THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'This amazing book will change your life' Elton John 'Brilliant' Matt Haig 'Wonderful' Hillary Clinton 'A game-changer' Davina McCall 'Brilliant for anyone wanting a better understanding of mental health' Zoe Ball A radically new way of thinking about mental health. What really causes depression and anxiety - and how can we really solve them? Award-winning journalist Johann Hari suffered from depression since he was a child and started taking anti-depressants when he was a teenager. He was told that his problems were caused by a chemical imbalance in his brain. As an adult, trained in the social sciences, he began to investigate whether this was true - and he learned that almost everything we have been told about depression and anxiety is wrong. Across the world, Hari found social scientists who were uncovering evidence that depression and anxiety are largely caused by key problems with the way we live today. Hari's journey took him from a mind-blowing series of experiments in Baltimore, to an Amish community in Indiana, to an uprising in Berlin. Once he had uncovered nine real causes of depression and anxiety, they led him to scientists who are discovering seven very different solutions - ones that work.

Author: Johann Hari Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/01/2016

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER THE SUBJECT OF THE VIRAL TED TALK What if everything you think you know about addiction is wrong? One of Johann Hari's earliest memories is of trying to wake up one of his relatives and not being able to. As he grew older, he realised he had addiction in his family. Confused, unable to know what to do, he set out on a three-year, 30,000-mile journey to discover what really causes addiction - and what really solves it. He uncovered a range of remarkable human stories - of how the war on drugs began with Billie Holiday, the great jazz singer, being stalked and killed by a racist policeman; of the scientist who discovered the surprising key to addiction; of how Britain had an extraordinary experiment with legalising drugs that was snuffed out; and of the countries that moved beyond the war on drugs - with extraordinary results. His discoveries led him to give a TED talk and animation which have now been viewed more than 25 million times. This is the story of a life-changing journey that showed the world the opposite of addiction is connection.

"e;Hari vereint prazise Recherche mit einer zutiefst menschlichen Erzahlung. Dieses Buch wird eine dringend notwendige Debatte auslosen."e; Glenn GreenwaldDer Krieg gegen die Drogen gilt inzwischen als gescheitert, der Handel mit Drogen ist ein bluhendes Geschaft, alle Manahmen gegen den Konsum sind weitgehend erfolglos. Woran liegt das? Der britische Journalist Johann Hari begibt sich auf eine einzigartige Reise - von Brooklyn uber Mexiko bis nach Deutschland - und erzahlt die Geschichten derjenigen, deren Leben vom immerwahrenden Kampf gegen Drogen gepragt ist: von Dealern, Suchtigen, Kartellmitgliedern, den Verlierern und Profiteuren. Mit seiner grandiosen literarischen Reportage schreibt Hari sowohl eine Geschichte des Krieges gegen Drogen als auch ein mitreiendes und streitbares Pladoyer zum Umdenken."e;Hervorragender Journalismus, packend erzahlt."e; Naomi Klein"e;Phantastisch!"e; Noam Chomsky
