"[Ilardi's] program helps patients reclaim six ancient lifestyle elements that can improve or eradicate depression. These include a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, the critical building blocks for brain structure and function; enjoyable activities that keep us from dwelling on negative thoughts; exercise that stimulates important brain chemicals; sufficient sunlight exposure to keep the body's clock in sync; social support to avoid isolation; and healthy sleep habits that allow the brain and body to recover. It works for me and it will work for you!"
Metapsychology Online Reviews
"A very good self-help book. Ilardi writes clearly, avoiding jargon, and speaking eloquently about many topics. His depiction of negative lifestyle influences on people's emotions and actions are on target; this is a splendid book because the recommendations made should lead to a healthier lifestyle for most people. Overcoming depression is not a simple challenge but one, I suspect, has a chance of success by reading this book."
"Ilardi's theory draws on discoveries in cognitive neuroscience and evolutionary psychology, which add heft to his commonsense advice; The Depression Cure arrays data that may inspire action."
"This book isn't just about depression. Dr. Ilardi's program can help all of us live with more zest and a greater sense of well-being."

"Those who have suffered recurring, meaningless bouts of depression might want to reach for The Depression Cure rather than Unstuck, especially those sick of hearing how they should search their mental illness for wisdom."
The Bookworm Sez (nationally syndicated column)
"Intriguing. Author Stephen S. Ilardi seems to be onto something when he points out that our ancestors didn't sit at a desk all day and fight traffic to go home stressed-out . . . Pick up a copy of The Depression Cure. With your doctor's blessing, a fair amount of effort, and this book, 'snapping out of it' might be a snap."
