Writing for the estimated 12 million Americans who have battled or who are currently facing depression, Goldberg (psychiatry, Columbia Univ.) answers the questions that are most often asked by depressed patients and their families. In an easy-to-understand question-and-answer format, he discusses the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatments of depression and other mood disorders. Special considerations such as suicide, elderly and adolescent cases, bereavement, and questions of law are also considered. Although the addition of an index would have made this volume more accessible, it is nonetheless a valuable resource for most general collections.- Linda S. Greene, Chicago P.L.
