Since this title was first published, the emergence of operational criteria for mental illnesses and evidence-based medicine have constrained the way mental health issues can be presented. The result is that everything from transsexualism to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder is presented here as though there is little controversy, when almost everything the authors tackle is in fact contested.

Who is it for? Nurses, social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists in training.

Presentation: Attractively laid out on good-quality paper.

Would you recommend it? No. The book lacks bite, and the detail is too North American to appeal to UK readers.
