In order for you to enjoy this book, you will need to put down your red pen. That was hard to do- but I tried to get beyond that in order to see the beauty of 20+ people sharing their stories of depression, and how they have all coped with it at different phases and in different ways. The purpose of the book was to help readers feel not alone with an illness that still carries a stigma, and it achieved its purpose. How cool is that?

This book may be useful for someone who does not have depression and wants a glimpse into what it can be like. As a person who is depressed, on the whole I did not find it helpful. There were perhaps three sentences in the book that resounded in me, but honestly I don't feel any less alone.
