    "Let you "kind self" write you a letter"

    First, the book is by a British author and an American author might be unfamiliar with some terms like General Practitioner. Not a big deal and I don't think it will get in the way of understanding it.

    I don't see that this book does much in the way of helping a depressed person because I doubt they will follow much of its advice. Can you see yourself getting in touch with your "kind self" and writing yourself a reassuring letter to be read when you are depressed?

    My recommendation is to get a longer book and more comprehensive book than these overpriced, short "talks".

    The narrator is the author and does about as good a job as most authors... poorly. He stumbles over his own writing at times! He tried to talk in a very soothing tone. There are a couple of times where he will be talking about doing something for 30 seconds as a relaxation technique and there will be a 30 second break in the narration.

    "lots of good ideas"

    lots of good ideas concentrates on the buddhist practice of mindfulness. Have read it once but probably worth a re listen have the book in print and on audio

    "A good companion to the book"

    Some helpful tips and advice but everything is covered in the book really. None the less, something here could help you with your depression, it's about finding your own combination of what works for you.

    The book- if your in deep depression the book itself is a an awful lot to take in, not even a quarter the way through it I ended up with notes everywhere and stressing myself out even more. That's not to say it's bad, it's got all the right ideas but was overwhelming.
