"This book provides comprehensive, up-to-date, easy-to-access information on every aspect of schizophrenia that clinically oriented readers would want in a single source. It reflects well the diverse and extensive experience of Mueser and Jeste, who are clinicians, researchers, and educators of great distinction."--Herbert Y. Meltzer, MD, Division Director, Psychopharmacology, Department of Psychiatry, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
"The last 20 years have seen extraordinary breakthroughs in our understanding and treatment of schizophrenia. This handbook manages to capture both the breadth and depth of these advances with impressive scholarship and élan. Written by international leaders in the field, this volume is an essential addition to the libraries of scientists and clinicians. It offers an unparalleled opportunity for students in multiple disciplines to peruse the current literature in a single, state-of-the-art volume. A major contribution to the clinical science of schizophrenia."/m-/Max Birchwood, DSc, Professor of Mental Health, University of Birmingham, UK
"It would not surprise me if this handbook quickly became the 'go-to' book on schizophrenia for researchers, clinicians, and students. This is one of those rare volumes that combine excellent depth (via the leading schizophrenia researchers in the world) with a breadth of topics that is second to none. The book goes beyond addressing basic science and treatment, covering such important areas as systems of care, special populations, and special topics. Anyone who treats or conducts research with this population should have this book on his or her shelf, and I will likely adopt it as a required text for my graduate seminar on schizophrenia."--David L. Penn, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
