Russian Roulette is a superb book about the experiences and consequences of depression. Martin Magoun deftly weaves personal experiences with important information regarding suicide, recreational drugs and prescription drugs. He includes chapters that describe other's foray into this dark disease. Magoun's writing is exceptional. We are invited into his journey through this disease with his open-hearted journal, and we gain a fresh and even startling understanding of how a depressive person views the world. With the combination of his personal story, essays and ample footnoting of important sources, we gain access to an illness that desperately needs the many insights Magoun provides. This book is for anyone who has experienced depression, knows someone with depression, or is interested in gaining knowledge about this often misunderstood disease. The book, in fact, can save lives. Ultimately, it is Magoun's extraordinary writing craft that keeps us turning the page--an excellent resource and incredible read. --Victoria Taylor Smith
