'The idea of a highly accessible resource on depression is a good one...It fills an important gap in the literature and represents a very helpful addition to the library of clinicians - expert and non-expert alike - who could benefit from an accessible, up-to-date primer (or refresher) in the formulation, diagnosis and treatment of depression' - Stephen Swallow, Ph.D., Private Practice, Oakville, Ontario 'While there have been lengthy handbooks and a variety of specialized books, I do not think anyone has had quite the idea of writing a primer. It combines research and practice in a very interesting manner...The up-to-date research is one of the major strengths. The authors clearly know their material and are conversant with the major findings of the field...It reflects a masterful knowledge of the current literature and communicates it very well' - Ed Beckham, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist.
