"... a remarkably complete and useful desktop book ... should be required reading for most clinicians whose practice involves the interface of psychiatric and hospital-based medicine ... a useful text for virtually all psychiatrists and psychiatric residents ... exceedingly valuable for hospital attending and primary care physicians who do not have ready access to psychiatric consultants, particularly in the emergency department setting...." -Mark H.
