"This edition, like the others, gives a clear and easy to read review of medication used in a range of psychiatric disorders. The book is structured around treatments for severe and enduring mental illness, minor mental health problems, sleep disorders, sexual problems and dependence and withdrawal... It is a credit to Dr. Healy that he can make such a complex topic as psychopharmacology easy to read, clear and engaging. If this book seems critical of the interests of 'big pharma' and the complicity of professionals in generating a market for psychiatric drugs, then maybe that is no bad thing." Nurse Education in Process, May 2009

Although the 4th edition was published in 2005 it does not mention many of the newer drugs like Lexapro,Trileptal, Abilify, Modafinil etc . I did not find the "User Issues" text boxes to be an innovation or of much help.
This is definitely not a book for quick reference. And it is expensive too!
