    For anyone suffering from depression, this is gold. If one's depressed state allows for reading books, that is. Anyway, if depressed person is receptive to reading, which he or she usually is after first line defense with medication, this should be the very next thing. Everything in this book, from content in general, to facts in particular, as well as overall tone and approachability, is just tailor made to those who need it.

    I absolutely adored this book. I will probably read it again. I printed out the Gamerification worksheet and plan on going through my own quest to defeat my depression nemesis. I was almost sad that it was over and then I realized that, not only can I read other books by this author (and I will), but I can read this as many times as I want.

Now, on to the actual book critique. Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression is a no bullshit, non technical jargon, guide and suggestion book for one of the most common underestimated problem of depression. It uses average-joe language and never gets lost in the scientific explanations and causes of the depression so that the reader can really connect thoroughly with what it being suggested. The length of the book was absolutely perfect because it doesn't overstay its welcome yet gives you great detail in kick starting the battle against depression. A recommendation that I have for the author is to not repeat that the suggestion provided can be tailored to the individual person as many times. It is said in almost every chapter. It was an amazingly fun, insightful, and resourceful read and I am so happy to have spent time with this author. Please read if you are suffering with this demon!

    This book. I love this. Even if it feels like reading an average self-help book, I still love this. This book is so genuine and just basically treats you like a friend. If you're not new to these kind of books, I know what you're thinking. "It wasn't really 'that' special. No new information was tackled and discussed." THIS BOOK HELPED ME OKAY.

Yes, there weren't anything new but goddamn this book touched me. The last chapter was the one who made me so happy. Relating life with games and RPGs are so relatable and very effective teaching. It makes me feel not lonely no more because even professionals struggles with this -- even the author itself! I think this book is a great guide. I made a cognitive chart (just like the book said )to overview my progress. I give this book 5 stars not because it's perfect, but because it made me feel imperfect and that's okay. P.S. I named mine "ligma". What's yours?

    the behemoth we know as depression is formidable and something we don't fully understand. i believe books like this one give us a lot of real life insight towards understanding and treating depression, whether you are someone who suffers from it or know someone who does. Dr Rob is charming, witty and very relate-able. He has researched and treated this subject enough to give us in depth and useful knowledge about the physical and mental traits of depression.

Robert Duff offers many tecnhiques useful in many aspects of life from home, work or school. Even though they may not apply to me, i am still going to use a few of these techniques just to see how they work for me. i left this book more informed then when i went in and i had a blast reading it.

    I loved this book. The content and the way the author convey the massages to us is not depressing. Sometimes, I feel like my life depending on this book too much, when I get sad and emotional and depressed, I open this book and reread it contents. This book has a few chapters on it, by the fourth chapter, I couldn't help but to feel sad and cried. There's a bookmarks I put there and it says, "Suicidality is a spectrum.

It has a lot of thing and I couldn't say anymore other than praise that I found this book. It sure don't give you remedies but this book help you understand your depression and why, so that you can help yourself.

    My partner is suffering depression and being married for 17 years and having no idea what this was all about, I found this book to educate me without any hype. Will it help her? I don't think so as she is resisting help. Will it help me? Yes because now I have a greater appreciation of what she is going through. I think Robert's point to a non-sufferer understanding your worst day is the best day for a sufferer really hammers home how it is for someone you absolutely love and care for.

    This was the first non-fiction book I've read to do with mental health. This book is definitely aimed for a millenial demographic and it was obvious that the author was trying too hard at points to be "relatable".

    A journey through depression As someone who struggles with depressive episodes, I can say that this was the most informative and wonderfully articulate book I’ve read on the subject. The author has a superb writing style that makes the book feel more like a story rather than an informative work of non-fiction. The result is an easy to understand how-to guide filled with strategies to help you better manage the symptoms of depression.

    I'm so glad that I came across this book! My depression has been kicking my ass and taking a toll on my life for some time now, and it seems like not much is worthwhile anymore. After listening to the author on Audible explain depression and the ins and outs of what it feels like, looks like, and ways to work through it and fight it, and he does so as if he's in conversation with you as a friend, I was glad I made the purchase!

    A great starting point for anyone looking to tackle their depression head on. Accessible, plain-speaking and with a bunch of helpful resources, exercises and explanations. The chapter on different types of therapy and helping the reader to feel comfortable with searching for a therapist is great, but the winner for me is the chapter encouraging people to try game theory in their battle against depression. Treat your battle like a game, gather your weapons and level up!

    Actually quite helpful and informative I was pleasantly surprised here. The author does seem to get it and is never condescending or preachy like in other mental health self help books. Even if you don't suffer from depression I'd recommend this as a read as a way to better understand those who do. Actually quite helpful and informative I was pleasantly surprised here.

    Again like his other book “”F Anxiety” this didn’t seem anything necessarily groundbreaking - just some useful reminders about some basic and valid techniques to help you fight against depressing mindsets/states (Didn’t agree with everything tho like the validity and use of antidepressants) also a lot of common sense stuff I thought...but not totally useless I guess...

    I am really glad that I listened this by audio rather than reading the book because the author has a very special way to tell you and explain mental health in his own honest, witty and friendly way. This is the book where you can find a transparent and pure insight about depression. I personally think that I appreciate chapter 4 and 8 the most.

    Written in no-nonsense language, this is a good general starting point for finding information about depression. I wish it would have been edited a bit more to weed out the grammatical errors and misplaced words here and there, but overall it's a decently written book I'm glad I took time to read.

    Brilliant, light-hearted and captivating examples of the thought processes one goes through whilst you're in the midst of another "episode". Worth a listen and I hope Dr Duff has more books in the pipeline!

    About half of this was helpful. The second half is full of stuff I already knew. I DO love how this guy talks, though. If you're a beginner to treatment who doesn't want a bunch of b.s., this is for you. About half of this was helpful. The second half is full of stuff I already knew.

    I am not depressed, but I am reading books like this for reference. People around me are depressed and I have a child that will probably be depressed one day. So this is preventative. I like the style of this guy, it is definitely easier to digest this kind of stuff when it is less clinical.

The author gave many new ideas that I've never heard of from any therapist that I've personally seen. I love the resources mentioned, the explanations of terms, and the many different ways that I can get out of this funk. I highly recommend! This book was SO helpful for me!

    Practical, encouraging, and frank. It was also educational in ways I didn't expect. I learned a lot about how depression can manifest in a more practical way. When I need encouragement I listen to the book again. It changed how I see myself and my own recovery. Practical, encouraging, and frank. It was also educational in ways I didn't expect.

    Very useful, the talking points are clear and right to the point. But I didn't figure out if I am depressed or bipolar. PS: I am not a fan of profanity; In this book, it seems like the author is only using profanity to attract a crowd. Very useful, the talking points are clear and right to the point.
