Winter is a horrible time of year for people who suffer from depression, which makes it the perfect time of year for Therese Borchard's new book: Beyond Blue: Surviving Depression & Anxiety and Making the Most of Bad Genes
Here are some reviews that have come out for this book:
“Borchard’s gift and distinction is her humor, the golden rope out of the pit of despair and a tool for transforming hysteria into hysterical laughter .... the author’s desire to help is boundless. This self-help memoir offers hope, particularly for those with intractable depression. Even better, it offers levity.” --Publishers Weekly
“Not every book about depression makes you laugh out loud, but Therese Borchard manages to be both funny and searingly honest. Think Kay Redfield Jamison laced with Anne Lamott.” --Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project
“It’s a clinician’s dream to recommend a resource with such honest and accessible wisdom, research, and guidance from someone who has endured depression firsthand. BEYOND BLUE is the most even-handed account of overcoming depression through psychological and spiritual resources I’ve ever seen.” --Ryan Howes, PhD, licensed clinical psychologist and author of the “In Therapy” blog for Psychology Today.
“Therese is a saint in pursuit of of a masterpiece, and BEYOND BLUE is Exhibit A.” --John McManamy, author of Living Well with Depression and Bipolar Disorder
“BEYOND BLUE is a revelation, big-minded and big-hearted, full of succor, concrete advice, and inspiration.” --Joshua Wolf Shenk, author of Lincoln’s Melancholy
