Review quote

"This book succeeds as a quick and easy introduction to the ICD-10 multiaxial system. Assessment and rating of disability and contextual factors are particularly helpful and straightforward. However, no attempt is made to compare and contrast the ICD-10 with the DSM-IV, and American psychiatrists will find much to quibble about. Still, no one will disagree with the need for a classification system that allows us to communicate more easily with our international colleaques." Doody's Journal and Doody's Quarterly
