The editors have done an excellent job in organizing this text. The first section, The Fundamentals of Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Practice, consists of seven chapters on assessment, including psychiatric, neurobiological, psychological, and educational assessment. All of these chapters are well written and could be useful in an introduction to child psychiatry curriculum. The second section, Common Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Disorders, consists of chapters on only the most commonly encountered child and adolescent psychiatric disorders—ADHD leads the way, followed by disruptive behavior disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, and childhood trauma. This section could be a good resource for pediatricians or other clinicians who treat children and who need some basic understanding of the common child and adolescent psychiatric disorders. Other child and adolescent psychiatric disorders are then presented in the third section, Developmental Disorders. The fourth section, Special Problems in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, has chapters on important issues such as foster care, divorce, sleep problems, and the challenges of modern practice.
