I Don’t Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression
by Terrance Real

When Terrence Real was studying to be a therapist, he accepted the notion that women suffered depression at rates several times that of men. Now he believes that conventional wisdom is wrong, that there has been a great cultural cover-up of depression in men. Real is convinced of the existence of a mental illness that is passed from fathers to sons in the form of rage, workaholism, distanced relationships from loved ones, and self-destructive behaviors ranging from stupid choices at work and in love to drug and alcohol abuse. Men reading I Don’t Want to Talk About It will probably recognize themselves in every chapter, while women will recognize their partners—and, of course, both sexes will see their fathers in a new light.
