This volume functions as a road map to the territory that lies at the border between medicine and psychiatry. Dr Asaad lends clarity and balance to an area that does not fit neatly into the established diagnostic and treatment framework. The text is divided into three parts, investigating somatoform disorders, factitious disorders and malingering, and medical conditions affected by psychological factors. Information is presented in a consistent format for easy access, with each disorder broken down into manageable components - from definition and clinical presentation to course and prognosis. Throughout the work, case studies and examples are included. As a result of Dr Asaad's presentation, students as well as new and established mental health practitioners have an essential vehicle for integration into the general health care team.
