LaBruzza and Mendez-Villarrubia have written a highly readable companion book to DSM-IV. The unique chapter dealing with mental illness in Hispanic cultures is particularly informative. This volume will be very useful for a wide range of mental health professionals. -- Malcolm B. Bowers, Jr., M.D., Yale University School of Medicine
Dr. LaBruzza goes beyond making DSM-IV user friendly. He brings a descriptive manual to life by placing it in the context of the broad scope of Western thought about the form and nature of mental illness. -- Peter Kramer, M.D., author of Listening to Prozac
A real lodestar for mental health professionals that explains the whys, wheres, and whens of our latest diagnostic bible and its development. This book, less than half the size of the DSM-IV, is a gem of information and erudition that should be within reach of any colleague involved in patient evaluation. -- Stephen Fleck, M.D., Yale University School of Medicine
