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

  • Only 1% of the world's assets are held in the name of women.
  • 70% of people in abject poverty--living on less than $1 per day--are women.
  • Over half the women of this generation do not themselves receive, from either
    employment or the state, enough to 'get by'.

These shocking statistics call to our attention the importance of
financial independence among women. Financial dependence, though, is
just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Dependence can also be noted in
Validation and Self Esteem; Mobility and Daily Care; and Emotional
and A Shield from the World. Loving, caring, and well meaning
spouses, families, and caregivers can unwittingly gnaw away at self
confidence and self esteem until a person is unwittingly trapped in an
unhealthy situation.

Are you at risk?

  • Would you be financially secure without your spouse's income?
  • Do you find? it hard to say "no"?
  • Do you feel unlovable or ugly?
  • Have you given up on your dreams?
  • Are you truly unhappy with your life?

If so, there is hope! It is possible to regain
your self esteem, rebuild your self confidence,
and become independent once

Independence is a skill, an attitude, and a lifestyle that anyone
can achieve.

Praise for Tami Brady:

"The main point I saw in this work, and one I thought was outstanding,
is that we are all individuals, unique and that one set formula may not
work for everyone. I believe that is what makes her work different than
other self-help books." -Shirley Johnson, Midwest Book Review

"I found myself submersed in this book, discovering it a true source of encouragement, that however overwhelming life becomes, we should stay aware of what we want, never forgetting where we come from or what our dreams are."
-Tracy Jane-Newton, An Alternative View

"If you have been thinking there must be more to life than what you have; or you find you tend to say one thing in public, whilst being of an-other opinion in private, then this book may be for you."
-Sue Phillips, Spiralthreads Reviews
