Publisher's Summary

In this no-nonsense guide for men, psychologist Jonas Horwitz presents straightforward, jargon-free strategies to help you identify and overcome depression, once and for all.

The damned thing about severe depression is that it takes over your brain, body, and spirit. It wants you to say to yourself, "There is nothing I can do to make myself feel better. I am helpless in the face of my problems." Even at this very moment your severe depression is whispering in your ear, "This is all bulls@#t." Your depression has lived with you for a long time and has seldom left your side. It's relentlessly pessimistic and wants you to believe that your misery will never end. These are the lies your depression is wanting you believe.

With this unique guide, you'll learn why it's so important to take your severe depression seriously - just as you would if you had cancer, heart disease, diabetes, or any other life-threatening illness. In addition, by viewing your depression into a separate entity - The Beast - you'll discover how it tries to trick you when you are most stressed to do things that leave you feeling much more depressed.

You'll also learn how changing your behavior can actually change your brain chemistry. And, most importantly, you'll find actionable solutions to put The Beast in its place so you can start feeling better now!

In order to overcome your depression, you must understand its nature. This book will help you understand The Beast, stop feeding it, and take back your life.

Wonderful and practical guide

I am a therapist who works with men who are depressed. I just finished this book, and I would give out copies to my patients in a heartbeat. It’s that good.

Practical and informative

What a wonderful book. Not sure after listining that I actually have severe depression, but I felt encouraged to stop eating junk and go back to the gym instead. Feeling much better now. Kinda obivious, right? Not always. Not when you get caught up in bad habbits. Thanks, coach! Thanks for helping me but a label on my "beast."

Very Helpful

The methods for battling depression described in this book are quite helpful. I have struggled on and off with depression most of my adult life. I have used many of the methods in this book successfully in the past. The author does a good job of explaining how to implement them and why.
