In the traumatized world we live in, books on depression, anxiety, fear and anger abound. Many of these books are very general and do not offer new insights. What distinguishes Howard Stone's work from these, is the fact that it speaks to the person who is experiencing depression, as well as to the sufferer's network of family members and friends. This book examines depression from what it is to how to deal with it. While it is recommended to the scientific reader, counselor and pastor, it is still accessible and practical enough to be of benefit to anyone who wants to know more about this topic. Even the Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS), included as Appendix A (p 235), is accessible enough for everyone to gaug his / her own state of depression.
