Editorial Reviews

Charles Remmington for Readers' Favorites ***** As a layman, I was astonished by how accessible I found this book to be, and as I am not suffering from depression I was also surprised at how useful I found it.'Melissa Tanaka for Readers' Favorite ***** 'Manning maintains an easily understandable approach on the subject that prevents readers from becoming overwhelmed with an influx of information.'Faridah Nassozi for Readers' Favorite ***** 'an ideal read for people struggling with depression and those seeking to understand and manage it.'Arya Fomonyuy for Readers' Favorite ***** 'Starting from the way the mind works, the author leads the reader to powerful truths about depression and its symptoms and how to handle them. Readers will understand why what they have been doing to combat depression doesn't work. They will understand the way their "Black Dog" operates, and create the best strategy to combat stress, keep depression at bay, allay their fears, and regain emotional health and freedom.'Alyssa Elmore for Readers' Favorite ***** 'This book is written in easy-to-understand terms. With helpful pictures, links to informative videos, and worksheets, this book is more of a course than a self-help book.'Henry Baum for SPR **** 'There are many books about depression from the perspective of psychologist or patient, but Manning's book stands out for being both authoritative and heartfelt.'
