This is a very useful and easy to read update that clinicians can use in daily practice as a quick reference. The book is written in a very practical, user friendly format, differentiating itself from other books in this category. It is a good reference for anyone dealing with psychopharmacology. * Doody's Book Review Service *
The Handbook of Essential Psychopharmacology, Second Edition contains a plethora of valuable knowledge: the text is succinct; the numerous tables throughout serve as quick reference material; and the reader can be challenged by the 'Q & A' sections. I highly recommend this handbook. * Massachusetts Psychiatric Society Bulletin *
