I'm proof it's possible to overcome depression - and in my Amazon UK Top 100 bestseller, I'll show you how I did it!

Hi there,

My name's Danny Baker - I'm the co-founder of The Depression Project and the author of Depression is a Liar - and these days, life is very, very good.

As I write this:

I have my dream job of being an author/entrepreneur.

I recently married the love of my life!

I'm privileged to be able to help hundreds of thousands of people each month through The Depression Project.

And, prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, I'd spent the previous 4+ years travelling non-stop around the world while I wrote my next book and worked on my businesses.

But, 10 years ago now, instead of feeling full of joy and that life was beautiful, I felt scared … and miserable … and ashamed of the person who stared back at me in the mirror.

I found it impossible to be able to construct or even envision a future – and I felt shockingly, shockingly helpless as a result.

I soon lost myself in alcohol, and in drugs, since they seemed like the only remedies that could keep my anguish at bay.

When I finally got sober, I felt so overwhelmed just trying to get through each day that it felt like I was fighting to keep my head above water when it was up to my nose, and the water kept getting deeper, and I’d forgotten how to swim, and there was no-one around to save me, and no matter how much I kicked and struggled and screamed, I just kept sinking.

And after a while, I started thinking:

“What’s the point of all this? What’s the point in continuing to fight a battle I don’t think I can win?”

And over the next 36 months, I felt suicidal on more days than I’ll ever remember. Due to an antidepressant medication I’d been wrongly prescribed, I developed psychosis, and ended up in a psych ward. I got diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I wound up in hospital for a second time, and I believed – with all my heart – that I would never, ever, ever recover.

Since you’re thinking about reading this book, my friend, then I’m guessing that in your own way, you’ve been through hell too.

So, I want to tell you my story - to try my damnedest to convince you that just like me, you CAN recover.

I want to tell you my story to show you the steps you need to follow in order to do so.

And, if you’re on the verge of suicide like I’ve been, I want to tell you my story to do my damnedest to convince you to put down the gun. Or to drop the razor blade. Or to put the pills back in the cupboard – because I swear to God life can get better.

I swear to God it’s possible to overcome depression and live your dreams.

Who should read this book?

In particular, this memoir is recommended for the following people:

People who don’t believe that it’s possible to recover from depression and find happiness again

I will show you that it is, and after reading this book, you'll find yourself feeling uplifting, hopeful and inspired to do the same.

People who keep relapsing over and over again, and accordingly believe that they’ll never truly be free of depression

I’ll explain why you keep relapsing, and tell you what I did to ensure that, over time, my relapses occurred less and less frequently before eventually petering out for good.

People with depression who want to feel understood

You’ll in all likelihood be able to relate to the majority of my story, and after reading it, I promise you that you’ll feel far less alone.

People who don't know what to do to recover from depression

This memoir is a "case study" on how to go from hating yourself, feeling endlessly miserable and on the verge of suicide to feeling happy, healthy, and living your dream life. I'll show you exactly what I did to make this happen - including everything that didn't work as well as the things that did - so that by the time you've finished reading this book, you'll know what you need to do to overcome your depression.

People who are close to a loved one who suffers from depression and want to better understand the illness

I promise I’ll give it to you straight and not sugar-coat a thing.
