    I grew up on Golden Age Radio, and while I love to read, I typically consume more books via audio thanks to a job that lets me listen while I work. As an aspiring writer, I try to read a great deal of non-fiction in addition to a variety of fictional genres. I especially love history, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and old-style gothic horror.

    "A Life Saver"

    I've been dealing with various levels of depression for most of my years. Over those years, I'd find temporary relief through various activities (books, music, art, etc.), but sooner or later you get to a place where you know temporary just isn't good enough as the situation continues to get worse. But where do you turn when modern medicine would rather dope you up than to help you cope?

    This audiobook is quite possibly the means through which I can not only save my life, but to actually enrich it on a level I once thought was denied to me. Dr. Gordon approaches this entire situation through the lens of someone who has gone through it himself and has helped thousands of others through it all over the world, in many walks of life. He explains that most doctors write those prescriptions because they're scared to deal with what the patient is dealing with. But most importantly, he makes you realize as you begin this journey... you're not alone, which is invaluable in the quest to overcome.

    Dr. Gordon explains depression in plain, non-judgmental language, and he goes through each level of it as someone might guide a person down a dark road with a lantern. There are a number of causes of depression, which he walks through, and there are a number of means for helping to push through and past it. As I listened, I found many of these ideas resonating with me, including concepts I found to be previously repugnant. If you're open to the material, this is an excellent starting point to opening up a new world.

    As with any book of this kind, the trick is to actually apply what is learned, and for that reason I'm not only doing that, but I intend to revisit this book every so often so as to reinforce the foundations. I'd recommend the same of anyone one going through this, and I'd recommend those in your immediate circle do so as well. If nothing else, it's another tool in the tool belt to work with.
