These 2 delightful volumes are written for patients and relatives of patients, although their information also would make them of interest to medical students and psychiatric residents. There is considerable overlap in topics—both have discussions of the brain and neurotransmitters, a review of medications used to treat depression, a review of psychotherapies used to treat these disorders, and a discussion of other treatments including ECT, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and vagus nerve stimulation. Both volumes include up-to-date information on newer antidepressants as well as other psychopharmacologic treatments, such as neuroleptics and mood stabilizers.
