The truth is that there isn't one big solution to depression, but there are numerous simple steps you can take to alter brain activity and chemistry.

Excellent resource for those with depression - may be especially helpful for those who have a more logical or scientifically curious mind: he explains different physical parts and different system tendencies with the brain, and how to proactively influence them through various means to beat depression. Very accessible too as he also includes his own experiences with depression and a fun bit of humor throughout.
