Biography & Autobiography. Psychology. Self-Improvement. Nonfiction. HTML:The New York Times bestseller from the author of Chasing the Scream, offering a radical new way of thinking about depression and anxiety.

What really causes depression and anxietyand how can we really solve them? Award-winning journalist Johann Hari suffered from depression since he was a child and started taking antidepressants when he was a teenager. He was told that his problems were caused by a chemical imbalance in his brain. As an adult, trained in the social sciences, he began to investigate whether this was true-and he learned that almost everything we have been told about depression and anxiety is wrong.

Across the world, Hari found social scientists who were uncovering evidence that depression and anxiety are not caused by a chemical imbalance in our brains. In fact, they are largely caused by key problems with the way we live today. Hari's journey took him from a mind-blowing series of experiments in Baltimore, to an Amish community in Indiana, to an uprising in Berlin. Once he had uncovered nine real causes of depression and anxiety, they led him to scientists who are discovering seven very different solutionsones that work.

It is an epic journey that will change how we think about one of the biggest crises in our culture today. His TED talk, "Everything You Think You Know About Addiction Is Wrong," has been viewed more than eight million times and revolutionized the global debate. This book will do the same.

This is a great book. It identifies many problems in our society and points to potential solutions not all are great or actionable but some are. I don’t agree with all its conclusions but a lot of them. ( )

The idea is that depression and anxiety are over-medicalized, and that they should be solved culturally rather than with pills. His heart's in the right place, but it seemed like the examples all involved people with quite obvious problems, and lo and behold, they felt better once they'd solved their problems. That's not "depression." That's having a problem. ( )

This book is an honest exploration of the reasons why anxiety and depression are at such high levels in the modern world. Written not by a psychologist or sociologist, Johann Hari uses his journalistic training and passion for self-search to thoroughly interview and cite scientists and researchers across multiple disciplines of psycho/social/emotional knowledge.

The result are 9 reasons we are disconnected (which exacerbates anxiety + depression) and, more important, how to reconnect without relying on SSRI's and the western compulsion to label everything a disorder or disease.

An eye-opening read for anyone, but especially folks who have dealt with depression or anxiety. ( )

I was very skeptical about this book but it was recommended by someone whose opinion I respect so I read it. I think it is a fair analysis of important issues and brings some insights that are new to me and worth thinking about. I don't myself suffer from depression or (often) from anxiety but know people who do, and found useful ideas in this book.

I feared it would fall into one of two camps: either the "big medicine is a scam and I have the cure" camp or the "here's a tiny preliminary bit of research that's going to change the world" camp. Instead the author pulled together several lines of thought, giving full citations to the research papers for each, and proposed some helpful steps toward making changes in one's own life and society.

I realized how controversial this book was as soon as I started talking about it to people in my life who have been diagnosed with depression. Challenging the strictly pharmaceutical approach to addressing depression is no small thing, and when I factor in that I’ve never been treated for depression, I feel...maybe not like the ideal person to sing the praises of this book or the ideas therein.
But since the ideas make a lot of sense to me, I’m going to sing a few praises and also note that the author speaks from the experience of someone who spent 15 years on antidepressants and was very hesitant to look for other answers to his problem.
The heart of this book can be summed up by this quote near the end.
You are not suffering from a chemical imbalance in your brain. You are suffering from a social and spiritual imbalance in how we live. Much more than you’ve been told up to now, it’s not serotonin; it’s society. It’s not your brain; it’s your pain. Your biology can make your stress worse, for sure. But it’s not the cause.


Half the book covers his search and discoveries of other possible causes of depression, and the last half consists of proposed solutions to each. While the first half made perfect sense to me, it was hard not to get discouraged by the solutions presented in the second half, some of which require huge societal and political shifts. I believe big changes can happen, and that a lot of what he talks about in the second half of the book needs to happen, but boy, it all sounds hard.
I believe the author recognizes this and tries to give the reader hope with the example of other major shifts that have made people’s lives better.
I’m not sure how to wrap things up except to say that the book offers great ideas, many of which will not be easily or quickly carried out.
There’s an extensive notes section at the end, and a lot of his references are from studies published in scholarly journals. I wish he’d provided a bibliography as well. There were lots of book recommendations within the notes, but a separate section listing his book references would have been great for a lazy person who didn’t jot them down when she should have.
Interesting side note: I’m taking a class on research and assessment that I’m having a very hard time applying to my professional life, but it has given me a good basis to understand his terminology when referring to the different research studies he used as source material. I guess the crazy amount of money going into grad school this semester is good for something. ( )
