Publisher's Summary

In the past decade, depression rates have skyrocketed, and one in four Americans will suffer from major depression at some point in their lives. Where have we gone wrong? Dr. Stephen S. Ilardi sheds light on our current predicament and reminds us that our bodies were never designed for the sleep-deprived, poorly nourished, frenzied pace of 21st-century life.

Inspired by the extraordinary resilience of aboriginal groups like the Kaluli of Papua New Guinea, Dr. Ilardi prescribes an easy-to-follow, clinically proven program that harks back to what our bodies were originally made for and what they continue to need. The Depression Cure program has already delivered dramatic results, helping even those who have failed to respond to traditional medications.

    "A little repetitive"

    Good advice but there were a few times I thought it would have worked better in print. The summary at the end is a bit prescriptive for my tastes.

    Story
    "Excellent state of the art information"
    Would you listen to The Depression Cure again? Why?

    I was looking for the details on this particular approach to depression and the book provided it succinctly. It is a good reference source and as such I can see myself consulting it again


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is a non-fiction book describing a very specific approach to depression


    What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was adequate

    "Every Person Useful"

    I started to write this (the program) is just common sense. No put down intended. Many of the steps are obvious. However, often we need reminders, pointers to useful ideas to incorporate into our lives. The book lists six research supported steps to a fuller life whether depressed or not.
