Books provide comfort in the form of words. Some are purely listed because they were also meaningful to their readers on this sad journey. There is a Hebrew saying:  Hold a book in your hand and you’re a pilgrim at the gates of a new city. May these books be guides on your pilgrimages which will bring new insight and new hope, in whichever form. Those that deal with depression specifically, or which are self-help books, are highlighted.
