Publisher's Summary

Depression is physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually harmful. Break free from depression and attain happiness. Use "yourself" as an antidepressant. Treat "common depression", a strong and persistent sadness to undesired circumstances, by changing the way you react to events in your life. Discover what keeps you depressed and acquire practical tools to defeat it. This program will give you the "push" to pick yourself up and leave depression behind. "Clinical depression" will likely require additional therapies. You were born to feel happy and content! With this outstanding program you can increase the likelihood that you can achieve your full potential for feeling good.

Our Wisdom Scientific Self-therapy audio programs are not "audiobooks", "lectures", collections of "positive affirmations", or like anything you have used before. These programs are deliberately designed to be repetitive. Do not expect them to entertain. Do expect them to up-grade your quality of life, making you happier and your relationships more successful. We have developed what we believe to be the most effective audio programs ever made to help you develop a healthy mental attitude and master the practical skills necessary for success. We know they work well, many people have told us so. Each program is easy and simple: listen for eight minutes a day for about three weeks and directly apply what you learn. People have told us that using Wisdom Scientific Self-therapy audio programs they have learned to stay calm and improve their health, increase their happiness, and strengthened their relationships. We believe you can do likewise. Try it. You have nothing to lose except some unwanted sadness!

    "Good marketing, minimal content"

    Nothing new here except the marketing and repackaging of things you probably already know. Basic message: if you have clinical or "real" depression, get professional help. If you have "common" depression, change your thoughts and defeat it.

    Reminds me of a "simple to build" balsa airplane I bought when I was a kid. After falling for the advertising on the box, I opened it to find instructions which said something like, "Begin by carving a fuselage from the large block of balsa wood to match this drawing." Needless to say, if I could have done that, I wouldn't have needed the kit.

    If you read even a little bit of depression self help advice you won't need this kit either.

    "Odd but somewhat helpful"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is not a set of tips, but a set of subliminal recordings. It did seem to elevate my mood slightly for a brief period. Otherwise, like so many similar items, it just seems silly.

    "Helped me out so much!"
    Where does Defeat Depression rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was just what I was needing and looking for.


    What other book might you compare Defeat Depression to and why?

    Not found one to compare to yet.

    "It has to be a joke? Surely?"
    Would you try another book written by Abe Kass and R.S.W. or narrated by Wayne June?

    Never would I give this author my time of day again


    What was most disappointing about Abe Kass and R.S.W. ’s story?

    It's patronising, it's ridiculous... If you act happy you'll be happy? If your sad because you have a low paying job, quit, go to school & get a better one, if something happens and it makes you sad, look for positives.
    If it were that easy to beat depression we wouldn't be looking for help from an audiobook.
    I'm disgusted


    Would you be willing to try another one of Wayne June’s performances?

    No


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Ridiculous
