I Don’t Want to Talk About It Paperback


In his acclaimed, breakthrough bestseller, Terry Real exposes the silent epidemic of depression among men-and offers hope for ending the pain and the shame-in I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression (A Fireside Book/Simon & Schuster Trade Paperback; March 1998).



Depression, Terry Real contends, affects the lives of as many men as women-even though women are twice as likely to be treated. As vivid and eloquent as a great novel, I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT interweaves penetrating analysis with poignant, compelling tales of patients-poorly fathered sons of all ages and backgrounds who have grown up to become “rage-aholics” or emotional runaways. Throughout, Real shares moving accounts of his own life, from a painful boyhood, beaten and ignored by a depressed father, through a troubled manhood, disconnected and seeking solace in drugs, to his eventual healing – a journey of self-awareness, grief, and acceptance. I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT has been chosen as an Alternate Selection of The Book-of-the-Month Club, the Quality Paperback Book Club, and the One Spirit Book Club.
