Media Reviews

'Dr. Rosenthal, a pioneering researcher who helped put seasonal depression on the map, is also a gifted teacher and storyteller. What do simple algae, hibernating animals, and humans have in common? They all have internal rhythms that respond to the seasons. Follow Dr. Rosenthal as he explores the latest science and treatment of seasonal depression, illustrated with fascinating anecdotes and stories and delivered in his compulsively readable and eloquent style.' - Richard A. Friedman, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Medical College of Cornell University

'Winter Blues is a wonderful book. It is deeply knowledgeable from a scientific perspective, as one would expect from one of the world's leading authorities on mood disorders, but it is also a delight to read. Dr. Rosenthal writes beautifully about the human side of the seasons and our profound beholdenness to light, while at the same time providing an invaluable guide to handling the seasonal depressions that affect so many individuals.' - Kay Redfield Jamison, PhD, author of An Unquiet Mind and Exuberance
