    A reviewer

    This is a very well researched, thorough, and comprehensive book about commonly used psychiatric drugs. It doesn't ramble and packs a lot of information into fewer than 300 pages. It seems to be a pretty much objective description of the characteristics of these drugs, though I get the impression that the author has a slight bias toward emphasizing the negative effects of these drugs rather than the positive. It is a very well written book that is impressive in the amount of information that it ties together in a concise manner, and it will be of interest to both the expert and the lay person, where both have an interest in psychopharmacology.
