I want to buy this book. Help make sure it gets written.

I’m a little late to this party since Stephanie Zvan and Ed Brayton have already blogged on this, but Ania Bula is writing a book about depression that will lambast the copious amount of alternative treatments that seek to profit, not by alleviating mental illness, but by capitalizing on desire to be cured.  She will also address how religion often takes advantage of depression to swell its ranks (and subsequently its coffers).

Obviously, I’m a fan.

Right now she is trying to raise money to help offset the costs of taking the time to write, for promotion, and for publication.  If you want to help, pop over to this link.  She’s also done a guest post over at Ophelia Benson’s blog about the book that has even more info.
