3 editions published in 1992 in English and French and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defining passions as "emotions that seize both the mind and body," clinical psychologist Witkin (Female Stress Syndrome, LJ 10/15/91) gives practical suggestions for gaining insight into the eight crucial passions named in the subtitle. Using information and anecdotes from her own surveys, Witkin describes each passion in a separate chapter, gives guidelines for distinguishing it from related emotions (e.g., despair from depression, love from infatuation), and provides suggestions for understanding and managing it. Witkin cautions against pseudopassions achieved through addictive substances and behaviors and includes a list of places for the addicted to seek help. Much of the information here is not new, yet Witkin's detailed presentation will give this book wide popular appeal. Recommended for self-help collections.-Lucille Boone, San Jose P.L., Cal
