This is a book that has the potential to be helpful to wide range of clinicians who treat psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents. But perhaps what is most valuable about this book is that it offers medication management strategies that are based on the authors' experience and wisdom. With some effort and a good library, facts, studies and general knowledge are relatively easy to obtain. However, to be able to have the equivalent of immediate supervision from these very experiences clinicians is truly a special contribution to this field. -- Journal of child and adolescent psychopharmacology.
