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.

Product Details

Featuring more than 150 color photos of the U.P.'s most beautiful, historic, and natural locations!

I've spent many years exploring the wilderness of Michigan's Upper Peninsula (U.P.), and one thing has become apparent: no matter what part in which you find yourself, fascinating sights are around every corner. There are parks, wilderness areas and museums. There are ghost towns and places named after legends. There are trails to be walked and waterways to be paddled. In the U.P., life is meant to be lived to the fullest. In this book, I've listed 40 destinations from every corner of the U.P. that have places of interest. Some reflect rich history, while others highlight the natural wonders that abound. So, join in the adventures. The Upper Peninsula is an open book--the one that's in your hand.

"Without a doubt, Mikel Classen's Points North needs to be in every library, gift shop and quality bookstore throughout the country--particularly those located in Michigan's Lower Peninsula. Not only does Classen bring alive the U.P. through his polished words, his masterful use of color photography also makes this book absolutely beautiful. Points North will long stand as a tremendous tribute to one of the most remarkable parts of our country."
--Michael Carrier, author, Murder on Sugar Island

"Mikel Classen's love for Michigan's Upper Peninsula shines from every page in Points North, a fascinating insider's guidebook to the exceptional beauty and history of Michigan's far north. Whether you're still in the planning stages of your trip, or you're looking back fondly on the memories you created--even if you wish merely to enjoy a virtual tour of the Upper Peninsula's natural wonders from the comfort of your armchair, you need this book."
--Karen Dionne, author of the international bestseller, The Marsh King's Daughter

"Many of the places in Points North may sound familiar, but Classen has spent time exploring them all, finding out the wonders others drive by and miss. And some of them may baffle you as much as they did me: the UP has a WWII glider museum? Classen has scoured every inch of the UP, visiting every campground, ghost town, lighthouse, waterfall, and beach that you may have never heard of. This book is full of surprises for even the most knowledgeable visitors to the UP. And if you’re like me, you’ll find yourself marking up the pages, making notes of places you have to visit next time you’re up north."
--Steve Lehto, author of Death's Door: The Truth Behind the Strike of 1913 and the Italian Hall Disaster and Michigan's Columbus: The Life of Douglass Houghton

"Until I read this book, I had not realized the large number of hidden treasures that the U.P. has. More than just an interesting history, this book is a descriptive roadmap to these treasures. Points North can be used as a guide to an adventure you would never have known about on your own. The pictures and place descriptions here are fantastic! These hidden locations have suddenly become easy to find with this book. I recommend it highly."
--Bob Hruska, author of Humorous Hunting, Fishing, and Camping in the U.P. and Canada
