Excellent case descriptions bring the abstract concepts to life.... [T]he information provided is relevant and to the point, with excellent instruments for clinicians to use in day-to-day practice...It will be invaluable to students during an initial psychiatric experience. Overall, this is a readable, easy-to-understand, and helpful basic text for students, or `refresher' for practicing clinicians." -- The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
