Review:

"Having battled chronic depression for almost thirty years ... I urge those who have depression, and the families and friends of those who suffer from it, to read this compelling book." --Tom Johnson, former Publisher and CEO, Los Angeles Times, former Chairman and CEO, Cable News Network (CNN)

"Captivating, riveting, and inspirational! Five stars for one of the best books I have read in a long time." --Debra Rosen, President/CEO San Diego North Chamber of Commerce and Founder of San Diego Women's Week

"Hooray for Tanya for her courage to expose (depression) for what it is and for her effort to encourage others to shed the fear of weakness and seek help earlier rather than later." --Tony Dow, Actor, Director, Producer and Sculptor

"This book is a testimony to the power of love, grace, redemption, and new dreams - no matter how dark the past, how great the pain, and no matter what others have done to us." --Casey Gwinn, Esq., President, National Family Justice Center Alliance

"Tanya takes readers on a healing journey with a straightforward and brave account of the chaos that was her life. A must read!" --Eric Hipple, former NFL quarterback, author of "Real Men Do Cry," and Outreach Coordinator at the University of Michigan Depression Center

"Now a life coach, motivational speaker, and advocate for victims of mental illness, Tanya's story is a journey from post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic growth ... Tanya's story and tools provide understanding, hope, and help for survivors everywhere." --Melanie Greenberg, Ph.D., Clinical psychologist, National speaker, and Author of the bestselling "Mindful Self-Express" blog at Psychologytoday.com

"Tanya Brown's story is one of inner conflict, overcoming adversity, and finally of victory. It exposes, for all to see, the effects of depression as something real and debilitating, even life-threatening. For those who have suffered from depression, this is a means of gaining understanding and a guide to fighting back and regaining control. Bold, honest, realistic, relevant, and inspirational; Tanya has done an excellent job of bringing the disease, its consequences, and its treatment to life." --5-star review by Bil Howard, Readers' Favorite Book Reviews
