Customer Reviews

Excellent, concise resource.  April 7, 2011

This textbook provides many charts and quick references to a broad number of psychiatric medications, but also goes beyond just a discussion of medical treatment. It provides a clear understanding of the underlying neurobiology of various psychiatric medications, presumed mechanisms of action of drugs, and practical treatment guidelines. The textbook also offers a nice review of psychiatric diagnosis with an eye towards medication treatment. The textbook is written in an exceptionally clear style and is current in terms of theories and research. I recommend it to all of my graduate students.
