As one who has been through depression, this book describes what it is like and is helpful to loved-ones and others who are watching you go through the experience. In my case, it gave those around me going through depression a glimpse of what my experience was.

Description

'I Had a Black Dog says with wit, insight, economy and complete understanding what other books take 300 pages to say. Brilliant and indispensable.' - Stephen Fry 'Finally, a book about depression that isn't a prescriptive self-help manual. Johnston's deftly expresses how lonely and isolating depression can be for sufferers. Poignant and humorous in equal measure.' Sunday Times There are many different breeds of Black Dog affecting millions of people from all walks of life. The Black Dog is an equal opportunity mongrel. It was Winston Churchill who popularized the phrase Black Dog to describe the bouts of depression he experienced for much of his life. Matthew Johnstone, a sufferer himself, has written and illustrated this moving and uplifting insight into what it is like to have a Black Dog as a companion and how he learned to tame it and bring it to heel.

Author Biography

Matthew Johnstone is an artist, writer and exhibited photographer. New Zealandborn, he worked in advertising in Sydney, San Francisco and New York. He now resides in Sydney with his family. He and his wife, Ainsley, know all too well what it's like to live with a 'black dog' - Matthew has personally experienced the hell of depression, while Ainsley has first-hand knowledge of the frustration and confusion almost always felt by those who care for a depressed person. Together they are uniquely able to offer practical and helpful advice.
