Depression will be the single biggest cause of disability worldwide, in the next 20 years. But treatment for it has not changed much in the last three decades. In the realm of psychiatry, time has apparently stood still... until now.In this game-changing book, Professor Edward Bullmore reveals the breakthrough new science on the link between mental depression and physical inflammation. He explains how and why mental disorders can have their roots in the immune system and explores a whole new way of looking at how mind, brain and body all work together in a sometimes misguided effort to help us survive in a hostile world.

About the Publisher

Short Books

Founded in 2001 by former journalists Rebecca Nicolson and Aurea Carpenter, Short Books has established itself as a publisher of first-class, entertaining fiction and non-fiction. Notable successes have included bestselling Amo, amas, amat… And all that by Harry Mount, The Social Animal by David Brooks, The J.M Barrie Ladies’ Swimming Society by Barbara J. Zitwer and The Fast Diet by Dr. Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer. We are a small company, and pride ourselves on being light on our feet – thereby making a success of potentially high-risk or less obvious titles that the larger houses would turn down without a second look. Take, for example, the ground-breaking eco-/social regeneration book, Change the World for a Fiver, which has now sold hundreds of thousands of copies around the world.
