First off, I should never have said "Atlas of depression is the Ultimate book" I know better than to make those kind of "factual statements" on something that is an opinion. And I'm a little embarassed.
Additionally don't think this is anything other than a sincere enquiry of your opinion.
If you read the book and didn't really appreciate it I'm not going to write back telling you why you should. (its a personal pet peeve)

I consider myself a real cynic when it comes to books on depression,or most things actually.
Did you read Andrew Solomons book and still
remain unimpressed.
After a slew of "inner child, heal your mood, eat your way to mental health, toxic psychiatry, books or readable but reductive anecdotal books. I thought this one was truly remarkable, and I really apreciated that the author states first off that "no book can span the suffering of people with depression". If the book left you cold it at least its acknowledged!.

I found his personal,historical,scientific, and cultural references and vivid descriptions stunning. But was most impressed by his scrupulous investigation of sources and balanced approach.

I'm just curious, not saying YOU HAVE TO READ IT It will change your life. Because we know, (well I should speak for myself) I know that external "things" don't make a dent when I'm in that indescribable(SP?) horror.
And God knows most of us have tried everything money allows.
I swear if I hear one more person recommend more Vitamin B or spew another version of
"I saw this guy on Oprah with no arms no legs skin cancer and cerebral palsy and he's happier than you are....I will become homicidal rather than suicidal. Gabbi
