Edited by top experts from the International Group for the Study of Lithium Treated Patients (IGSLi), Lithium in Neuropsychiatry: A Comprehensive Guide is a unique and vital resource for psychiatrists, psychopharmacologists, psychotherapists and neuroscientists.


This is a superb, comprehensive, and essential book on the medical and psychiatric uses of lithium.

This is an excellent and long needed book on the use of lithium. No resident should be allowed to finish training without knowing the information contained in this book. It should be required reading for all psychiatrists who treat seriously mentally ill patients. Michael J. Schrift, Doody's Reviews, February 2007 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
