Better than anyone I have read, Ghaemi lays out ways to help the reader both conceptualize mood disorders in general and to diagnosis them properly.

The author exhibits a rare quality for an academic in medicine, honesty.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Ghaemi is one of the foremost researchers, along with Goodwin, in the area of bipolar disorder. While this book is aimed at the professional audience, it is filled with nuggets of practical information, and provides the patient with an understanding of a rational approach to the treatment of bipolar disorder, including drugs, dosing, side effects, and psychotherapeutic treatment. It is concise and to the point.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Pipps on May 18, 2009
Format: Paperback
An exceptionally concise and coherent handbook which would appear to leave no room for misinterpretation or misdirection in the course of clinician reaching the diagnosis of a mood disorder. In particular, the full bipolar spectrum is propounded magnificently and with great clarity. This is a manual which is written for a professional audience, and therefore I believe the educated lay-reader will benefit significantly from reading this material over any similarly oriented mainstream press. I have, personally, found this book extremely helpful, and I would recommend it wholeheartedly as the most practical and readable book I have ever encountered on the subject of mood disorders.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author exhibits a rare quality for an academic in medicine, honesty. While most psychopharmacology texts contain the usual Big Pharma talking points,Ghaemi is not afraid to speak the truth. For example, when discussing the STAR D study results he states the truth; SSRIs,and SNRIs are barely more effective than placebo. He also has the honesty to accurately describe Olanzapine as "not a mood stablizer" despite FDA approval. Ghaemi does has some lapses in his otherwise very logical honest review of psychopharmacology for mood disorders. For example, he uses very convoluted logic , in an effort to make the point Neurontin still might be effective as a psychotropic. Overall, this book is excellent
