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.Depression, the Mood Disease Textbook 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.- Janice Arenofsky, formerly with Arizona State Lib., PhoenixCopyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Review A readable, informative, comforting overview of an illness most people consider scary. (Library Journal February 2007) A clearly written, comprehensive, and compassionate guide. (Science Books and Films August 2007) If it seems a gloomy thought to explore the workings of mental doldrums, psychiatrist Mondimore makes this a safe trip, explaining in simple language how depression and manic-depression take effect and what victims can do about it. (Publishers Weekly March 11, 2008) A recommended pick for both public and college-level libraries. (Bookwatch February 2007) This is a reader friendly book on depression and mood disorders written primarily for patients and their families. It explains scientific and clinical facts at a patient level helping the patient get a better bearing on the nature of depression. (Doody's Review Service ) There are many books about depression currently available. What makes this one so special is its sheer comprehensiveness within a two hundred page limit... to be recommended to sufferers and professionals in the mental health field. (Kevin M. Purday Metapsychology ) Depression, the Mood Disease is a recommended pick for both public and college-level libraries. (Midwest Book Review )
