Review:

"It has been expertly coauthored by Andreasen and Black to give a well-written and attractively produced text that is bursting with information. The scope of the text is remarkably broad, from the historical underpinnings of psychiatry to more recent developments in evaluation and treatment. The inclusion of clinical vignettes and an appendix that provides a range of rating scales and questionnaires adds interest and usefulness."- "Ronan McIvor, Consultant Psychiatrist, British Journal of Psychiatry," "December 2002"
