In a newly revised edition of Depression, the Mood Disease, Dr. Francis Mondimore explores the many faces of an illness that will affect as many as 36 million Americans at some point in their lives. Concise, informative, and accessible, this widely acclaimed consumer's guide has been thoroughly updated to reflect state-of-the-art treatment. It tells readers exactly what they need to know about antidepressant drugs and electro-convulsive therapy, about Seasonal Affective Disorder and panic attacks, about the special problems of depression in children and older persons, and how to deal with a depressed friend or family member. Dr. Mondimore explains how such disorders as hormonal imbalance can mimic the symptoms of depression, and why depression is sometimes misdiagnosed as PMS, drug abuse, or Alzheimer's disease. The revised Depression, the Mood Disease offers needed advice―and a message of hope.

Francis Mark Mondimore, M.D., is a psychiatrist and a member of the clinical faculty of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His books include Bipolar Disorder and A Natural History of Homosexuality, both available from Johns Hopkins.From Library Journal:
In the style of Demitri and Janice Papolos's Overcoming Depression (Harper, 1987) but less detailed, this book presents a "consumer's guide" to mood or affective disorders. Mondimore discusses symptoms, proper diagnosis, treatment, causes, and advice to families along with the connection between mood disorders and seasonal affective disorder, premenstrual syndrome, panic disorders, and anorexia. But he omits mentioning the relationship between depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The book succeeds best as a readable, informative, comforting overview of a common illness frightening to most people. Its conciseness, however, can be dangerous; it offers no detailed list of foods incompatible with the MAO inhibitors used to treat depression, too few case studies, and little about psychotherapy. Recommended only as a supplement to the Papolos's book or similar titles.
