Summary

Things are not all they seem. This is an audiobook about how depression can have benefits as well as costs, and how to reap those benefits. New chapters include the search for meaning, the philosophy of happiness, the psychology of gratitude, and the seven types of love.

"A comprehensive, sympathetic, and thought-provoking guide for those who want to explore their depression in more depth." - The British Journal of Psychiatry

"This book brings understanding and encourages independent solutions. It is remarkable in its shortness and practicality." - The British Medical Association Book Awards

"Dr. Burton understands depression to be a unique experience for each person affected and offers various ways of interpreting the disorder.... Particularly interesting chapters include 'The happiness trap' which considers why happiness has not increased in the past 70 years despite increasing incomes, and ‘Depressive realism' which turns the concept of depression in many cases on its head." - SANE Mental Health Charity
