"A Deeper Shade of Blue
takes great steps to provide us with a clear road map to a more complete understanding of depression during the childbearing years...Failure to recognize and treat [this] depression...cannot be an option."
-- from the Foreword by Lee S. Cohen, M.D.
"This book is unique because it discusses depression within the context of women's health needs, but it will be useful for anyone seeking in-depth information about the disease. Highly recommended."
-- Library Journal
"Timely and critical. A lot has been written about postpartum depression -- but very little about depression pertaining to the entire process of childbearing and rearing. Dr. Nonacs has done a fantastic job of illuminating and elucidating this condition, in prose that is at once authoritative and empathic. I am thankful for her book in particular and her work in general."
-- Lauren Slater, author of Opening Skinner's Box: Great Psychological Experiments of the Twentieth Century
