Reviews

"This is a much needed text for psychiatric epidemiologists."--Doody's "Overall, this book is an outstanding accomplishment. It fills a gap in the area of psychiatric research where there is a dearth of up-to-date, discipline-specific texts...an excellent text which sets a new benchmark for epidmeiological thinking in mental health research and goes a long way towards making the concepts of the discipline accessible to psychiatric researchers in general."--Psychological Medicine "If only all textbooks were written like this one. The authors of Psychiatric Epidemiology have assembled a highly cogent examination of the past, present, and possible future of psychiatric epidemiology, doing so in a way that anyone interested in the scientific method--including its limitations--can be immersed."--Psychiatric Times "This is a much needed text for psychiatric epidemiologists."--Doody's "Overall, this book is an outstanding accomplishment.
