'... a very welcome addition to the still relatively small number of reference texts in child and adolescent psychopharmacology ... the overall quality of the text is excellent ... this book makes an important contribution to a field where clinical practice tends to run ahead of the clinical evidence-base and remain relatively uninformed by basic neuroscience. This book should be essential reading for all child psychiatry trainees ...' Journal of Child Psychology '... a very well written and clearly set out book ... excellent book for anyone who wants a current insight into how medication is used in child and adolescent psychiatry, how different it may be to treatment in adults.' Journal of Pharmacy Practice and Research 'The chapters offer timely and expert overviews of a complex and evolving field.' Marc Sandrolini, Divine.com '... should serve as a good reference guide for the clinicians. I particularly liked the chapters on Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Anxiety and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.' Pediatric Rehabilitation 'This is an interesting and worthwhile book.'
