4.0 out of 5 stars Synopsis 19 Sep 2008
Drawing on four years of research and many case histories, Scarf shows how women often see themselves only in terms of their relationships so, at life's pressure points - adolescence, marriage, abortion, widowhood - women are suddenly faced with the task of being alone which can result in severe depression.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good book. 28 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was responsible for my seeking treatment for depression over 20 years ago. I happened to pick it up thinking it applied to my wife and recognized the symptoms of depression in myself instead. I was supprised to find it still in print after 20 years which I would think is pretty good evidence of it's value. As the title suggests, this book is aimed at women but the points she makes apply to men as well. It is well grounded in legitmate psychololgy though it may be somewhat dated now. Certainly the anti-depressants mentioned are no longer widely used if at all. Still it is a valuable book well worth reading. It isn't do-it-yourself therapy but it may help some people understand when to look for help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Englightening for all women 24 Aug 2008
By Bookworm2 - Published on
I read this book at a point in my life when I really needed it. It helped me to get through a rough patch and realize that others had a problem similar to mine. This is not a run-of-the-meal self-help book, but a scholarly treatise written for both lay persons and mental health professionals.
