Editorial Reviews

The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

The present volume, massive and inclusive, representing the best efforts of knowledgeable colleagues, does not disappoint. Between the table of contents and the index, the clinician and/or investigator is certain to find up-to-date information on the desired topic….Every chapter contains data and ideas that add to one's understanding of mood-disordered patients, those at risk for such disorders, and those who should be patients but have not entered into a treatment relationship. Clearly, this textbook is a resource which no medical library and, ideally, no practitioner should be without.

PsycCRITIQUES

Until now, there had been no comprehensive text dealing with mood disorders that integrated basic research across the spectrum of mood disorders and offered clinical guidance based largely on empirical research. This need is well met by the publication of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Mood Disorders…This is an outstanding book, valuable as a desk reference for clinicians, psychologists, or psychiatrists as well as researchers interested in basic or clinical topics.

Written and edited by internationally recognized clinician-researchers on mood disorders, it is an outstanding contribution to the field and will become a standard textbook in this important clinical domain.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, is to provide a useful textbook summarizing the current progress on mood disorders, for clinicians in their day-to-day practice. Indeed, the editors and chapter authors have succeeded in producing a superb book.
Audience: The intended audience is clinicians. Psychiatrists and clinical psychologists and any other mental health professionals would greatly benefit their patients by knowing the contemporary literature on mood disorders that is reviewed here.

Each chapter ends with relevant citations of the literature and the book ends with a useful index.
