ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 8, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Signalman Publishing is proud to announce the release in paperback and as an ebook for the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble nook of "The Black Dog" by Reverend John R. Dolan of Western Springs, Illinois.

Powerfully illustrated by Paul Egel, this book is about the struggle of one man, a highly successful corporate executive, with depression and anxiety.

Anxiety and depression have always been taboo in society. Frequently, the subjects cannot be touched with a "ten-foot pole," let alone be a subject for family discussion. Depression is seen as neither worthy of compassion nor understanding. For the author of this book, a familiar record plays. "Young man, depressed? Nonsense; you have everything you need; just buck up and face the world the way we all have to." The message in this book is one of hope and of love, but most of all it demonstrates what is possible when you place your life, unconditionally, in the hands of Jesus Christ.

John McClure, president of Signalman Publishing, stated, "This book will resonate with anyone who has the same struggles or who has close family members that suffer from anxiety and depression. This is a book that will help the reader understand this condition and Signalman is very happy for the opportunity to present it to the public."

"The Black Dog" (ISBN: 978-1-935991-58-8, $13.99, Non-Fiction) from indie book publisher Signalman, is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble.com, and wherever fine books are sold.
