Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eileen Trigoboff, RN, CS, DNS (Buffalo Psychiatric Center)
Description: This book covers a wide array of psychiatric problems and current issues. There are 73 brief, informative chapters, written in outline form, and three appendixes. This is the second edition; this text was first published in 1984.
Purpose: The purpose is to help practitioners at every level. The objective of providing a practical guide through the many niches in psychiatric nursing care is an important one and fairly well served by this text.
Audience: The audience spans beginners through seasoned clinicians, and the book is helpful for every level of nursing practice, as intended. Dr. Lego is a psychiatric nurse with experience as a private practitioner and educator and is therefore a credible authority in the subjects covered.
Features: The illustrations in the text are minimalistic with no use of color, and there are few diagrams or drawings.
Assessment: The quality of the text is average, mostly because of the print, typesetting, and black/grey format. The outline presentation of the material does make the text useful in that whole topics may be covered briefly. However, because of the little discussion available, there is little texture and depth to the material. It best serves as a basic psychiatric text for quick reference. There is certainly enough new material in the field of psychiatric nursing to justify this second edition. In the 12 years since the first edition, there have been further developments in the specialty as a result of research and clinical experience; these topics are covered.
