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.

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.

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

This book is very useful...most than anyone in this field. I've working as a clinician and researcher in the area of mood disorder for almost 10 years and I haven't found anything like this book before.
It is precise, with clinical vignettes of real patients for almost every chapter. the author doesn't have fear to gives us his point of view about diagnostics, treatment and the last evidence about mood disorders.
Despite my experience in the field I found that each chapter has something fresh, new.
In the second edition, Ghaemi includes all the new evidence given by the latest and largest clinical trials: STAR*D for depression and STEP-BD for bipolar disorder, and he did this is in a really concise and easy-to-read way.
Not only for medical students or psychiatry residents but also for experts in the field, this book could be a great fresh air over the windows of their daily clinical practices.
