From the Inside Flap:

“A powerhouse of practical information ... packed with well-researched monographs and comparative tables that are both detailed and succinct. Unrivalled in scope ... For practitioners encountering unfamiliar treatment scenarios, the section on yet-to-be-approved new psychiatric therapies will be particularly useful and is not easily found elsewhere. The sections on switching and augmentation strategies ... provide invaluable guidance. Drugs are fully indexed by generic and brand name and by class. Coloured icons make it easier to locate specific parcels of information. This outstanding and unique handbook is as rich in useful content as many full textbooks.” Barbara Jovaisas, clinical editor at the Canadian Pharmacists Association and staff pharmacist at the Ottawa Hospital, Ottawa, Ontario, in Canadian Pharmacists Journal “The best handbook of psychotropics I’ve ever read. Practical, succinct, and better than anything else available. The comparison charts are easy to use and unique to this handbook and help me select the right medication for the patient.” Carl Anderson, MD, Private Practice, Bronx, NY “An invaluable quick reference guide for the busy clinician.” B. E. Leonard in Human Psychopharmacology: Clinical and Experimental “Comprehensive... clearly and consistently organized... an ideal resource for rapid and straight-forward retrieval of essential clinical information... a ‘must have’ for those who work in mental health care.” Marshall Cates, PharmD, in Annals of Pharmacotherapy “Should be available at all nursing stations.” C. Lindsay DeVane, PharmD, in American Journal of Health Systems Pharmacy
