An overview of all major psychiatric illnesses and their drug treatments. Expert advice given in layman's terms. This book is awesome for patients, practitioners, and any curious mind. It got a little wordy toward the end, so I ended up skipping a bit, but overall it's a great educational read and an even better reference. Thank you, Dr. Gorman, for this encompassing work. Thank you so very much.

A decent overview of several treatment options for depressive disorders. Puts many medications often used in bipolar treatment under schizophrenia for some reason, found that odd, and mildly misleading to the uninformed. Do you really want to read a book and say "hey why is my mood stabiliser a schizo drug?" Should provide more coverage of psychosis treatment in bipolar.

As expected this was meant as a pharmaceutical digest only, there are no alternative medicine suggestions here. It gives some side effects, as well as the medical model course of treatments, but does not go far enough in discussing the side effects and long term damage of psychotropics, in my opinion.
