Reviews - What do customers think about Mood Swings Understand Your Emotional Highs And Lows?
Didn't expect preaching about God from a psychiatrist. Mar 8, 2006
This book is riddled with references to God, church, and the Bible. That isn't really my cup of tea, and I was very surprised - there wasn't anything about a religious basis on the outside of the book. And I'm not so sure about their claim that all depression is caused by being stuck in a stage of unresolved grief.
Easy to understand Jul 22, 2004
I bought this book on an impulse. I have family with ADD and manic depression. I read through the book in 2 days, because it was so easy to read and understand. The author does a lot of explaining that makes sense to me and it fits my family members who suffer from depression. This book turned a light on in my brain as to the "why, who and how comes" of depression. I am buying more of these to give as gifts. I recommend this to those who have loved ones who suffer and for those who suffer the pain of depression. It's not a cure, it's a door being opened.
An Excellent Resource for Professionals and Laymen! Jul 7, 2004
This book is written with the Christian in mind. People who struggle with mood swings will find a wealth of information and ideas on how to approach the problem. A terrific book that will make a great addition to any library!
For fundamentalist Christians only! Oct 25, 2002
This book was recommended to me by my physician. He wanted me to learn about different types of depression, their causes, and possible treatments. I read the review here and thought, "Well, I can take a little Christianity along with the psychologically helpful information the book will provide."
Boy, was I wrong! This book is a little bit of the basic psychology of depression and a bunch of Christian propaganda along with it...
This book ended up making me more depressed than before I read it. It's depressing to think that the majority of our country is populated with people who share his biased opinions about humanity.
Great reading with a Christian approach to understanding Sep 28, 2002
If you're asking God "Why (me, my child, spouse, parent)?", read this book!
