It is a major contribution to the literature on mental illness."--William Styron, author of "Darkness Visible"An excellent book. It reflects not only the depth and breadth of the author's scientific and clinical contributions to the study of moods, but captures, in a wonderful way, the crucial role of moods in human nature and society....Anyone interested in moods, or disorders of moods will find this an informative, important and engrossing book."--Kay Redfield Jamison, author of "An Unquiet Mind"A most graceful introduction to the science of mood, by one of the world's experts."--Peter D.
