'Anyone worried about a depressed friend or relative should read this book'
In 1982, leading psychiatrist and TV presenter Anthony Clare interviewed Spike Milligan for the radio series In The Psychiatrist's Chair. He was so overwhelmed by Milligan's account of his forty years of depressive experiences that he knew he had found the right person to help him illuminate and explore the mysterious and sometimes terrifying condition that is clinical depression.
Depression and How to Survive It charts the development of world-famous comedian Spike Milligan's clinical depression and the strategies he used in dealing with the often-misunderstood disorder.
Drawing inspiration and advice from Spike's experience, this unique book from one of Britain's most successful psychiatrists, will take you to the depths of human unhappiness and show you the way towards leading a happy life.
