From the reviews

“All clinical trials with drugs […] have limited practical use without an easy means of extracting information rapidly and without error; i.e., practicing physicians need a suitable “database-physician interface” available at the bedside. This handbook can serve as such an interface.
Although it is primarily a handbook for clinicians, others including clinical pharmacists, clinical pharmacologists and all scientists involved in teaching, research, and drug development will regard it as a valuable information source.”

Barrington (Barry) G. Woodcock-Kloberdanz, BSc, PhD, HNC, DHabil, Roedermark, Germany, in International Journal of Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics, 2024

Praise for the book

“This book makes dry material more interesting and is pleasing to the eye… An abundance of new and old ideas, even for very savvy clinicians... An excellent purchase.”
M. M. Relja and M. Sachdev in Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology

“A ‘must-have’ for those prescribing psychotropic medications in children and adolescents. It remains by far the most user-friendly and comprehensive handbook available for prescribers, teachers, students, and others working or interested in the field of child and adolescent psychopharmacology.”
Pieter Joost van Wattum in Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

“Authoritatively and exhaustively compiles currently available information in a user-friendly form. The aim of the Handbook is to be a source of ‘fast facts’ for the busy aim it achieves splendidly.”
M. Gittelman, Editor of International Journal of Mental Health

“If you see children who are placed on psychotropic medications, this book clearly falls into your ‘must-have’ category.”
J. C. Courtney in Child Neuropsychology
