The Noonday Demon PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Noonday Demon free pdf This work digs deep and painfully into personal experience of depression and mental illness, while also considering the wider picture: the historical, social, biological, pharmaceutical and medical aspects and implications of the disease. Having experienced what he is writing about firsthand, Solomon describes the experience from the inside. He has also researched every aspect of depression, including: the historical treatment and study of "melancholy" as far back as the Greeks and Romans (who believed that cauliflower was good for depression), and through to the side effects of the pharmaceutical cocktails of the present day- case histories of people in out of mental hospitals- faith healers- the power of suggestion- and the implications for the future of Western society.
