Editorial Reviews

"... a remarkably complete and useful desktop book . should be required reading for most clinicians whose practice involves the interface of psychiatric and hospital-based medicine . a useful text for virtually all psychiatrists and psychiatric residents . exceedingly valuable for hospital attending and primary care physicians who do not have ready access to psychiatric consultants, particularly in the emergency department setting.." -Mark H. Fleisher, M.D., University of Nebraska College of Medicine, Omaha
