I was most impressed?with the lithium and [carbamazapine] booklet[s] for patients. Not only is the information of those booklets obviously accurate but they are written in a manner that should be easily read by the average lay person, which of course is a major accomplishment in medical writing. -- A psychiatrist, South Dakota, 1989
From the Publisher
One in a series of concise, easy-to-understand, up-to-date booklets on major mental illnesses and their treatments. There is a lot of information circulating, and it is difficult to separate the useful from the trivial. A team of results-oriented clinicians wrote each of the guides. They draw on their own research findings and their own experiences working with patients and sort through studies done by other clinicians to present information on the latest, most efficient, effective treatments known. There is background information on each illness, often some self-help suggestions, and always the answers to commonly asked questions. Whether you need the information for yourself, a family member, a friend, a colleague, or a patient, one of these guides will prove invaluable.
