How we feel physically and mentally can make or break us. Dr. Bob Rich understands this and has the experience and expertise to solicit his advice unto our eager ears. In his book, “From Depression to Contentment: a Self-Therapy Guide,” Dr. Rich digs into the topic of depression and helps the reader make sense of this debilitating issue. “From Depression to Contentment” lives up to its promise by being very thorough in explaining every way in which depression can take hold of your life, and then teaches the reader how to take back control of their life to ease their symptoms. Dr. Rich’s book is a self-help book, providing the necessary information for the reader to be able to apply it to their own life in order to live a happier, more fulfilling life.

Everything about depression that Dr. Rich says in his book makes sense, is informationally correct, and can be easily done by any reader, as long as they are willing to put forth the effort. Anything that needs fixing in our lives requires some work, and depression is far from the exception. I appreciate how he covers the expanse of influence that depression has on a person’s life, but then also provides solid and attainable goals to work toward.

I also appreciate the extra resources through websites and book suggestions to add to our knowledge on this subject. He writes with a mostly positive and personal tone so that the reader can’t help but feel that they are sitting in his office, receiving his expert help in person. I say “mostly” above because the reader will find some of his personal beliefs interspersed in the text that might not be a shared opinion among everyone.

“From Depression to Contentment: a Self-Therapy Guide,” by Dr. Bob Rich should be known and read by everyone to help reduce the number of cases of depression around the world.

ARE YOU RUGGED OR UNRUGGED?
According to Rugged Dude Carson (his real name): "This is the ultimate guide to bringing even a rugged dude or dudette in training all the way up to Rugged Certified status! Even if you live in a high rise building in the city, and drive a Toyota Prius, there is hope for you... Read this book and you'll be on your way to full ‘Ruggedtivityizationalizm.' Yes, that's a real word. Look it up!"

Rugged Dude credits inspiration for the book from "Doing my TV series Officially Rugged with RD for eight seasons and the many (thousands) of emails from people telling us their ideas of being rugged or unrugged. we got over that time. "

When asked how much of himself he could see in the rugged or un-rugged dilemmas, RD replied: "Safe to say that I do see myself in many of the scenarios in the book. Also, on many of my trips (for taping shows anywhere across Canada and the USA) there would be a couple or three other people with us. And, they too, would be perfect candidates for some of this ruggedtivity."

"I feel so much better--it's good to have my ruggedness affirmed by the experts. This book is a humorous look at the outdoors lifestyle that those of us that are rugged, enjoy. This collection of fun illustrations and ruggedisms will keep you turning the pages from cover to cover. Are you rugged? Take the test. And yes, I have fixed a hole in my canoe with duct tape."
--Mikel B. Classen, author of Lake Superior Tales, editor of U.P. Reader

"After a year in the bush hunting and fishing and not using any deodorant, a hungry bear picks up your trail. It gets a good whiff of you and goes the other way. Rugged?..... Thiis book is humorous and full of many 'Rugged' examples. A winner!"
--- Bob Hruska, Author of Humorous Hunting and Fishing Stories
