, we deprive ourselves of true recovery, of deep joy and healthy emotion.
Undoing Depression teaches us how to replace depressive patterns with a new and more effective set of skills. We already know how to "do" depression - and we can learn how to undo it. With a truly holistic approach that synthesizes the best of the many schools of thought about this painful disease, O'Connor offers new hope - and new life -f or sufferers of depression.

I cried at a few different spots in this book. "THAT'S ME! THAT"S ME! THAT'S ME!" and "YES OF COURSE!......"

This is a must read for anyone depressed or if a loved one is depressed. It gives you proven tools and things you can do TODAY to get better. It explains depression very well and I learned a lot of things that I didn't know before hand. I learned about characteristics of myself that were related to my depression that I had no idea were related.

The narrorator (who happens to be the author) is very easy to listen too.

I have suffered from severe depression for 10 years and this book gave me new HOPE and EMPOWERMENT!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you do or even think you might suffer from depression get this book. It might save your life.

Eye & Mind Opening!

I very highly recomend this excellent book to anyone who is suffering from depression or, has close friends or family with this illness. This book is so well nariated that it is very easy to digest. It is so easy to listen to and very hard to turn off for a nap. What makes this book so entertaining & enlightening is that the author himself is also a sufferer and he has many years in medical experience working with so many patients having varying degrees of depression that the book is totally believable. You can actually feel the sincerity & compassion in the authors voice as he so tenderly reads. Very well done. I am in debt to this kind person. wagnernd
