From our regular book review column.

The first edition of this handbook was based on the very successful Clinical Handbook of Psychotropic Drugs by the same editors, currently in its 17th edition. It gave a concise overview of child psychiatric disorders and treatment, followed by a series of chapters describing the different drug classes, including indications for use, available drug strengths, dosing, pharmacokinetics, adverse effects, contraindications, and even a chapter on herbal products. It stood out thanks to its format, ease of use, and practicality.
