    "I used to be overly depressed about myself. I don't even know how to handle this without hurting myself. But ever since I read this book and went thru how CHarlie handled his depression, I got inspired with the methods he used to cope with how he reacts to sadness. Using these methods, I got to overcome my own demons myself. Kudos to the author!"

    "When people are depressed, they tend to neglect their bodies. I've got a depressed friend who wouldn't even take care of his body. I'm a gym trainer and so I pushed for this dude to turn to exercise as a way for him to cope depression. Not only did it help him from depression, he's living a healthier lifestyle than ever! This workout challenge really helped me program exercises for him even if we can't really do it 30 days straight."
