THE INTERNATIONAL 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.

"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
