Summary

We know you are busy. And this is precisely why we have designed our Wisdom Scientific audio programs so you can learn where and when you want. We also know some people would prefer to work on self-improvement and relationship enrichment privately, rather than with another person. Many problems can be successfully solved without the need to attend formal counseling or other forms of mental health services.

If you feel overwhelmed and dread facing each new day, then this program is for you. Develop tools and strategies to keep common depression out of your life and learn how to be happy. You have only one life, enjoy it.

It has to be a joke? Surely?

Would you try another book written by Abe Kass and R.S.W. or narrated by Wayne June?

Never would I give this author my time of day again

What was most disappointing about Abe Kass and R.S.W. ’s story?

It's patronising, it's ridiculous... If you act happy you'll be happy? If your sad because you have a low paying job, quit, go to school & get a better one, if something happens and it makes you sad, look for positives.
If it were that easy to beat depression we wouldn't be looking for help from an audiobook.
I'm disgusted

Would you be willing to try another one of Wayne June’s performances?

No

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?

Ridiculous

Good marketing, minimal content

Nothing new here except the marketing and repackaging of things you probably already know. Basic message: if you have clinical or "real" depression, get professional help. If you have "common" depression, change your thoughts and defeat it.

Reminds me of a "simple to build" balsa airplane I bought when I was a kid. After falling for the advertising on the box, I opened it to find instructions which said something like, "Begin by carving a fuselage from the large block of balsa wood to match this drawing." Needless to say, if I could have done that, I wouldn't have needed the kit.

If you read even a little bit of depression self help advice you won't need this kit either.

Odd but somewhat helpful

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is not a set of tips, but a set of subliminal recordings. It did seem to elevate my mood slightly for a brief period. Otherwise, like so many similar items, it just seems silly.

Helped me out so much!

Where does Defeat Depression rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book was just what I was needing and looking for.

What other book might you compare Defeat Depression to and why?

Not found one to compare to yet.
