Review quote

"This is an excellent accompaniment to the textbook. Anyone who is preparing for the written examination in addiction psychiatry would be foolish not to use this study guide. It is a convenient way to reinforce and consolidate the knowledge obtained from reading the textbook."-- "Doody Enterprises, Inc", "March 2009"show more
