Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bradley R. Cutler, MD (Edward Hospital and Health Services)
Description: In today's environment of rapidly occurring medical advances and the inordinate amount of information about these developments, it is essential to have a reliable source that explains key information in a complete, yet concise manner. This is the second edition of a well-received book on biploar disorder first published in 2005 that does just that.
Purpose: The purpose is to elucidate the current standards for assessing and treating adults with bipolar disorder.
Audience: Intended primarily for healthcare professionals, this book also is exceptionally helpful for patients suffering from bipolar disorder and their family members.
Features: The first of the four chapters introduces basic concepts essential to bipolar disorder. Chapter 2 discusses the appropriate diagnosis and assessment, chapter 3 focuses on biological treatment, and chapter 4 highlights psychosocial treatments. Each chapter begins with several questions that are answered in the subsequent pages. By contemplating the answers to these questions, readers are likely to retain crucial information. Each page contains useful definitions and facts that supplement the main text. Throughout the book are sections written from the perspective of patients who are struggling with symptoms of bipolar disorder; such real life examples give a deeper understanding of how patients suffer from and cope with this illness. Excellent tables and useful diagrams also populate the pages of the book. Finally, each chapter concludes with key concepts that help summarize the information. In addition, the book contains three appendixes, a glossary, references, and an index.
Assessment: The authors achieve their goal to near precision with this book. With a plethora of information regarding bipolar disorder available to professionals and patients, a book that clearly discusses assessment and treatment is an indispensable resource. This is that resource.
