From our regular book review column.

There are numerous books about schizophrenia, most of which are edited volumes with multiple authors focusing on different topics. This book by Heinrichs is one of the most scholarly treatises by a single author that I have read in the past decade. What makes it unique is that it is written by a research neuropsychologist and that it attempts to integrate a vast array of clinical and research findings regarding the etiology and pathophysiology of schizophrenia.
