Praise For The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression…
The New York Times
All encompassing, brave, and deeply humane...It is open-minded, critically informed, and poetic at the same time, and despite the nature of its subject it is written with far too much élan and elegance ever to become depressing itself.
The Boston Globe
Both heartrending and fascinating...the book has a scope and passionate intelligence that give it intrigue as well as heft.
The book for a generation...Solomon interweaves a personal narrative with scientific, philosophical, historical, political, and cultural insights...The result is an elegantly written, meticulously researched book that is empathetic and enlightening, scholarly and useful...Solomon apologizes that "no book can span the reach of human suffering." This one comes close.
