Review of: The Noonday DemonPublished in: Contemporary Psychoanalysis
As well written as it is, The Noonday Demon is not an easy read and not for the faint of heart...
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.
At times, "The Noonday Demon"' is overwhelming, not just from the potent stories of depression sufferers but also by the sheer amount of information packed into the book. Still, Solomon's eloquent and honest style proves engaging.
