Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression is the follow-up to the best-selling F**K Anxiety. In this book I take the information, tips, and insights that I have gained as a psychologist and translate them into language that doesn't suck. This is the self-help book for people who don't usually like self-help books.
In Hardcore Self Help: F**K Depression, I talk to you like a friend. That means I speak directly to you, without psychobabble. Instead I tell you why your brain is such a troll. I explain why you have literally no energy or motivation. I tell you why people are so terrible at offering help. Best of all, I tell you how to take realistic steps toward solving these and many other issues caused by depression.

This book is very straightforward. It has no annoying euphemisms. It's a book about depression that actually communicates it's ideas in a form palatable to cynical minds. Very well read by the author, it doesn't even sound like a reading most of the time. The information is honest, useful and even motivating. The author spends a deal of time trying to connect with the listener, and it goes a little ways toward breaking down some walls you may have about these kinds of books. I generally find self help books unbearably disingenuous or unrealistically optimistic. I didn't get any of that from this. If you are dealing with depression this is worth a listen.
Guy knocked it out of the park. Could have been in the room with me giving some honest advice.
The 'Hardcore' title is a bit extreme, at first glance of the title you may get the idea that the book is attempting to be edgy, but that's not really the case at all. I would only consider it hardcore in comparison to other, more 'flowery' self help books. There is some language the incredibly innocent might find offensive, but really nothing bad to most people, probably.
I found this book very helpful and enjoyed the gritty letting it all hang out language as well, It helps punctuate the pain and frustration that comes with dealing with depression.
I really enjoyed the audio book. The author made me LOL at times and gave depression a face (I can punch).
"You'll benefit from this"
This is such a good listen. You'll take so much away from it, yes it didn't fix me straight away but I had lots of armour to help me with my battle.
"Slaying the Dragon"
If you or a significant other suffers from depression you should find this book useful - I did :)
