Review:

"A brilliant work that speaks in eloquent and human terms about the gravest aspects of mental disorders. Dr. Whybrow's book is informative and compassionate and, not the least, thoroughly engrossing. It is a major contribution to the literature on mental illness."--William Styron, author of "Darkness Visible"An excellent book. It reflects not only the depth and breadth of the author's scientific and clinical contributions to the study of moods, but captures, in a wonderful way, the crucial role of moods in human nature and society....Anyone interested in moods, or disorders of moods will find this an informative, important and engrossing book."--Kay Redfield Jamison, author of "An Unquiet Mind"A most graceful introduction to the science of mood, by one of the world's experts."--Peter D. Kramer, author of "Listening to Prozac"A wise and graceful book that should be helpful and consoling to patients and their loved ones--as well as to their physicians and therapists. His unique perspective rehumanizes those individuals suffering from manic depressive disorders."--Irvin D. Yalom, author of "Lying on the Couch, Love's Executioner and "Theory and Practiceof Group Psychotherapy"A lucid and very comprehensive account of the experience, science, literature and evolutionary philosophy of depression."--Judith Rapoport, author of "The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Washing"The most thorough and wide-ranging discussion for lay readers about the interplay of the physical and emotional elements of depression and manic-depression.""--Kirkus Reviews"
