Meh. I am 2/3 through the book. I tend to agree with many of the authors positions... However I paid decent money for this book and to be honest it is increasingly feeling like a sales pitch for the other related "services" offered by the company.

I couldn't wholeheartedly recommend this book as there are certainly better ones available without the push factor.

Any book on depression is enticing the vulnerable. This book suggests an alternative approach that in itself appeals to the desperate. Depression is a complex disorder that ranges from genetic variation in neurotransmitters, psychological trauma, to a loss of meaning and purpose. The balanced and professional use of drugs, EMT, and various forms of psycho and cognitive therapies should be ascertained from a physician or certified clinical psychologist. Some of the techniques could be dangerous if done without supervision and have been utilized by cults. An interesting book that should be followed with caution and expert supervision but not necessarily taken at face value.

I was going through a mild depression: new in North America, family and friends left behind, 1st time mother, etc.... When I started to have bad thoughts about ending my life, I thought it was time to make a change. With St John's wort (herbal medicine), this book helped me a lot, not so much with the techniques described, but especially with the support it gave me: I was not alone and that helped me more than anything. I was not weak or sick, I was just tired and we all are at some point. If you need help, this book will give you all the keys for a better tomorrow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely a wonderful book - positive, directing and alive Jan. 17 2010
By Barbara Steers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Upon recommendation by a friend who is a physician, I ordered UNSTUCK. A very lively read and fun!!! My spouse read it afterwards and agreed. Not only does this book offer fundamentally sound background, it offers unique drills to push you out of your moods. Also had the opportunity to attend a talk given by Dr. Gordon who demonstrated some of his unique techniques. A lovely man who genuinely cares for his patients and for people in general.
This is a book for teens, too. I highly recommend UNSTUCK.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Helpful Book On Depression I've Ever Read Aug. 19 2008
By Deborah A. Broeker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Having suffered from chronic depression for most of my adult life, I admit that I began reading this book with some doubt and trepidation. I have read many books on depression, including Peter Kramer's books and many others. I have been on several anti-depressants over the years, but found something lacking eventually with all of them. I have also tried counseling - got alot of insights, but still didn't feel quite right. Dr. Gordon's book hooked me from the very beginning...he has a very calm and considered approach to depression, and began the book with his very own experience with depression while in medical school. Finally - a psychiatrist who will admit that he too has suffered from this hideous malady!

Each chapter provides many meaningful and common-sense approaches to helping oneself through depressive episodes. I don't think Dr. Gordon is so much "anti-drug" as he is against what he perceives as the overuse and over-prescribing of these drugs as a panacea for all mood problems and negative life experiences, such as divorce or death of loved ones. I have already seen the value of some of his wonderful suggestions, especially the use of exercise and meditation in fighting depressive feelings and hopelessness. There is also a glossary at the back of the book with a list of numerous resources for the reader to use in trying to find support during down periods.

Thank you, Dr. Gordon, for providing this excellent book for those of us who know that the answer to our angst does not necessarily lie in a medicine bottle, but in also actively finding the resources and support to help heal ourselves.
