The Depths by Jonathan Rottenberg
Drawing on recent developments in the science of mood--and his own harrowing depressive experience as a young adult--Rottenberg explains depression in evolutionary terms, showing how its dark pull arises from adaptations that evolved to help our ancestors ensure their survival. The Depths offers a bold new account of why depression endures--and makes a strong case for de-stigmatizing this increasingly common condition. In so doing, Rottenberg offers hope in the form of his own and other patients recovery, and points the way towards new paths for treatment.
