In 1982 Anthony Clare interviewed Spike Milligan for the radio series In The Psychiatrists's Chair and was so overwhelmed by Milligan's account of his forty years of depressive experiences that he knew he had found the person to help him illuminate and explore the mysterious and sometimes terrifying illness that is clinical depression.
Depression and How to Survive It is the result of this collaboration, through which Anthony Clare charts the development of Spike's illness and the strategies he uses in dealing with it. Drawing inspiration and advice from Spike's experience, Depression and How to Survive It is a book which takes you to the depths of human unhappiness in order to show you the way out.
