Does anyone know of a good overview of what humans know about depression?

If I wanted to spend 1 to 5 hours getting oriented on everything that we collectively know about depression (starting with whatever pieces are settled, and then moving onto the confusing mess of conflicting data that's left), what resources should I start with?

Textbooks, sections of textbooks, web articles, blogposts by experts, youtube videos, and other formats that I haven't thought of, are all admissible.

Johann Hari: Lost Connections – I listened to the Making Sense Podcast episode where Sam Harris talked with the author. It made me want to read the book, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

Also, the Library of Congress looks like a good starting point for finding books on the subject: SUBJECTS beginning with: Depression, Mental.
