From our regular book review column.

This book is written in a “straight talkin’, square shootin’” style by an expert in pediatric psychopharmacology from Harvard who knows kids and what their parents want and need to know. Information on a given topic is presented in more than one way and in several sections of the book, thereby reinforcing the basics about psychiatric medications for kids. Figures, tables, and boxed-off definitions provide clarity, and a question-answer format and case examples add interest for parents, teachers, and primary care physicians.
