Beschreibung

In his landmark bestseller Listening to Prozac, Peter Kramer revolutionized the way we think about antidepressants and the culture in which they are so widely used. Now Kramer offers a frank and unflinching look at the condition those medications treat: depression. Definitively refuting our notions of "heroic melancholy," he walks readers through groundbreaking new research-studies that confirm depression's status as a devastating disease and suggest pathways toward resilience. Thought-provoking and enlightening, Against Depression provides a bold revision of our understanding of mood disorder and promises hope to the millions who suffer from it.

Pressestimmen

"An eloquent, absorbing book." -The New York Times Book Review
"Deeply felt... [Kramer's] book is a polemic against a society that accepts depression as a fact of life." -O, The Oprah Magazine

"Kramer makes an eloquent case for considering depression a disease... Captivating, convincing and thorough." -San Francisco Chronicle

In Against Depression, Peter Kramer opens our eyes once again to a fresh, important and humane understanding of the human condition. His bold rethinking of the condition we call 'depression' gives us a clear-eyed scenario for freedom from the grip of this soul-searing disorder." -Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

"There is nothing romantic in the suffering of depression. Kramer shows us the horrific reality of the illness, dispelling myths that pervade popular culture. This book should usher in an era when the disordered chemistry of the brain is viewed with the same concern and care that mark the treatment of any malady." -Jerome Groopman, Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School

"Here one of our most thoughtful psychiatrists attends a wide-spread psychological malady-the bouts of melancholy that afflict so many individuals, laying them low in mind and spirit. This book offers much critical wisdom, even as it is written with a grace and sensitivity that will endear its words to the reader." -Robert Coles, Professor of Psychiatry and Medical Humanities, Harvard Medical School

"Our treasured sense of self is often challenged by neuroscience-how do you wedge 'Self' in among neurons and synapses and neurotransmitters? No one has written about these issues in a more sensitive, thought-provoking and accessible way, and has touched more people in the process, than Peter Kramer." -Robert Sapolsky, Professor of Biological Sciences, Stanford University
