Cheer Up, Love - Susan Calman

Susan Calman is a Scottish comedian who has written about her life lived with depression.  I like this type of memoir that isn't too preachy but is a way of helping others by describing her own coping mechanisms.  I had not heard of this comedian before, but this didn't stop me enjoying the book and laughing at stories about her life and I found the balance of humor and seriousness was done well, with the appropriate amount of name dropping.  Jokes about her cats helped too.  4/5

I must make a note of this, not sure it would be available here in Canada -- maybe download? I'm sure I could relate to (at least some of) her experiences with depression!
