Description - Speaking of Sadness by David A. Karp

Speaking of Sadness explores depression as a human experience, not just as a disease. Each of the pieces of the depression puzzle is examined, including interactions with family and friends, experiences with anti-depressant drugs, and the interplay of biology, family and society in depression's definition and treatment. The book includes extensive interviews with depressed individuals and the author's own experiences with depression.
