From the PublisherGeorge Koob, director of the division of Psychopharmacology, Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, Ca:
"The book has great merit in that the neurobiology of serotonin is quite extensive and has significant implications for our understanding of psychiatric disease and treatment. An update is sorely needed if it synthesizes the area by topic. The scope is comprehensive; I cannot think of anything missed. The utility would be as a reference source for research, and teaching at all levels from graduate school to medical school. Editors are outstanding scientists in the field. Choice of authors is equally outstanding. ... There is really nothing out there that pulls the world's literature on serotonin together. It is hard to get a real solid perspective on how serotonin does everything from impulsivity in suicide to depression to anxiety to mediate the effects of LSD and a tome that explains all of this would fill a niche. Readers would be graduate students, researchers, medical students, residents and university teachers."
Robert Carey, VA Medical Center, Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY, CA:
"There has been a major shift away from Dopamine to Serotonin so this is a very timely book proposal and the selected editors/authors are excellent choices to put together an important and successful book."
Boris Quednow, Psychiatric Hospital, University Zurich, Switzerland:
"I waited long for such a handbook of serotonin. This book was overdue for a long time and I think that it has the chance to be a bestseller in this area. The scope is indeed wide but appropriate and the utility of this book is - without any doubt - very high. The editors are highly experienced researchers in this field and the proposed authors belong to the leading scientists in serotonin research. "
