From the Back Cover:

Approximately ten per cent of Americans, mostly people in their twenties and thirties, suffer from winter depression, or seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

In this illuminating book, journalist Angela Smyth presents a detailed study of SAD – who gets it, what causes it, and how to cure it. She discusses treatment methods used in clinics and describes how increased exposure to light helps sufferers experience a major mood change and energy rise. Smyth also discusses how everyone can benefit by better use of available light in the home and office.

Angela Smyth, co-author of 'The Green Guide', is a medical journalist and author who has written extensively for health and science magazines. Chris Thompson, MD, is a leading researcher of the causes, effects and treatment of SAD.
