About this title


Challenging long-standing beliefs about ECT, or electroconvulsive therapy, the wife of former Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis describes how the technique helped her to overcome her more than twenty-year struggle with depression, compares ECT to anti-depressants and psychotherapy, and shares practical guidelines for pursuing ECT as an option.

About the Author:

Kitty Dukakis, the wife of former Massachusetts governor and 1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis, is a well-known and much-loved public figure. She revealed her ongoing struggle to overcome depression and her accompanying addictions to alcohol and pills in her 1990 memoir, Now You Know.

The author of three previous books, he has taught journalism at Boston University, Northeastern, Tufts, and Harvard, and now runs a Boston-based fellowship program for medical journalists.
