Five stars for the insight and comfort it brings. The writing isn't great, but it doesn't really need to be: it's mostly to give advice, comfort, and tools to people whose loved ones suffer from depression or other mental illnesses that involve changes in moods. Highly recommended.

Outstanding book, I read it in a day, this book is a must for anyone loving someone who has depression (aware of it or in denial) - it might save not only your sanity but possibly the relationship. The depressed partner may find value in this book too. This book will validate so much for you on what is avert hard journey, cannot recommend it enough.
