I've just read this latest (5th) edition. Just like its predecessor, this text oozes with information and authority and I love its organized format. Many new and relevant studies have been included. Personally, it's worth the cost especially that new editions are produced every few years (the last one/4th edition was released in 2006). Highly informative!

Format: Hardcover
Janicak's book has long been one of the best psychopharm texts available. Unlike certain other popular texts which are full of glib optimism, simplifying assumptions, and pretty pictures, this text sticks firmly to clinical evidence. It has failed to gain market prominence partly because it is too expensive (I have not bought the latest edition yet for this reason). But that problem is linked to unnecessary length caused by the authors choice to devote large segments to describing DSM-IV definitions and distinctions. This makes the text long and heavy, full of material that is easily obtained elsewhere. In many ways this detracts from the more interesting questions about how pharmacological agents impact neurophysiology and ultimately affect symptoms. DSM-IV catechism is not what one is looking for in a pharmacology textbook. I am offering this criticism because I really think this is a major reason why this book has not become recognized more widely as THE standard text.
I wish publishers and authors would consider abbreviating this extraneous material.

I have just finished this book. I am preparing for the APA PEP exam to become a prescribing psychologist. I am also preparing to teach psychopharmacology in the Clinical Psychology Program at Antioch University, Seattle. I have read other books in the field. This book by far includes the most research and helpful information. Many books on psychopharmacology stick to introductory level principles and practices. This book gets more in-depth by presenting the research and discussing how to use multiple medicines as needed. I am going to keep this book as a reference and then update myself with additional research that has occurred in the past several years. This is a must read for any psychiatrist, other physician, prescribing psychologist, other prescribing professionals, and those with an interest in better understanding the field of psychopharmacology.

Very practical.
The clinical comments are very helpful with medications choices and applications.
The handbook is more down to the earth than Stahl's handbooks.
