Review: Darkness Visible

User Review  - Jeri - Goodreads

This was not an easy read, but I needed to read it. The author, a talented writer, describes his experience with depression. It was very wordy, but the concepts he discusses were insightful. Read full review

An interesting insight to crippling depression and the literary connections made it an even more compelling read. I read it cover to cover in one sitting. I had no idea Abraham Lincoln had such a sad life. Read full review

The finest book you could possibly read about chronic depression. Not even someone who is chronically depressed can describe it; the best way to overcome it is by having persons--who can relate--talk with you: who can help you. I give this book five stars. Read full review

User Review  - Charles - Goodreads

I had heard this was a very personal, in-depth look at depression and it was certainly all that AND a bag of chips!
