This fact-filled monograph is part of the Oxford Psychiatry Library series. Written by two distinguished experts in the field, Michael Van Ameringen and Mark Pollack, it offers a thorough overview of the subject. Topics covered include diagnosis, neurobiology, clinical features, pharmaco- and psychotherapy, clinical management, and self-help resources. Its sleek, slim exterior, similar in size to a Zagat Survey and with color reminiscent of a Michelin Guide, promises an experience of a handy guide to a complex subject. Unfortunately, its interior is surprisingly difficult to navigate.
