About the Authors
  • The Stahl's Illustrated books are a series of pocket-sized, mid-priced, themed volumes. They distil theoretical information from the Essential Psychopharmacology volume and combine this with practical data from the Prescriber's Guide. They are illustration heavy and designed to encourage speedy learning of both concepts and applications. The visual learner will find that these books make the concepts easier to master and the non-visual learner will appreciate the clear shortened text on complex psychopharmacological concepts. This new edition emphasises the impact antipsychotic medications are now known to have in the treatment of mania and depression, as well as in the management of psychosis. The Stahl's Illustrated series appeals to the widest possible audience of mental health professionals, and not just those with expertise in psychopharmacology.

    • High profile name in psychopharmacology
    • New series of highly illustrated atlases that are easily carried; each book addresses a specific topic in psychopharmacology
    • Supplemented with complementary tables and algorithms that provide clinical strategies as well as educational objectives and questions for the reader

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book uses a unique combination of visual and didactic approaches to help make complicated psychopharmacology concepts easy to master....It is useful for medical students, residents, physicians, and general psychiatrists. It can even be useful for psychopharmacologists, helping them in their teaching endeavors....Dr. Stahl's innovative educational style is evident, simplifying complicated topics to make them easy to understand for most readers. The book reviews a variety of neurobiological theories regarding depression, mania, and psychosis and is an excellent overview of the many various agents used in these disorders."
