'Dr. Rosenthal, a pioneering researcher who helped put seasonal depression on the map, is also a gifted teacher and storyteller. What do simple algae, hibernating animals, and humans have in common? They all have internal rhythms that respond to the seasons. Follow Dr. Rosenthal as he explores the latest science and treatment of seasonal depression, illustrated with fascinating anecdotes and stories and delivered in his compulsively readable and eloquent style.' - Richard A. Friedman, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Medical College of Cornell University 'Winter Blues is a wonderful book. It is deeply knowledgeable from a scientific perspective, as one would expect from one of the world's leading authorities on mood disorders, but it is also a delight to read. Dr. Rosenthal writes beautifully about the human side of the seasons and our profound beholdenness to light, while at the same time providing an invaluable guide to handling the seasonal depressions that affect so many individuals.' - Kay Redfield Jamison, PhD, author of An Unquiet Mind and Exuberance
Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal's indispensable guide for readers who suffer from the "winter blues" is now more useful than ever. This authoritative book presents a wealth of new information on remedies for seasonal affective disorder (SAD), including recent advances in light box therapy, research on the effectiveness of antidepressants, and new recipes to counterbalance unhealthy winter food cravings. Dr. Rosenthal distinguishes among various degrees of the disorder, ranging from winter blues to full-blown SAD; provides a self-test that readers can use to evaluate their own seasonal mood changes; and offers helpful advice, coping tips, and resources.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

I wanted to see if I could make it through the winter here, as I wouldn't mind staying here to be closer to relatives. Unfortunately I developed the SAD here as well. Armed with this book, I can say I have survived. And if you have ever dealt with severe SAD, you know the feeling at the end of winter.
This book covers every aspect of SAD I can think of. Things I did not think were related were brought out in the book and I realized how they were impacting my life - and had been - for at least 20+ years when I lived in the Midwest. I had in the past been misdiagnosed with so many things to explain the recurring depressions, weight gain, fatigue and other symptoms that are SAD. Not that anyone wants to hear there is something wrong with them, it was a relief to me to finally find out what has been going on with me all these years, and moreover, how to treat it. I wish I had this information so many years ago. But, as the book points out, it is not uncommon to take years for many people to be diagnosed. It explained why I became so depressed in the Midwest but never had these episodes when I lived in Phoenix. Why I had to move away from Seattle but was happy in Austin. And so on. Reading the pages of the book, as well as others who had stories similar to mine, I felt very validated.
I am moving to a sunnier location, as the treatments for SAD help, but my case appears to be very severe and, I have the option to be able to move. This book has proved invaluable and I consider it a must-read to anyone who thinks they have SAD. I've recommended it several times already and will continue to do so.
