Review quote

."..this work balances between brevity and comprehensiveness quite skillfully. The information in each section is presented in a logical, sequential manner and contains demographic, diagnostic, and treatment information (both psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic) that is current and factual. Finding information using the table of contents is easy, and illustrations and tables augment the text comfortably. There are many other quick reference books available in psychaitry, but this worthy effort should replace them and become the first choice for those seeking useful information but lacking the time to explore answers in other, more unwieldy books."--Doody'sshow more
