Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, DO, MA (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of this now classic textbook of psychopharmacology. This book documents the significant advances made in the past several decades in the molecular understanding of psychiatric treatment. Edited and written by thought leaders in psychiatry, this book remains an outstanding contribution to the contemporary practice of psychiatry.
Purpose: The purpose of producing this book, according to the editors, was essentially the same as for the first edition: "(T)the remarkable proliferation of information in this area - coupled with the absence of any comparable, currently available text." The editors and chapter authors have succeeded in developing an outstanding textbook with all new and updated material.
Audience: The intended audience is mainly psychiatrists. Psychologists, neuropharmacologists, psychiatry residents, neurologists, primary care physicians (since they prescribe the most psychopharmacologic agents) would greatly benefit from this book.
Features: This encyclopedic book includes 1,248 pages divided into four parts containing 65 chapters. Part I is essential reading for anyone wanting to keep abreast of the molecular physiology and pharmacology of drug action. Part II covers specific psychopharmacologic agents with reviews of animal and human data. Part III contains chapters on the neurobiology of specific psychiatric syndromes. Part IV reviews current psychopharmacologic treatment strategies for the major psychiatric syndromes.
Assessment: This book remains a showcase document of the maturing of this most interesting field. I highly recommend it.
