Review quote

The present volume, massive and inclusive, representing the best efforts of knowledgeable colleagues, does not disappoint. Between the table of contents and the index, the clinician and/or investigator is certain to find up-to-date information on the desired topic .Every chapter contains data and ideas that add to one's understanding of mood-disordered patients, those at risk for such disorders, and those who should be patients but have not entered into a treatment relationship. Clearly, this textbook is a resource which no medical library and, ideally, no practitioner should be without. * The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease * Until now, there had been no comprehensive text dealing with mood disorders that integrated basic research across the spectrum of mood disorders and offered clinical guidance based largely on empirical research. This need is well met by the publication of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Mood Disorders This is an outstanding book, valuable as a desk reference for clinicians, psychologists, or psychiatrists as well as researchers interested in basic or clinical topics. * PsycCRITIQUES *show more
