The last book I read about depression was called Depression is a Liar, by Danny Baker.
This book made me cry. I related to SO MUCH OF IT, it was a total eye opener. He is a truly inspirational man and I will never forget his book.https://www.amazon.co.uk/Depression-Lia ... B00FYXAXZU
Other books I've read include:
The Other Side of Silence: A Psychiatrist's Memoir of Depression (By Linda Gask)
Sunbathing in the Rain: A Cheerful Book About Depression (By Gywneth Lewis) (To be honest, I found this really, really hard to get into. I think it was because of the sporadic poetry and random bits that didn't really make sense to me.)
Overcoming Depression and Low Mood, 3rd Edition: A Five Areas Approach (by Christopher Williams). (I started to work through this but unfortunately lack of motivation/energy has prevented me from continuing. I'm hopeful that one day I'll be able to pick it back up and continue, as there are some good ideas/points in there.)
Depression: The Way Out of Your Prison (By Dorothy Rowe). (I want to warn you, the way this lady writes and the ideas that she has are quite harsh. She has a very conventational tone and she is very dismissive of the idea that depression is an illness - instead she believes that it is actually a coping mechanism and is projected from our own self-esteem/beliefs about our surroundings. At times, I found myself becoming very frustrated with the way she puts her thoughts across.)
