Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression is the follow-up to the best-selling F**K Anxiety. In this book I take the information, tips, and insights that I have gained as a psychologist and translate them into language that doesn't suck. This is the self-help book for people who don't usually like self-help books.
In Hardcore Self Help: F**K Depression, I talk to you like a friend. That means I speak directly to you, without psychobabble. Instead I tell you why your brain is such a troll. I explain why you have literally no energy or motivation. I tell you why people are so terrible at offering help. Best of all, I tell you how to take realistic steps toward solving these and many other issues caused by depression.

This is such a good listen. You'll take so much away from it, yes it didn't fix me straight away but I had lots of armour to help me with my battle.
"good info pertaining to depression."
this book is not an adults book as much as it is a teens book.
the narration was forced. you can tell he was reading. the jokes were not good. the overall learning was sort of helpful but by the end I just wanted the book to finish.
"He does a really great job."
This book is very straightforward. It has no annoying euphemisms. It's a book about depression that actually communicates it's ideas in a form palatable to cynical minds. Very well read by the author, it doesn't even sound like a reading most of the time. The information is honest, useful and even motivating. The author spends a deal of time trying to connect with the listener, and it goes a little ways toward breaking down some walls you may have about these kinds of books. I generally find self help books unbearably disingenuous or unrealistically optimistic. I didn't get any of that from this. If you are dealing with depression this is worth a listen.
Guy knocked it out of the park. Could have been in the room with me giving some honest advice.
The 'Hardcore' title is a bit extreme, at first glance of the title you may get the idea that the book is attempting to be edgy, but that's not really the case at all. I would only consider it hardcore in comparison to other, more 'flowery' self help books. There is some language the incredibly innocent might find offensive, but really nothing bad to most people, probably.
"A good overview of depression and treatments."
If you're looking for some ground breaking, new method for treating depression, this book is not it. It is, however a good introduction to the world of depression and the most popular ways of treating it. A lot of the information was not new to me but having used of the methods discussed in the book, I do think that they can be useful and helpful to people that have not gone to therapy or are just learning about the topic.
"This is it."
Wow, what a great job the author did with this book. I've been listening to self help books off and on for about a year and this is by far one of my favorites. It's not just an off the wall title to get someone's attention. The message is clear and this book very informative without boring studies being read one after another. This book contains real steps to helping change your life for the better and is very entertaining in the process.
"Very cool, funny and nerdy"
I really enjoyed the audio book. The author made me LOL at times and gave depression a face (I can punch).
"best book ever"
I am so grateful to have found this book. I really love the content It hit home hard for me I actually have listened to this book three times while on my journey out of the depths of depression hell. every time I slip and feel myself falling or losing ground I go to this book and not only does the content encourage me but his voice helps me as well like a true friend just hanging out with me helping me along the way. .. thank you so much, I finally feel that browser will be defeated and peach will be in this castle
"This was super helpful, happy with the experience."
I am sharing this one with my youtube fam <3
This was actually my favorite of this genre so far.
"I thoroughly enjoyed this book!"
I found this book very helpful and enjoyed the gritty letting it all hang out language as well, It helps punctuate the pain and frustration that comes with dealing with depression.
Narrator was great. The book goes over depression and is useful for tips on seeking help such as managing it on your own or what sort of insight to have on professional help. Definitely useful!
