Review from previous edition: "This book is a good reference for the interested clinician, health commissioner, or researcher thinking about tackling the problem of seasonal effects on mood." --BBMJ
"This compendium of excellent clinical and investigative contributions made by a respected group of experts is easy to read. It is impossible to discuss all aspects of SAD and seasonality in one book. However, without doubt, this book is the most comprehensive compilation of information I have encountered and can be recommended to everybody who is interested in natural sciences." --BThe Lancet
"The book has a clear style and provides a broad but detailed introduction to SAD. I would recommend it to clinicians seeing people with depressive disorders and to researchers in the field." --British Journal of Psychiatry
