"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 [believe they] are largely caused by key problems with the way we live today. Hari's journey took him from a ... series of experiments in Baltimore, to an Amish community in Indiana, to an uprising in Berlin. Once he had uncovered [what he argues are] nine real causes of depression and anxiety, they led him to scientists who are discovering seven very different solutions"--Amazon.com.

The topic and content of the book is very important though i think the public has known that for years- that antidepressants, as well as many drugs pushed into the market by the greedy pharmaceutical industry are nothing but scam. That said, I didn't enjoy the author's writing at the beginning of the book, it felt kinda flat and disconnected in some parts. It improved in the last chapters.

Well-researched, interesting and approachable. It covers the research on psychiatric drugs and their spotty efficacy and then moves on to talk to numerous social science researchers about the effects of society on peoples mental health. I would recommend this book to both sufferers of depression and those who are just generally interested. I think this is a great book.

An excellent read, I particularly enjoyed the first few chapters which reiterate the book by Ben Goldacre "Bad Pharma" ....that very poor science is behind so many drugs we are told to trust.
