Amy Lyman reviews From Depression to Contentment

From the moment I saw the eagle soaring above the snow-capped peaks on Bob Rich’s From Depression to Contentment: A Self-Therapy Book, I was hoping the pages inside would be as captivating. I am not disappointed.

I personally do depression, as Dr. Rich would say. After reading this guide, I have many new tools in my belt. From self-care to spirituality, Dr. Rich draws on case studies, cultural and historical references to inspire and help the reader. There is a lot of great information in here. Be prepared to come away with quite a reading list.

Personally, I found many aha! moments. Some even brought me to tears.

The language is lovely. There is even beautiful poetry, quite a contrast to a dark, ugly disorder.

My favorite section is the one on Mitzvahs, or secret good deeds. After Dr. Rich shared his own mitzvahs, I find myself not only wanting to read more of his work but also wanting to meet him for a cup of coffee. Compassion and vulnerability shine through each chapter.

As an author with a title character raven, the fact there were no less than seven bird references is not lost on me.

A recurring theme in the book is Something works for everyone, but nothing works for everyone. Dr. Rich does a fantastic job exploring different treatment options and emphasizing the importance of good self-care.

A must read. I highly recommend this book.

"Diane Wing throws some new and interesting characters into the storyline of A Winter's Tail, and they fit in seamlessly with the current cast of old friends. I love how the animals, Chrissy, Ace along with Mickey and others, don't just play second fiddle to the human characters. Each canine has their own identity and a necessary part of the plot. Kudos to Mrs. Wing for another great cozy afternoon read!" -Antoinette Brickhaus, Leonardtown, MD

"Treat yourself to A Winter's Tail-the gripping addition to Diane Wing's wildly popular Chrissy's Mysteries cozy series. Things turn dark and strange as Autumn encounters a series of bizarre and shocking events before their wedding day. Are the nuptials really cursed, or is it a vengeful foe returning for the ultimate revenge and desecration of Autumn and Ray's happily ever after? Snuggle in for this delightful treat." -Maxine Ashcraft, Oakland, CA

"This installment of the Chrissy the Shih Tzu cozy mysteries finds Chrissy's pet parent, Autumn, preparing for her wedding to Ray Reed, a local police lieutenant. Autumn's friend and cousin, Bea, is worried that Autumn and Ray's nuptials are cursed because of several setbacks to Autumn's plans. Meanwhile, Chrissy discovers a body in a snow pile and Ray is assigned to investigate the victim's death. This is the best book of the series so far! I couldn't figure out who was sabotaging Autumn and Ray's wedding until the final reveal. A fun, cute, and enjoyable read. -Terri Chalmers, Sicklerville, NJ
