Counter "Understanding Depression gives coherent form to modern sciences confused wisdom about the illness, and does so in an accessible, intelligent way." --Andrew Solomon, author of the National Book Award winner, The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression "I have been privileged to work and teach with Dr. DePaulo at Johns Hopkins for the past fifteen years. He is, without doubt, one of the best clinicians and clinical teachers I have ever known. His understanding of depression is deeply grounded in science, and his treatment approach is characterized by compassion, pragmatism, subtlety, and an obvious affection and respect for the many thousands of patients he has so effectively treated. None of us has a choice about becoming depressed. We do, however, have a choice about becoming informed about our illnesses. Understanding Depression is the best place to begin the process of becoming informed." -from the foreword by Kay Redfield Jamison, Ph.D., author of An Unquiet Mind and Touched with Fire "Understanding Depression answers all the questions the layman wants the answers to. Its a book people will refer to time and time again. This book was needed, and J. Raymond DePaulo and Leslie Alan Horvitz have done us all a tremendous service." -Art Buchwald "Whether you are a mental health professional, a person suffering from depression, or know someone who needs help, Understanding Depression is a one-stop, all-inclusive source that leaves no question unanswered. Hands down, its simply the best, most comprehensive book on depression Ive ever read. Dr. DePaulos book will become required reading for all my patients." -Joseph J. Luciani, Ph.D., author of Self-Coaching: How to Heal Anxiety and Depression
