"Manic-Depressive Illness stands above other selections in the field because of its organization and the clarity of presentation, in addition to the way it reveals the most cutting-edge thinking in the field. In sum, these attributes, when stitched together, render this book the authority in its field."--The Electric Review


"This is the Bible of manic-depressive illness and recurrent depression. It is the secure basis for all kinds of scientific and clinical expeditions. It unifies an immense past knowledge with the standards of the present and creates the roadmap for the future. In this book, no field and no aspect of mood and mood-related disorders remain uncovered."-Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h. c. Andreas Marneros, Psychiatric University Clinic, Halle-Wittenberg/Germany


"This definitive text on MDI/bipolar disorders documents what we have learned circa 2006, presents it clearly and logically, and should stimulate serious students of these disorders to seek and learn more."--Doody's, a 5 Star Review


"...Goodwin and Jamison have harvested the intellectual growth which the earlier volume has spawned and published an extraordinary second edition. Here the authors capture once again the whole range of the current views of these disorders in a way that points to the future, not only for those who treat people with these recurrent illnesses but for all interested in understanding the enormous scientific growth that the psychobiology of affect has experienced in the last decade and a half. This book has no peer. It again has set the standard by which all textbooks in psychiatry will be judged."--Eric R. Kandel, MD, University Professor of Physiology and Cell Biophysics, Psychiatry, Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at Columbia University and winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize for Medicine


"In a dazzlingly lucid, extensively researched, and amazingly comprehensive display of scholarship, this book remains the authoritative masterpiece on manic-depressive illness. The authors have mastered the complex jargon of the geneticist, the neuroscientist, and the futurist, covering pertinent studies from the drosophila circadian clock mechanisms to the growing neuropathological findings in post-mortem brains. It truly is a masterpiece of writing clarity."--Floyd Bloom. MD, Professor Emeritus, Molecular and Integrative Neuroscience Department, The Scripps Research Institute, and former Editor-in-Chief of the journal Science


"We are grateful to have an updated edition of the classic work on bipolar disorder; with great expertise and fine judgment the authors have admirably condensed the findings of the exponential development in the literature and international scientific endeavor into a single volume. Like the previous edition, it sets the gold standard for the general reader, students, teachers, scientists, health care professionals, and for patients and their relatives."--Jules Angst, MD, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, University of Zurich, Switzerland

"It is still true that there is nothing quite like this textbook. Anyone with a clinical, personal, research, or academic interest in mood disorders should obtain a copy."--Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
