Reviews

`Schizophrenia is a key psychiatric illness, which raises challenges for diagnosis, assessment and treatment. Given the prevalence and difficulty in treating schizophrenia, this forms an essential contribution to the Oxford Psychiatry Library series. [Do you think this would make a useful contribution to the literature?] Yes - this would provide a reference for different aspects of schizophrenia important to medical students and the practicing clinician. There is currently much interest in novel treatments for schizophrenia including CBT and these appear to be covered in this volume as well as important information on symptoms, diagnosis and special populations. The section on co-mordity I believe it also essential, given the practical problems in treatment of this group and also very recent and compelling evidence concerning the role of substance misuse.' Dr Catherine Harmer, University Department of Psychiatry, Warneford Hospital, Oxford, UK `Everyone knows of David Castle and he is very well respected... He has a very comprehensive knowledge of schizophrenia. ' Dr Philip D. Harvey, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, USA
