    Doody's Review Service
    Reviewer: Nancy Schell, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
    Description: This book draws together epidemiologic, diagnostic, and treatment information with the past and current research in these areas.
    Purpose: The text was conceptualized as a tool for clinicians and researchers to understand the varying impact of comorbidity in affective disorders. It was meant to be a comprehensive, yet concise overview.
    Audience: The main audience is practitioners and researchers, both clinical and biological.
    Features: While the book is divided into two major parts, depression and bipolar disorder, both follow somewhat parallel development. Written by carefully selected experts, issues on substance abuse, medical illness, and other Axis I disorders, as well as Axis II disorders are addressed. Tables and charts illustrate points and present data. References are current.
    Assessment: This is a very useful book. It is highly recommended to those interested in comorbidity of affective disorders.

    This book is concise and well written. It is exceptionally well referenced, providing a very good overview of the American literature on the subject of co-morbid illness....strongly recommend[ed] for personal reading, as it presents an exceptionally good mixture of theoretical, diagnostic and treatment issues. It is interesting and very readable.

    A reference on psychiatric patients with more than one diagnosis, more the rule than the exception these days, for both clinicians and researchers. For clinicians, presents epidemiological and diagnostic information to aid in diagnosis and treatment planning by taking into account the impact of comorbidity on both the treatment and the outcome. For researchers, offers insights that could help the proper design of clinical trials by considering if excluding patients with comorbidity would affect the generalizability of the findings, or including then would affect the validity of the results. After an epidemiological review, specialists cover depression and bipolar disorder in turn, considering the presence of substance abuse, medical illness, personality disorders, the elderly, and children and adolescents.
