10th Anniversary Depression Ebook Sale

Recovery from Depression EbookTen years have passed since I started writing Storied Mind, and I’d like to celebrate by offering a depression ebook sale. Starting on Saturday, March 25th, both Surviving Depression Together and A Mind for Life will be selling for $2.99 each.

Surviving Depression TogetherAs you probably know, I stopped adding new material to Storied Mind a couple of years ago, but, surprisingly, readership has increased in that time. Hundreds of people have added their personal stories to the comments, as the community of readers has continued to deepen their involvement. We have also sold thousands of ebooks, and I’m planning to release a long-delayed third one, tentatively called Depression Present Tense, by the end of this year.

This has been a life-changing decade for me in many ways, and I hope these ebooks can bring some light to people dealing with depression.

Thank you for helping to make this a useful resource.

    Dear John, I just recently found this website. Thank you so much. I do not have adequate words to describe how helpful it has been for me. Your writing is superb and incomparable to anything else I have read. Bless you for helping me to not feel so devastatingly alone.

    Hi, I’m 63% through your book. I really want to say, it is such good writing. Philosophy is a slippery subject with so many versions it can hard to keep the explanation clear. I am so impressed by the clarity of this thesis. I’m really enjoying its form and as a result I’m absorbing the story and appreciating the road you are cutting, the signposts you are erecting. Thanks and once again congratulations on such a concise piece of work. Liam, Dublin, Ireland.

    Hey John, I’ve just been reading your blog. I noticed that you stopped adding to it. I wondered if that’s because depression is not on your mind so much now? Your last blogs talked about ACT. Has it been that the acceptance of your experience has enabled you to love without being controlled by depression?

    Hi John, i just discovered your website. I can’t tell you how many books I’ve bought over the years on depression. Get a flicker of hope after reading o a recommended book. Just to get it, read it, and again wasted money. I’m not totalling giving up on it, but I’m sure like many others i don’t work and have much money to just live on. There are millions of books out there, how do i know the ones you advice are really gonna be any different. In as, any real help.

      Hi, Mandy –
      I sympathize. Books alone are not enough. I’ve gotten many helpful insights about how others have dealt with depression, about the variety of therapies out there, the helpfulness of meditation, what medications can and cannot do – but those insights only work when I’ve been able to integrate them with my own treatment. Depression, I think, is a combination of conditions, and each symptom has to be dealt with in its own way. It’s really an endless process, and there simply is no single cure. Even with psychiatrists, it’s pretty much trial and error. We just have to keep struggling along. All I can say is that each of the books I’ve recommended on the blog have helped me in some way. I wish you well.
