I will confess up front that I am a psychopharmacology geek. Of the many resources available to keep abreast of new developments in the field, I have a special fondness for good handbooks. A good handbook should provide a readable, concise overview of the field, while being easy to consult in the course of a busy clinic day. This particular text may be pushing the upper limit of length for a handbook, coming in at just under 500 pages. However, it is definitely a handbook in spirit—it is chock full of practical, accessible information presented in a highly readable format.
