Publisher's Summary

Dorothy Rowe, the internationally renowned psychologist, brings 25 years of experience to this excellent audiobook. She shows how every one of us can take charge of our lives and find hope, happiness and freedom. Depression is one of the most debilitating and imprisoning experiences - and it is on the increase. Isolation and fear take over when we realize there is a serious discrepancy between what we thought our life to be and what it actually is. This audiobook shows you how to save yourself from despair, isolation, helplessness. Dorothy Rowe shows you how to come to a level of understanding and self-acceptance which will finally and for ever allow you to break free of the bonds of depression.

    "LISTEN CAREFULLY"

    Read one of Dorothy's 16 books and you will never be quite the same, and seeing as she is a brilliant orator too, this can only enhance. Breaking The Bonds is a manual - beautifully done and incredibly informative. Dorothy Rowe has not been ranked among the 100 living geniuses in the world for nothing. There is a chapter about pride which is stunning. There are few real role models in this world, but Doctor Rowe is one of them.

    "It does what it says on the title"

    By the time I reached the end of the book, I had a much better understanding of my depression. Even better, I felt I had the tools to overcome it. The book is a manageable length and engaging enough to listen to it in one session. Despite its shortness, the content is thorough and every word relevant and uses a very accessible and easy to follow style. Warm and compassionate too. Highly recommend it.

    "Not for me"

    Found it very hard to listen to. A lot of waffle and very little useful information. The mind starts to wander trying to listen to this. I watched a 5 minute video on YouTube about depression and it taught me more than listening to this book for 3 hours. I would look elsewhere.

    "Life-changing."

    Abridged, so it doesn't take a long commitment of listening time, but gives you an astonishing insight into depression and ways to think your way beyond inaction and misery.
