"[The] editorial teamwork for this spectrum of disorders provides a comprehensive and enlightening understanding for what almost all of us in psychiatry deal with daily... The reader's responsibility in an outstanding work such as this is to actively integrate the entire material rather than turning only to the segment matching a favorite and familiar perspective or theory."-- "Psychiatric Times"
