Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Easton, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: Most clinicians will find this psychopharmacology book useful in helping them to understand the area better. It is written in a very matter-of-fact way, making it easier to understand complicated issues. There is a thorough discussion of the many unanswered and unexplained findings in this burgeoning new area.
Purpose: The intent is to present the fundamentals of schizophrenia neurobiology and treatment in a simplified and readily readable form.
Audience: Intended for those interested in the psychopharmacological treatment of psychosis and schizophrenia, the book is useful for medical students, residents, physicians, and general psychiatrists. It can even be useful for psychopharmacologists, helping them in their teaching endeavors.
Features: The book provides condensed overviews of schizophrenia and psychosis, the symptoms, genetics, and neurobiology. It reviews pharmacological treatments, the mechanism of action of first and second generation antipsychotics available both in the U.S. and abroad, as well as medications presently in development.
Assessment: Based on Stahl's Essential Psychopharmacology: Neuroscientific Basis and Practical Applications, 3rd edition (Cambridge University Press, 2008), this book presents Dr. Stahl's innovative educational style, simplifying complicated topics making them easily understandable for most readers. The book reviews a variety of neurobiological theories regarding schizophrenia and psychosis and is an excellent overview of the many antipsychotics.
From the Publisher
"Stephen Stahl is one of the most recognizable names in psychopharmacology. He is an inspiring teacher who has a knack for synthesizing complex scientific information for students, residents, psychiatrists, and nonmedical mental health practitioners....[H]e has started publishing psychopharmacology books that are not only very readable and up-to-date, but are in my opinion the most creatively illustrated texts of psychopharmacology. My trainees rave about his books and quote them often."
—Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
