Depression and Diabetes, edited by Katon, Maj, and Sartorius, is a 180-page book detailing the evidence-based world literature on the interaction between depression and diabetes. The volume is well written and concise and will be a benefit to clinicians (especially primary care providers, psychiatrists, endocrinologists, and nurse specialists in mental health and in diabetes) and trainees (nursing students, medical students, and resident physicians).
The text is divided into 6 chapters covering the broad topics of epidemiology, pathogenesis, medical costs, treatment, management, and sociodemographic/cultural aspects of depression and diabetes with public health implications.
