The book provides vital information in a systematic manner….This book is an invaluable resource for increasing awareness of SAD and it provides instruction about self-help strategies and user-friendly tools. I would recommend the Winter Blues SurvivalGuide as a resource for the general public and as a valuable guide for individuals with SAD and their families as well as for psychiatrists, residents, psychologists, and general practitioners.”
