Review:

"This book provides comprehensive, up-to-date, easy-to-access information on every aspect of schizophrenia that clinically oriented readers would want in a single source. It reflects well the diverse and extensive experience of Mueser and Jeste, who are clinicians, researchers, and educators of great distinction."--Herbert Y. Meltzer, MD, Division Director, Psychopharmacology, Department of Psychiatry, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine

"This handbook is a landmark effort to give the working clinician portals of entry to the vast scientific and clinical literature on schizophrenia. The chapters provide accessible summaries, efficiently and sensibly organized by topic--from basic science, to assessment and treatment, to service systems, policy, law, and ethics. There is no other volume available with comparable breadth, accessibility, and sensitivity to the needs of the clinical practitioner. This work promises to be a key reference and resource for students and professionals for years to come."--Will Spaulding, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Nebraska/n-/Lincoln  "Although I have read (and written) many books about schizophrenia, I was highly impressed by the extensive array of topics that this volume addresses. It is remarkable in encompassing the complex scope of biological, psychological, and social features of this severe mental illness. The volume is distinctive in the way it interweaves scientific knowledge and practical living issues, medical and functional features, individual and population aspects, and somatic and rehabilitative interventions. I recommend this excellent handbook to both professionals and students. It will very likely be adopted as a text for trainees in psychiatry, psychology, social work, rehabilitation counseling, and other disciplines. This book informs, enriches, and inspires."--Henry A. Nasrallah, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine

"The last 20 years have seen extraordinary breakthroughs in our understanding and treatment of schizophrenia. This handbook manages to capture both the breadth and depth of these advances with impressive scholarship and élan. Written by international leaders in the field, this volume is an essential addition to the libraries of scientists and clinicians. It offers an unparalleled opportunity for students in multiple disciplines to peruse the current literature in a single, state-of-the-art volume. A major contribution to the clinical science of schizophrenia."/m-/Max Birchwood, DSc, Professor of Mental Health, University of Birmingham, UK

"It would not surprise me if this handbook quickly became the 'go-to' book on schizophrenia for researchers, clinicians, and students. This is one of those rare volumes that combine excellent depth (via the leading schizophrenia researchers in the world) with a breadth of topics that is second to none. The book goes beyond addressing basic science and treatment, covering such important areas as systems of care, special populations, and special topics. Anyone who treats or conducts research with this population should have this book on his or her shelf, and I will likely adopt it as a required text for my graduate seminar on schizophrenia."--David L. Penn, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill



"An extremely user-friendly distillation of the literature necessary to effectively understand and treat individuals with schizophrenia. A true gold mine! This valuable guide highlights the optimism that we can share with our patients and their families about the treatability of schizophrenia....It helps us digest the expertise and voluminous literature from leading authorities in the field by downsizing the coaching of these authorities into clinically applicable, bite-sized portions....The in-depth nature of the 61 chapters reveals how well planned this handbook istruly addressing key issues in a bio-psycho-social manner. The topics covered are very comprehensive in nature, yet succinct in a clinically relevant way, and they extend further than any other book I've encountered. New ideas for improved care and understanding will naturally flow from you as you read this text. Each chapter is tightly written, highlighting what practitioners need to know and including the most up-to-date findings, clinical pearls, and pertinent references and recommendations for further reading. Simply reading the Key Points section (major take-home" points for each area) included with each chapter makes it a very worthwhile activity. This handbook has very broad appeal and was written for any individual, student, practitioner, researcher, or policymaker who wants a comprehensive understanding of the illness of schizophrenia and its far-reaching impact on society. I highly recommend this jewel." (Psychiatry: Interpersonal and Biological Processes 2011-02-02)

"A timely, up-to-date, and comprehensive book addressing all aspects of schizophrenia. The editors, who are highly prominent health professionals, include a psychologist (Dr. Mueser) and a psychiatrist (Dr. Jeste). They have done an outstanding job of gathering a total of 91 clinicians from universities throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and several other countries to contribute a total of 61 chapters to this excellent book....This is a well-written, well-organized book that I highly recommend to all clinicians involved in the scientific, rational, and humane treatment of this disabling illness. The editors should be congratulated on an excellent job done in editing this book." (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry 2011-02-02)

"Each chapter is written in a clear, simple style, with a minimum of jargon and sparse references, followed by a useful summary of key points and a list of recommended further reading. It is an excellent format and it works well....The book's forte is in its comprehensive discussion of psychological and social aspects of treatment and service delivery, areas which are often neglected in psychiatric textbooks....The editors have succeeded in their objective to produce a collection of accessible and concise reviews on a comprehensive variety of clinical topics, particularly the social and psychological aspects of schizophrenia care." (The British Journal of Psychiatry 2011-02-02)

"This handbook is an exhaustive summary of the state-of-the-art in the field of schizophrenia....Each chapter is formatted creatively to meet multiple purposes and have a wide appeal, including key points that provide distilled take-home messages. Best of all, it has an easy reading style....The book is highly recommended to all levels of clinicians and trainees, and those who wish to get a substantive overview of the realities, hopes, and challenges of schizophrenia." (Psychological Medicine 2011-02-02)

"This comprehensive volume, edited by well-known researchers and clinicians, is a collective monograph presenting a current body of knowledge and evidence-based treatment of schizophrenia....Each chapter is written in plain language, by a world authority on the subject, and contains only essential references. Offering condensed information, having a uniform layout of the chapters and supplemented by a series of 'key points' summarizing its contents along with references and recommended readings, the book is a useful reference for busy clinicians....Overall, this book offers a very good overview of the schizophrenia arena and the editors are to be congratulated for pulling together such a useful book." (Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal 2011-02-02)

"Do we need another large book about schizophrenia? In the case of the Clinical Handbook of Schizophrenia, edited by Kim Mueser and Dilip Jeste, the answer is a resounding yes. The editors, a psychologist and psychiatrist who are preeminent schizophrenia treatment experts, set out to create an interesting and useful resource for clinicians. Overall, the editors have succeeded....This is a useful reference book for those interested in clinical and systems issues in the treatment of schizophrenia. Its strengths are in its worldwide perspective, its mostly successful effort to be brief and practical, its chapter-ending key point summaries, and its up-to-date list of references and recommended readings. It is a book I am likely to refer to often as we look to develop effective new programs in our service system." (Psychiatric Services 2011-02-02)

"Of the current books on schizophrenia, this one ranks as one of the best, as it is easy to read, comprehensively reviews a wide range of topics, succinctly summarizes key research findings, and formats information clearly to allow easy reference. The writing style is one of its greatest strengths, striking that rare balance between literary ease and scientific presentation. I would recommend this as an essential reference for any mental health professional treating individuals with schizophrenia....4 stars!" (Doody's Review Service 2011-02-02)

"Its inclusion of topics seldom covered with reference to schizophrenia, such as sexuality, post-traumatic stress disorder, recovery, and spirituality, makes it a comprehensive handbook indeed....The editors comment that the handbook is designed to meet the practical needs of clinicians, and for this purpose it will be very valuable....Recommended. Researchers/faculty and professionals/practitioners." (Choice 2008-10-03)
