Book Overview

A bestseller for over 20 years, I Don't Want to Talk About It is a groundbreaking and hopeful guide to understanding and destigmatizing male depression, essential not only for men who may be suffering but for the people who love them.

Twenty years of experience treating men and their families has convinced psychotherapist Terrence Real that depression is a silent epidemic in men--that men hide their condition from family, friends, and themselves to avoid the stigma of depression's un-manliness. Problems that we think of as typically male--difficulty with intimacy, workaholism, alcoholism, abusive behavior, and rage--are really attempts to escape depression. And these escape attempts only hurt the people men love and pass their condition on to their children.

This groundbreaking book is the pathway out of darkness that these men and their families seek. Real reveals how men can unearth their pain, heal themselves, restore relationships, and break the legacy of abuse. He mixes penetrating analysis with compelling tales of his patients and even his own experiences with depression as the son of a violent, depressed father and the father of two young sons.

   I've read them all, and this book is hands-down the best guide about depression in men I've found.
I've read them all, and this book is hands-down the best guide about depression in men I've found, and I don't expect to find a better book on this subject, I've stopped looking. In "The Savage" (Simon & Schuster), Blair knows the special shame that comes with being a depressed man. You will realize you are not alone when you open this book. It tackles the root causes of many of our problems, including: male stereotypes and tendencies that get us into trouble, sickness or into an early grave. You can't let perfectionism take over your life. You are DESERVE IT!

   Great read for any adult as young as 18
Dealing with depression and also coming from a family of alcoholics and going through trauma with my father and mother, I found comfort in a girlfriend who went through all of it with me. Now I have found why it was not such a good idea to find comfort before I took care of my own depression. I wish i could have read this one earlier because it teaches you a lot. Men should not fear seeking help in therapy and I made the mistake of ignoring my own girlfriend and mother because i had a lot of anger with my dad that i took out on those who i love, she wrote.

   very helpful
In "Boys," McCartney writes, "the legacy of childhood abuse and abandonment, PTSD and depression in men is often ignored. I have highlighted so many pages that bring me understanding and hope, Raymond said. I have recommended this book to friends and family.

   I don't want to talk about it by Terrance real
It's great to have this resource at your disposal when you need help, said Cara Dhaliwal, a licensed clinical social worker. It's great to be back home, said Blair, "and I hope everybody has a good Christmas." It's just that grief is the depression's cure.

   finally acknowledged!
The covert male depression finally came to light thanks to Terry Real, a New Zealand TV personality who calls it explained by its name and creates a new awareness on this taboo subject. A must read.

   Eye Opening and Revolutionary
I got some answers, Mr. Caramore said. The book, "American Masters," resonated with me, Raymond said. It's great to see husbands reading this, and wives should too. I needed new thinking, he said.

   Please Read This Book!
Depression has haunted me for a long time, making me a pariah among my family, friends, community and society in general. After reading this book, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel and was inspired to continue on with treatment and work to heal, he said. If you're a man who's depressed this book is for you.

   Important book for understanding men's behavior
Yes, I have depression. Yes, I don't cry and I don't lie in bed, Taylor said. Men can ruin their lives and their families' lives because of untreated depression, and no one recognizes it because their angry behavior is so different from what we think depression looks like, he said. Many people could gain great understanding from this book, and hopefully it will lead some to get the help which could really make things better, he said.
