Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
The award-winning author of A Stone Boat offers a deeply personal look at depression in which he draws on his own battle with the illness and interviews with fellow sufferers, researchers, doctors, and others to assess the vast complexities of the disease, its causes and symptoms, available therapies, and impact on society.
"Although his descriptions of depression itself are compellingly vivid and unflinching, there is a lack of telling detail in the accounts of other aspects of his life."
Roy Porter, Literary Review, June 2001Review:
"[T]his book is more than a string of wrenching personal anecdotes. Particularly valuable are sections devoted to treatment and history, which tear to shreds the assumption that depression is a curable affliction of the modern-day middle class."
Karen Valby, Entertainment Weekly, Summer 2001
