Inside the self or deep other peoples horrendous depressionss somehow self
indulgent as I saw one reviewer write of course many people could as I saw one reviewer write And of course many people could believe he was devoting years to writing about this topic though Sweet Liberty in private hundreds of people opened up to supply him withncredible accounts of their experiences despite the societal discomfort with the whole subject One of his colleagues even denied that he suffered from depression because he had such an obviously good life Yeh right hands down the best nonfiction book Smack i ve ever read the noonday demons exhaustive Night of the Living Dead Christian ints examination of depression and Mental Illness Weaving The Author illness weaving the author and others experiences with major depressive breakdown with rigorous research on scientific anthropological evolutionary political artistic and historical perspectives on the emotiondiseasesolomon engages difficult philosophical uestions like whether the blunting of depression by SSRIs The

liberty or an action to be prevented at all costs and how we might best address mentalllness from a public health perspective The Big Snuggle-Up including why we don t treatt preventatively as we do some other diseasessolomon s brutal honesty about his own breakdowns and some of the shocking actions he took Too Close for Comfort (Jo Birmingham in often misguided attempts to mitigate thems

social withdrawal being one ofts primary symptomswritten over five years Happiness the Mindful Way including the author s third of three breakdowns the noonday demons not only extremely Gorilla, Monkey Ape informative but deeply elegant as a work of prose using brilliant analogies literary uotations and an overarching tenor of compassion to explore depression with exceptional nuance everyone should read this book After slogging through a large chunk of The Noonday Demon I ve come to accept I just can t seet through to the end This book s lethal alternately depressing readers boring readers and making readers roll their eyes so hard they pop out of their headsFirst depression on any level mild or major brief or chronic s a painful crippling ailment Anyone who pulls themselves up and fights automatically earns a bit of my respect I know how hard the attack The Dig is and how hopelesst can seemToo bad Solomon s battle resulted The Bully in this book Self absorptions a trademark of the genre I expect that But self absorption The Regiment is different from and tolerable than self pity and Solomon s writings solidly wallowing The Kingdom (Fargo Adventure, in self pity whenever he s talking about himself And try be a little grateful sir for your good fortune to be bornnto privilege Most of us weren t so damned lucky Even the self absorbed know when they ve been handed a giftA lot of the science studies and numbers discussed Johnny Came Home in The Noonday Demon are extremely outdated Solomon used the bestnformation he had at the time but The Lonely Londoners if you want up to datenformation of that sort look elsewhereWhile there s nothing wrong with exploring alternative medicine there s uite a bit of pseudo science bullshit presented here mixed The Complete Idiots Guide to Raising Chickens in with actual facts jumbled togethern a way that could be downright dangerous Very concerningAnd beyond all of this So much of The Noonday Demon The Complete Idiots Guide to Finance for Small Business is dry and downright boring The few engaging passages are nice but a reader has to manage to stay awake first and even then there s a sense that many of his personal anecdotes are told simply to be shocking very muchn the Look how fucked up I was Be amazed category Maybe that works for some readers but I m not one of themI ve learned many things from my own battle with major depression one of which His Guarded Heart is appreciating the time I have to experience life That s why I m putting Solomon s work to the side life s too short to wastet on finishing books like this This was a good book but I found t scholarly less readable and harder to get through than similar books such as Peter Whybrow s A Mood Apart and Lewis Wolpert s Malignant Sadness Perhaps this s because Solomon cites a lot of philosophers He has extensive notes but the book The Goodness of Dogs itselfsn t footnoted you have to go to the back and sort of guess what bits Everybody Matters in each chapter the notes are referring to That s frustrating I do however think this books valuable particularly the chapter on The Slaughter illicit drugs and depression unlike most people Solomon doesn t justssue a blanket don t do Three Mothers, Three Daughters it on substances but analyzes each one and what they can and can t do for depression and his chapter on depression and poor people If theres anything we ve learned Three by Atiq Rahimi in the addiction field says Herbert Klebert s that once you get addicted Magical Garden 2018 Calendar: Coloring Meditations Inspired by Nature it doesn t matter how you got there you have a disease with a life ofts own If you treat a depressed alcoholic with an antidepressant you produce a non depressed alcoholic Taking away the original motivation for abusing substances does not free someone who has developed a pattern of substance abuseThe Noonday Demon by Andrew Solomon won the 2001 National Book Award for Non Fiction. Stintos grupos sociales en todo el mundo y a lo largo de la historia Solomon demuestra una sinceridad una nteligencia y una erudición extraordinarias a lo largo de este viaje al más oscuro de los secretos familiares Su contribución a nuestra comprensión de la enfermedad mental y también de la condición humana es asombro. .
