Dr. Stahl's book 'Essential Psychopharmacology: Neuroscientific Basis and practical Applications' is a fantastic book! It is lucid, simple, jargon free with fabulous illustrations. The simplicity and the clarity of his style are brilliant! He is one of the few psychiatrists that appear to have a considerable grasp on neuroscience and understands more that the prescription pad and the five minutes drive-by visit that psychiatrists provide to their patients. That in return has rendered their field into a pit-stop for drive-by prescriptions. I only hope that Dr. Stahl is truly independent of the pharmaceutical companies and is not influenced by their erratic studies and corrupt system. Unfortunately, most psychiatrists do not keep up with the latest developments in the field as Dr. Stahl appears to do. They have abandoned psychotherapy, and have become compliant agents of the pharmaceutical companies in order to make a good living. This type of ethics has converted them into an extinct dinosaurs drowning into an eroding profession. Kudos to Dr. Stahl on a marvelous book!!

I was recently writing a paper on the side-effects of ADs for an undergraduate honors class, and throughout my mining of the journals, I constantly found myself referencing this book for clarification and guidance. The author could not have presented the information in a clearer fashion, providing, easily, the most comprehensive and thorough book on general psychopharmacology that I found while doing my research. If you're looking for an understanding of the pharmacology of these things which are quickly becoming our social saviors, I highly recommend this clear and concise, yet highly informative and technical guide.

As a practicing school psychologist, I often work with children who are taking psychotropic medications for a myriad of problems ranging from attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to schizophrenia. Essential Psychopharmacology provides an indispensible guide to understanding the neurological basis of psychiatric disorders and the mechanism of action of those psychotropic drugs used to treat these disorders. The color graphics are not only well done; they greatly enhance the learning process of the reader. Text is very readable and informative. Also alerts reader to possible dangerous drug interactions. Self-assessment tests are also included and may be taken, if desired, for continuing medical education (CME) credits. Stahl has provided the reader with an excellent introduction to psychoparmacology.
