With such caveats in mind, the tone set at the outset comes across as overly enthusiastic, making me unable to backslap and high-five in the name of the field’s scientific good standing. For example, an early chapter on panic disorder, while useful and concise, seems prematurely authoritative, given the minuscule literature specifically about juveniles with this disorder, the fact that little developmental consideration has been given to its nosology and natural course, or that extensive pharmacological recommendations are endorsed with scant or absent empirical support. Similar limitations color the approach suggested for treatment-resistant depression, for the use of novel antidepressants in an array of disorders, or for the long-term management of youngsters with schizophrenia, to name a few. For readers not entirely familiar with the field, it can prove challenging to disentangle what in the end is but a single individual’s recommendations (even if that individual is one as experienced as Dr. Kutcher) from what is based on published studies in which the data are critically reviewed. The ambiguity is also palpable in the many footnotes to otherwise excellent tables, which suggest that information has been partly compiled from the author’s own clinical experience. The fact that each chapter ends with a small list of "suggested readings" (a series of review papers and other books), rather than the more formal "references," "bibliography," or "literature cited," further contributes to the difficulty in telling excitement and experience from supporting evidence.
