The fourth edition is bang up to date, with many changes from previous editions, and remains fresh and interesting to read."--Jennifer Eastwood, Honorary Life President, U.K. SAD Association

Readers of the fourth edition will find a treasure trove of fascinating scientific information combined with invaluable practical guidance for overcoming this common, much-misunderstood problem."--Chris Thompson, MD, FRCP, FRCPsych, Chief Medical Officer, Priory Hospitals Group, United Kingdom

I wanted to see if I could make it through the winter here, as I wouldn't mind staying here to be closer to relatives. Unfortunately I developed the SAD here as well. Armed with this book, I can say I have survived. And if you have ever dealt with severe SAD, you know the feeling at the end of winter.
This book covers every aspect of SAD I can think of. Things I did not think were related were brought out in the book and I realized how they were impacting my life - and had been - for at least 20+ years when I lived in the Midwest. I had in the past been misdiagnosed with so many things to explain the recurring depressions, weight gain, fatigue and other symptoms that are SAD. Not that anyone wants to hear there is something wrong with them, it was a relief to me to finally find out what has been going on with me all these years, and moreover, how to treat it. I wish I had this information so many years ago. But, as the book points out, it is not uncommon to take years for many people to be diagnosed. It explained why I became so depressed in the Midwest but never had these episodes when I lived in Phoenix. Why I had to move away from Seattle but was happy in Austin. And so on. Reading the pages of the book, as well as others who had stories similar to mine, I felt very validated.
I am moving to a sunnier location, as the treatments for SAD help, but my case appears to be very severe and, I have the option to be able to move. This book has proved invaluable and I consider it a must-read to anyone who thinks they have SAD. I've recommended it several times already and will continue to do so.
