DOODY’s 3 STAR - Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of Schizophrenia, Second Edition

“This is the second edition of a useful handbook on the diagnosis and management of individuals suffering from schizophrenia. With its bare bones approach, this small book offers a fairly up-to-date, honest, and balanced review of the issues, especially regarding the validity and boundaries of the syndrome as well as the advantages and disadvantages of first- and second-generation antipsychotics. Written and edited by leaders in the field, this update is a handy addition to the field.”

– Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A. (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine). “Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of Schizophrenia, Second Edition.” Doody’s Review Service. November 2011.
