Undercurrents: A Therapists Reckoning With Her Own Depression
Martha Manning is an exceptionally honest, courageous, & funny diarist whose record of her own experience of severe depression never descends into self-pity. When psychotherapy & antidepressants had failed to cure her, she was finally given ECT. Many regard ECT as barbaric, but this book may convince some that it still has a place in the treatment of severe depression. Both patients & therapists will learn a lot from reading this unique personal account of what it is like to suffer from a depressive illness.

I don't often read memoirs, and this one has a few problems similar to others (e.g., stories that don't directly relate to the central narrative, too many characters to keep straight). However, it offers a personal and excellent view into the mind of someone severely depressed. It can certainly help people understand how to treat and act around a depressed person, and I imagine it can help give hope to depressed people by showing how she lived through it.
Review: Undercurrents: A Life Beneath the SurfaceUser Review - Goodreads
A friend recommended this book to help me understand what was going on with depression in her own family and why they were seriously considering electro-shock therapy. As a person who knew nothing positive about it, this was such a helpful read.
