"This well written book provides an authoritative and comprehensive synopsis of lithium use in various neuropsychiatric disorders. Written primarily for clinicians, this book should also appeal to interested researchers, psychopharmacologists, and experts in mood disorders. The book’s major strength is the depth of information and the breadth of subject material discussed. In hardcover, the text is attractive in layout and is free of production errors. Each chapter is followed by an exhaustive list of references. Given the amount of material covered and the size of the book, it is reasonably priced." - Verinder Sharma, Canadian Journal of Psychiatry 2006
