One concern is the overall sense that the book is composed of a patchwork of chapters, some providing comprehensive, practical reviews of a topic but others focusing on very narrow aspects of research that may not be as appropriate in a text designed to be a practical clinical reference. Some chapters lack information relevant to current clinical practice. For example, chapter 1, "Overview of Neuroleptic Use in Child Psychiatric Disorders," by Magda Campbell and Nilda M. Gonzalez, is a clearly written, well-organized review of neuroleptics, choices of drugs, dosage, side effects, and the disorders that merit consideration of neuroleptic therapy. Perhaps because this book was published in 1996, there is no mention of the growing and important use of the more recently marketed antipsychotics such as clozapine, risperidone, and olanzapine in childhood and adolescence and their potential role in the treatment of childhood psychiatric disorders. Although there may be few related studies of these agents in pediatric populations, the current common use of these agents—often in preference to earlier-generation neuroleptics—makes this discussion incomplete.
