This book was born from my attempts to explain to my wife what it is like to suffer from depression. She has tried hard to understand, but I find it impossible to explain. If you are a fellow sufferer, you'd understand. If you are a friend or a family member of someone who suffers from depression, perhaps this book can help. It is about the day to day struggle to hold down a job and to raise a family. My rags to riches career is in here too, but if you find it boring, skip it or speed read; I won’t be offended. Sufferer or concerned observer, I hope that it may bring a measure of peace.
