"Targeted at anyone dealing with the treatment of patients with affective disorders including students, residents, clinicians, nurses, and psychopharmacologists...This new edition captures the shift from the receptor model to brain circuits and signal transduction cascades. The book covers three topics: mood disorders, antidepressants, and mood stabilizers...Unique to Dr. Stahl's books are the illustrations, which have been expanded in this edition to capture the latest advances. Information is presented in conceptual form that makes it easier to read and understand." Doody's Review Service "Stephen Stahl is one of the most recognizable names in psychopharmacology. He is an inspiring teacher who has a knack for synthesizing complex scientific information for students, residents, psychiatrists, and nonmedical mental health practitioners...[H]e has started publishing psychopharmacology books that are not only very readable and up-to-date, but are in my opinion the most creatively illustrated texts of psychopharmacology. My trainees rave about his books and quote them often." --Journal of Clinical Psychiatry "All of Dr. Stahl's writing is characterized by clarity of presentation and a notable ability to transform complicated scientific principles into readily understood prose. Characteristically, he illustrates his instructions with informative, charming, and sometimes witty cartoon figures and diagrams. Dr. Stahl has a gift for teaching, and it is a pleasure to recommend this book." Journal of Clinical Psychiatry "Essential reading ... I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who works with psychotropic drugs - or who has the task of teaching others about them!" American Journal of Psychiatry "Essential Psychopharmacology offers a wide range of readers an engaging and comprehensive view of psychopharmacology. It is highly recommended to both novice and experienced researchers, who stand to gain a new or renewed appreciation for the complexity and beauty of how the nervous system mediates the behavioral effects of drugs."
