Reviews

From the reviews:

"Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is certainly a construct with legs. ... The editors are very successful in covering a broad scope of information, allowing readers ... to fill in the gaps of their understanding about HRQOL concepts and methodology. This may be the greatest contribution of this book ... . There are a number of wonderful chapters that many researchers will find quite useful. ... I'm glad to have this resource in my library and will recommend it to my colleagues." (Charles E. Drebing, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 53 (13), 2008)

"The best cumulative work on the topic of health-related quality of life (HRQL) with regard to severe mental health diagnoses. ... This collaborative text adds to the knowledge about HRQL and encourages the reader to consider quality of life as a measurement of success. ... Technically, the book is well written and edited as well as attractively printed. ... it will be useful for all researchers of quality-of-life issues and particularly so for specialists in behavioral health." (Mark H. Fleisher, JAMA, Vol. 300 (4), July, 2008)
