This timely and sensible book seems to me to be a model of what a casebook should be. It is clear without being simple. It is relatively brief. It embodies good listening to patients. It is scientifically up-to-date and well written and edited. It provides reasonably detailed and thoughtful examples across a solid group of major psychiatric diagnoses -- as well as across a few psychiatric and social categories other than diagnoses -- and examples of integrated, educated, and helpful biopsychosocial consideration and treatment of people. I recommend this book to all psychiatrists, young and old, and to our mental health colleagues and students, particularly, but not limited to, those who are actively or might potentially work with LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) patients or clients.
