Review quote

"Coeditors Robert Spitzer, Michael First, Janet Williams, and Miriam Gibbon have done a splendid job of putting together case reports of 33 psychiatric patients who have been evaluated by their clinicians, the majority of whom are psychiatrist. The wealth of the clinical material left in awe that the contributors can share so much of their experience in such a limited amount of space."-- "Stephen C. Scheiber, M.D., psychiatrist.com", "February, 2008"show more
