Review

Reviews of previous editions: '… essential reading … I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who works with psychotropic drugs - or who has the task of teaching others about them!' American Journal of Psychiatry

'The clinically orientated chapters do an impressive job of bringing together the neuropathological basis and psychopharmacological approaches to psychiatric conditions. I would highly recommend this as a concise, entertaining and easily accessible source of information.' Addiction Biology

'If there is one basic psychopharmacology text for a practitioner or teacher of psychiatric medicine to own, this is it … Cleverly illustrated with simple cartoons, this book presents complex information in an easily accessible manner … [Stahl's] Essential Psychopharmacology is a first rate book.' The Lancet

'… an excellent basic textbook covering the key areas of psychopharmacology. Its concise and structured approach made reading enjoyable … I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to all psychiatric trainees.' Journal of Intellectual Disability Research

'As an MRC psychiatry student I have benefited enormously from studying this book. Stahl has allowed me to see the light in what I previously found to be a very complex subject … it has made a fascinating and fulfilling read.' International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry

'[Stahl's] Essential Psychopharmacology offers a wide range of readers an engaging and comprehensive view of psychopharmacology. It is highly recommended to both novice and experienced researchers, who stand to gain a new or renewed appreciation for the complexity and beauty of how the nervous system mediates the behavioural effects of drugs.' Contemporary Psychology

'The book is an excellent source of information for the art of prescribing psychotropic medications. This book belongs in every clinician's library and serves as a model of clarity for others.' Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica

'Medical students, psychiatry residents and fellows and experienced clinicians will find the style and content refreshing … I recommend this text as an extremely useful reference work as we enter the next decade of discovery in brain neurosciences and its role in clinical psychiatry.' Psychological Medicine

'We highly recommend this book both to general practitioners who may need information on general mechanisms of psychotropic drugs and to students that would like to learn more about basic psychopharmacology and its practical applications.' Clinical Neuropsychiatry
