Book Description

11 April 2013 1107686466 978-1107686465 4
With this fully revised fourth edition, Dr Stahl returns to the essential roots of what it means to become a neurobiologically empowered psychopharmacologist, expertly guided in the selection and combination of treatments for individual patients in practice. Embracing the unifying themes of 'symptom endophenotypes', dimensions of psychopathology that cut across syndromes, and 'symptoms and circuits', every aspect of the text has been updated to the frontiers of current knowledge, with the clarity of explanation and illustration that only Dr Stahl can bring. Integrating much of the basic neuroscience into the clinical chapters, and with major additions in the areas of psychosis, antipsychotics, antidepressants, impulsivity, compulsivity and addiction, this is the single most readily readable source of information on disease and drug mechanisms. This remains the essential text for all students and professionals in mental health seeking to understand and utilize current therapeutics, and to anticipate the future for novel medications.

Review

Reviews of previous editions: '… essential reading … I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who works with psychotropic drugs - or who has the task of teaching others about them!' American Journal of Psychiatry

'The clinically orientated chapters do an impressive job of bringing together the neuropathological basis and psychopharmacological approaches to psychiatric conditions. I would highly recommend this as a concise, entertaining and easily accessible source of information.' Addiction Biology

'If there is one basic psychopharmacology text for a practitioner or teacher of psychiatric medicine to own, this is it … Cleverly illustrated with simple cartoons, this book presents complex information in an easily accessible manner … [Stahl's] Essential Psychopharmacology is a first rate book.' The Lancet

'… an excellent basic textbook covering the key areas of psychopharmacology. Its concise and structured approach made reading enjoyable … I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to all psychiatric trainees.' Journal of Intellectual Disability Research

'As an MRC psychiatry student I have benefited enormously from studying this book. Stahl has allowed me to see the light in what I previously found to be a very complex subject … it has made a fascinating and fulfilling read.' International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry

'[Stahl's] Essential Psychopharmacology offers a wide range of readers an engaging and comprehensive view of psychopharmacology. It is highly recommended to both novice and experienced researchers, who stand to gain a new or renewed appreciation for the complexity and beauty of how the nervous system mediates the behavioural effects of drugs.' Contemporary Psychology

'The book is an excellent source of information for the art of prescribing psychotropic medications. This book belongs in every clinician's library and serves as a model of clarity for others.' Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica

'Medical students, psychiatry residents and fellows and experienced clinicians will find the style and content refreshing … I recommend this text as an extremely useful reference work as we enter the next decade of discovery in brain neurosciences and its role in clinical psychiatry.' Psychological Medicine

'We highly recommend this book both to general practitioners who may need information on general mechanisms of psychotropic drugs and to students that would like to learn more about basic psychopharmacology and its practical applications.' Clinical Neuropsychiatry

5.0 out of 5 stars Now an essential classic 15 Mar 2014
By Raka
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The essential classic for clinicians who want to understand, rather than just parrot guidelines.
The thinking man's psychopharmacology text - it activates the frontal lobes as well as reward pathways ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Exact Improvements I Had Anticipated from the Previous Edition 5 Jun 2013
By Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I had first read Dr. Stahl's Essential Pharmacology (3rd Ed.), I was absolutely fascinated with the presentation and wished that psychopharmacology was taught this way in medical school.

This latest edition does not disappoint either.

When the book arrived in the mail I was quite curious why the packaging for it was not as thick as I expected (readers of Stahl know how thick the previous edition was). That's because the book has been reformatted into a larger page size and some redundancy in the chapters was eliminated. I have to say I really like the new format; it's not quite a full sized textbook and in my opinion is perfect because neither textbook nor smaller-sized (yet Bible thickness) lend themselves to ease of transport.

As far as the actual content goes, readers will find that the book is very similar yet significantly updated as to not feel like one is reviewing the same book as the previous edition. I have only thus far given the book a cursory overview, but the ambiguities I noticed in the previous edition have been seemingly cleared up. Another fantastic aspect of the new edition is a more in depth analysis of specific receptor subtypes.

Dr. Stahl continues to show his great insight in biological psychiatry, and I highly rate his series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stahl is a mainstay for teaching psychopharmacology 25 May 2013
By Joan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this is far and away the most effective text for teaching students about psychopharmacology. it is clearly written for the educated "naive" in a graduate program, i.e., those students familiar with brain functions to a certain extent and needing to drill down more deeply to understand medications, pharmacy, and behavior connections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource 21 July 2013
By Fran Griffis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While Essential Psychopharmacology does not exactly make the topic easy, it is the most straightforward, understandable and useful book I have found. The book is well ordered and is written clearly. The schematic drawings have helped me make sense out of subject matter that is often delineated in multisyllabic science-speak.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive and Probably Worth It! 29 Aug 2013
By Danni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Stahl uses tons of illustrations,almost cartoon-like, which make this topic easier to grasp. Expensive,but really up to date and full of knowledge. Stahl also writes with a really people friendly manner-he's funny!
