'I thought I knew a lot about depression, but despite having treated people for it - and suffered from it myself - I learned more as I read [How to Tell Depression to Piss Off] from cover to cover. James has written a book about depression that gives you hope tempered with realism and shot through with wonderful anarchic humour. He knows exactly what it is like to 'feel too much'. He is refreshingly rude about the prissy crap written by many who do not understand depression or who have never experienced it. Yes, depression is a pernicious bugger and it's fine to shout and swear at it. And if all else fails, follow James's advice and get a cat'
