How to Weep in Public: Feeble Offerings on Depression from One Who Knows by Jacqueline Novak
How to Weep in Public: Feeble Offerings on Depression from One Who Knows by Jacqueline Novak is new book that provides a satire on depression. Depression is a common mood disorder, but is often considered to be a taboo subject. Almost everyone at some point has experienced at least a transient episode of depression once in their lives. This lighthearted book speaks truths about depression uaing satire and humor. Intended for the clinically depressed individual who may need some bit of comic relief- this offers simple advice and insight for the reader.This book does not take much effort to read as it is simply written. Nevertheless as the author acknowledges, the truly depressed may not have the stamina to read a full book- but even that is okay as this book can be read in short bursts or snippets. This book is written so that the reader may skip to a particular chapter if he or she does not want to start from the beginning. The author discusses relationships, pets and even medication. There probably isn't a topic that is not discussed. Novak has a lot to share with the reader in her new unique and insightful book. As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Three Rivers Press for the purpose of writing this review.
