Amazon Readers Rating: DEPRESSION PILLS

Review By: Claire (Sleepydust Editor) and an Amazon reader

This is one of my favourite books on personal development.

I read this when I was having a particularly bad time with depression (a common symptom of CFS and FMS) a few years ago.

It really made sense to me, and set me on the road to understanding myself that little bit better. And that’s why I have no doubts in recommending this book to you now.

Remember 'Toad of Toad Hall' from 'Wind In The Willows'? That classic children's book?

Well this book follows 'Toad' as he attends therapy sessions with his therapist (the 'Heron') and battles with his depression.

Sounds really basic, but it's actually a really cool way to get to grips with the basics of counselling and how you cope the way you do...

If you're like me, you might be wondering if it's linked to the original 'Wind In the Willows' book in anyway.

The answer to that is no - different author - different topic - different... everything!...

... apart from the fact that the author uses Toad as his main character...

And it's not a fiction book - it is most definitely a non-fiction book based on personal development/self-help.

So, if you’re suffering from depression, or just want to learn more about yourself, then I really recommend this book.

Here’s what an Amazon reader has to say about the book:

“This is a great book for readers who wonder why they always seem to react to stuff in the same way and want to change it for the better.

It introduces, in a simple and easy to understand way, some basic concepts about the different psychological states that exist in our heads and how they affect our daily living and our actions and interactions with others.

It also starts to show you that by recognising why you react the way you do, you can change the way you behave for the better Easy to read and understand and of great help!”
