This second book from Matthew Johnstone, author of I Had a Black Dog, is an equally touching and beautifully illustrated book, written for those who care for those suffering from depression - friends, family members, colleagues, and even therapists. Using wonderful illustrations and the image of Churchill's infamous 'black dog', Matthew and his wife Ainsley offer a moving, inspirational and often humorous portrait of life with depression - not only for those suffering from it themselves, but for those close to them. Living with a Black Dog speaks directly to the carer and offers practical and sometimes tongue-in-cheek tips on helping the depression sufferer, such as 'Socks have little do with mental health. If people could just 'snap out of it' they would.' and 'Encourage any form of regular exercise. Fitness robs the Dog of its power'. Based on their own experiences, Matthew and his wife Ainsley treat the subject of depression sympathetically, hopefully and, most importantly, humorously.

Hoping to prevent her best friend's suicide, Sydney Reardon rushes to Puerto Vallarta where she becomes entangled with witchcraft, a handsome Gringo lawyer, a New York cop, a huge black dog-and murder. This book, one of a series, was a selection of the Mystery Book Club. Her other books, also from Sunstone Press, are "Little Green Man in Ireland" and "Three Deadly Days in Spain." Mary Branham was assistant director of the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Having bought numerous thick books at airport shops and left them on the plane unfinished, she determined to write a series of books that could be enjoyed on a flight of reasonable length and call them "airplane books." * * * * "It is a challenge to develop characters and action in such a narrow framework, but Mary Branham successfully integrates some interesting characters around Maude's personality, which permeates the entire story. Mary Branham obeys one of the adages of writing: 'write what you know.' Her descriptions of Puerto Vallarta are interesting and show that she has spent considerable time there. She also does a nice job of working in a few side stories to keep the plot moving-big on dialog and relaxing for the brain." -The Midwest Book Review * * * * LIBRARY JOURNAL reported: "Memorable characters, slick dialog, and almost whimsical settings make this a delightful short read...." -Library Journal

Andrew Robb lived with an unspoken fear that what he passed off as 'not being good in the mornings' was something darker: a black dog whose daily visit lasted longer as the years passed. Worried about stigmas and letting people down, he avoided confronting the problem for four decades, the adrenaline of high-pressure and high profile jobs offering the ideal antidote. Ultimately, realising his ambitions meant having to face up to this very private demon. Andrew Robb's battle with the black dog has touched a chord with many Australians. His memoir explores the challenges of managing depression, political ambition and life in the Liberal Party. Andrew Robb's career has been devoted to the Liberal cause-as Federal Director of the Liberal Party, as Executive Director of the National Farmers Federation, during seven years in the Packer business empire, and now in parliamentary politics. His memoirs document the private struggle and the public life of the Liberal Party's chief political strategist. It offers readers an insight into one man's lifelong battle with a private demon amidst the drama and tumult of contemporary Australian politics.
