A welcome text that fulfills a niche for books on behavioural and social sciences written for medical students. Other books provide an introductory overview but a more detailed textbook is needed which clearly demonstrates a contemporary evidence base for the role of psychology in medicine. The book achieves this. The systems based approach and the focus on psychological skills are also welcomed. Author: Judith Anne Rock???
