The best handbook pf psychotropics I've ever read. Practical, succinct, and better than anything else available."
The comparison charts are easy to use and unique to this handbook and help me select the right medication for the patient. --Carl Anderson, MD, Private Practice, Bronx, NY
The Clinical Handbook of Psychotropic Drugs is intended as a handy guide for practitioners rather than an in-depth guide for researchers.
Information on each drug or group of drugs is compressed into a few brief clear sentences, which are colour-coded... This compact arrangement makes the book very easy to use for quick reference purposes.
There are printable PDF files of patient information sheets, which could prove extremely useful for handing out to service users and carers. Most clinical, medical or nursing libraries will have enthusiastic users for this book. --Martin Guha, former Librarian, King s College London, Institute of Psychiatry, London, UK, in Reference Reviews, Vol. 28, 2014
(A) user-friendly and practical resource guide for using psychotropic drugs in any setting. ... As a psychiatrist who routinely prescribes medications, I find this handbook invaluable. ... It is the most comprehensive book on this topic that I have come across. --Corey Goldstein, MD (Rush University Medical Center) in Doody's Listings and Reviews, Dec. 2013
