Publisher's Summary

Kevin Breel burst into the public's awareness when at 19 his TED talk became a worldwide phenomenon. Through the lens of his own near suicide, he shared his profoundly vulnerable story of being young, male, and depressed in a culture that has no place for that. Boy Meets Depression is a book that explores what it means to struggle and tells an honest, heartfelt story about how a meaningful life isn't found in perfection; it's found in our ability to heal and accept the dark parts of ourselves.

Critic Reviews

"Kevin Breel has single-handedly demystified depression through his shockingly honest, first-hand account of the struggle. This is an absolute must-read." (Josh Shipp, the Teen Whisperer, TV personality and author)

Great story!

I listened to the Ted talk, then bought the audiobook. It's a great story about someone who struggles with depression as a young kid. It's hard to listen to some of the parts, not because it's poorly written, but because he really does struggle. It's worth the time to read or listen to. I recommend it.
