I know there are polarizing opinions regarding the validity of Dr. Amen's work, which is understandable. I myself am on the fence as to whether his brain imaging technology is truly the real deal, or a money making gimmick. He utilizes the example of a young person that they found a brain tumor in, and describes the fact that he had to have a total of 15 surgeries by the time he was like 18 years old! I might be incorrect about the numbers on that, but regardless. How is that many surgeries beneficial to a person that young?? No wonder they had a hard time trying to find a surgeon willing to perform the initial operation. It was a horrible example of a brain imaging "success" story.

But anyways, I did give the book 5 stars, because regardless of your feelings on the brain imaging techniques, and despite the dismal example of a "success" story, it is inarguable that the book not only describes in detail, very real forms of depression/anxiety and how they can be managed. I am by no means a clinical psychologist, but I do have a master's degree in psychology, and have been a long time sufferer of minor depression and anxiety. I can tell you that depression and/or anxiety is not "one size fits all" and Dr. Amen does an excellent job in his book of detailing the different types. He writes in a vernacular that the general public can comprehend without a medical degree. He also goes on to provide management tips for the different types, including dietary changes, activity habits, etc. I love that Dr. Amen's motto is "skills not just pills" because too many sufferers of mental illness rely too heavily on pills, which is realistically the equivalent of putting a bandaid on a bullet wound. Life skills and coping strategies must be implemented in addition to any medications, and Dr. Amen stresses this in his book.

I also like that Dr. Amen provides additional insight as to what substances the different types have a tendency to become addicted to, and behaviors to look out for. I read the entire thing cover to cover, and I feel like if nothing else, it's just such a good reference for anyone struggling to understand their emotional instability or mental illness. If someone is uninterested at first in seeking medication, there are some great tips in here for changes that can be made as a first step towards improvement. A very informative guidebook for both sufferers of such issues, and well as students and professionals in the field. Highly recommend.

A relative who is dealing with depression recommended this. I got it primarily for the suggestions on natural supplements. However, there is much more in this book than that one chapter.

This included a self analysis test to narrow down each person's anxiety or depressive issues. I think it was pretty accurate. I especially appreciated the "other" section of the test -- that was where you have some "other" person take it with you, providing their opinion of how you rank in the various catagories. This form of "double check" increased my confidence in the results (my wife was my 'other,' and her answers almost completely agreed with mine, however, several times she did rate my issues as being more serious, probably because she is more objective than I was willing to be).

Anyway, I'm not sure I understand all the science in some parts of the book, but I think it's definitely worth taking a look at.

Practical, stigma reducing book that explains the biology behind some mental illness. He stresses the importance of the CORRECT medicine, not just any medicine to help out with severe cases. He also stresses that lifestyle changes are as important as the medicine as with any other illness and shows how to implement those changes. There is controversy regarding how accurate SPECT studies are, but I feel they are promising and should be looked into by the neurological community

This will explain the different types of depression and the probable cause of the disorder. This book goes into a lot of detail and at times gives too may examples of individual's symptoms and treatment processes. But it is easy to skip sections of the book and read the ones that interest you most. You and always go back to other sections later. Amen does go into ways of dealing with anxiety and depression (kind of self help) as well as explaining what the professionals are trying to do with drugs and other treatment programs.

From the minitests to the nutritional/med info, this book is fabulous. At the time, we were trying to help my spouse who was not yet diagnosed with clinical depression. Reading this, I pushed him to get help. After the Amen Clinic diagnosed him, this let me eval the meds they put him on. While he was clinically depressed and behaved in ways wanting everyone around him to be as depressed as he was, it helped the rest of us to assess how we were doing. If you are around anyone with major depression, you know you have to take care of yourself so they don't, as they drown, also drown you. This book gave us the info that let us confidently take steps to move forward. It is just an awesome book!

This book is useful if you were going to go to one of their centers that can scan your brain to see what the chemicals are doing in your brain. If you are not going to one of their institutions and granted that there isn't one in every state in the US, then this book may not be worth it for you. There is a section in the back of the book that gives you ideas that you can treat your depression naturally, but they are just examples of vitamins or homeopathic ways, but not really a solution of what to do far as a plan of action.

I knew there had to be more out there than just taking a SSRI and the world would be good. Just goes to prove that all brains aren't created equal. By reading and studying this book, I have seen me and others I know in this book in various parts. I have seen my brother in this book, people have discarded him and said he didn't want to change, had no will power, etc. This book, which I sent to him also, has given him hope that there is "healing" to be had for his issues.
