A sympathic view of what is known about depression.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Malignant Sadness: The Anatomy of Depression (Paperback)
As a fellow sufferer from clinical depression I can honestly state that this is the best book on the subject I have been able to find. Whether you are a sufferer yourself, know someone who is, or just have an interest in the range of human experience then this book has something for you. Lewis Wolpert approaches the subject from several different directions, allowing the subject to be informed by his own experience not just as a depressive but also as a scientist and a thinker. You won't find any half-arsed psychobabble here - just intelligence, erudition and compassion.

What I found remarkable is that the jewish people are the noted exception to the usual disparity between male and female patients in that the incidence of depression in Jewish men is as high as that of women.
