'If you have ever been down, or felt lost, this amazing book will change your life ... Read it now' - Elton John

'The more people read this book, the better off the world will be' - Naomi Klein

'A brilliant, stimulating, radical take on mental health' - Matt Haig

From the New York Times bestselling author of Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs, a radically new way of thinking about depression and anxiety.

What really causes depression and anxiety - and how can we truly solve them? Award-winning journalist Johann Hari has suffered from depression since he was a child and started taking antidepressants when only a teenager. He was told that his problems were caused by a chemical imbalance in his brain. As an adult, trained in social sciences, he began to investigate if 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 who are discovering seven very different solutions - ones that work.

It is an epic journey that will change how we think about one of the biggest crises in our culture today.
