And while this is a fantastic read if you have depression, it’s just as an important read if you don’t!
This non-fiction book discusses such a prominent topic of depression. I love that the author is not actually a doctor or psychologist, but an investigative reporter who researches studies on depression and travels the world to interview all the “who’s who” in this realm. It’s written in a “journalistic” style with many anecdotal stories and personal accounts which makes it short-story like, while keeping facts, research, and breakthroughs in science as a top priority and maintains validity on every point. Personally, I feel that Hari (the author) is spot on about his reasons why today’s world has such a high rate of depression. And while this is a fantastic read if you have depression, it’s just as an important read if you don’t! I feel the main component – Connections – is useful for personal growth, medical science, but also in business. A focus on re-connecting in every aspect of our lives could be the positive change in our humanity and businesses that can incorporate this philosophy into their plan and vision, will ultimately keep customers happy, coming back, and CONNECTED!
