A decade ago, with his breakaway best seller, Listening to Prozac, Peter Kramer revolutionized the way we think about antidepressants and the culture in which they are so widely used. Now, he returns with a profound and original look at the condition those medications treat, depression. He asks: If we could eradicate depression so that no human being ever suffered it again, would we?

Would you consider the audio edition of Against Depression to be better than the print version?

I wouldn't be able to judge. I was very happy with the audio edition. I have not seen the print one, although I have read another book, Listening to Prozac, in print form by the author. These are two separate genres and I do not like to compare them.

What did you like best about this story?

It wasn't a story, as it is a non-fiction book about depression.

Have you listened to any of Peter D. Kramer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Any additional comments?

This review is not applicable for a non-fiction book. I think you should review how you ask questions for a non-fiction listen.
