This review is from: Seasonal Affective Disorder For Dummies (Paperback)
No need for a long review here. This is a great book on seasonal affective disorder, also known as SAD. It's written in the typical "For Dummies" format: uses layman's terms, icons througout the book to alert you to key points, organized in an easy-to-follow manner (i.e. paragraphs/ideas broken up in the chapters for easier "digestion" of the info).

Also typical of the "Dummies" books is the completeness. You'll learn the symptoms of SAD, if you have it, and what you can do about it. Some treatments covered in the book include:

-light therapy
-cognitive therapy
-exercise
-how to get better sleep
-changing your diet
-medications

As you can see, the book covers a lot of ground and most will no doubt learn a lot - I know I did. For instance, I found out that, according to the book page 222, that exercise and light therapy work EQUALLY well in treating SAD. Anyway, I say get it if you you want a good, general knowledge of SAD, and to find out what all your options are. Its a great resource!
