An excerpt:

“One of the many great features of this book is that even before it addresses specific disorders and medications, it provides the reader with a thorough background regarding the biology of psychiatric disorders. The authors give the reader a history of biological psychiatry, information on the psychodynamics of psychopharmacology treatment, a discussion of neurobiology (complete with easy-to-follow diagrams), and a chapter with the basic principles of psychopharmacology. Chapter 5, “Preliminary Diagnostic Considerations”, contains a section titled “Axis I and Axis II: Complex Interactions”. This is a particularly interesting section to read because it discusses how axis I and II disorders influence each other “in four different ways” (p. 60). The authors then discuss how these interactions influence behavior, biology, and treatment.”
