'The new Cambridge Handbook is simply indispensable ... The book will find a wide market. No clinical psychologist is going to want to be without it. Perhaps more importantly, many doctors will continue to dip into it from time to time, since one of the book's virtues is to be written in a generally jargon free manner, accessible to all health professionals. Journalists from the better papers will use it frequently, since it gives a quick synopsis of the current state of play on a vast range of topics which are rarely absent from the health pages. Finally, journal editors will find it a valuable address book when they need referees for the ever increasing flow of research papers in this fascinating field.' Psychological Medicine 'This book is a rich mine of information for the general practitioner ... The day I received it a student came to ask me for advice about essays. Putting the 'encylopaedic handbook' to its first test, we looked up a few keywords. There was a chapter on each one. Bite-size morsels of information, easily digestible, comprehensive. I shall certainly keep this book within easy reach for future reference.' Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine 'Easy to read; a practical book.' Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism
