This book is short and sweet. If you are looking for a quick read that is still entertaining and informative this is the book for you. Just like the title says it is about a man in a pit. Through this imagery the author shows how someone who is suffering with depression might feel and see the world. It also shows the side of society and how people with depression are often treated (or rather mistreated).
Now, before you start thinking that you can just read this book and everything will be roses in your life stop because this is not a replacement for treatment. This was not written by a doctor but someone who wanted to share his experiences with others in the hopes that it will help them to understand their loved ones who may be going through depression.
And he succeeds in this purpose. The way that he describes being the man in the pit and how others speak with him about being in the pit is so close to how I have experienced moments of depression.
If you want a quick read to help you understand a loved one who is experiencing depression this is the book for you.
