`An excellent, very accessible handbook, written and edited by major authorities in the area of pediatric psychopharmacology.'
Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal
`Well summarized and referenced ... excellent.'
American Journal of Psychiatry
` Thorough, entirely up-to-date, balanced and humane ... an excellent source of information ... should become the standard.'
Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry
`An easy reference for treating difficult or infrequently seen cases.'
Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
`The book is clearly written. The style is confident, `punchy', and surprisingly uniform for a multi-author book, which indicates good editing. I believe the book is best used as a `ready reference'. The consistent format across chapters, abundant subheadings and concise prose mean that it does not take long for the reader to find what he or she is looking for. ... this book can be confidently recommended to all health professionals who prescribe psychotropics to young people: child psychiatrists and child psychiatry trainees, `behavioral paediatricians', general psychiatrists whose practice may include youngs persons, and many general practitioners. All medical libraries and pharmacies should also have a copy.'
Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, 33:6 (1996)
