Stahl's Essential Psychopharmacology has established itself as the preeminent source of education and information in its field. This much-expanded third edition relies on advances in neurobiology and recent clinical developments to explain the concepts underlying drug treatment of psychiatric disorders. New neurotransmitter systems; theories on schizophrenia; clinical advances in antipsychotic and antidepressant therapy; coverage of attention deficit disorder and drug abuse; and new coverage of sleep disorders, chronic pain, and disorders of impulse control. The fully revised text is complemented with many new, instructive and entertaining illustrations, their captions may be used independent of the main text for a rapid introduction to the field or for review. This edition will be indispensable for students, scientists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals, enabling them to master the complexities of psychopharmacology and to plan treatment approaches based on current knowledge.

Reviews from the first edition: '… essential reading … I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who works with psychotropic drugs - or who has the task of teaching others about them!' American Journal of Psychiatry
'This book is a bedrock for basic understanding of the complex and fast moving field of psychopharmacology, and should be a part of every prescribing clinician's library. It is highly recommended and will be useful in many contexts.' Doody's Publishing
'… illustrations are highly effective in elucidating highly complex material. This book is a bedrock for basic understanding of the complex and fast moving field of psychopharmacology, and should be a part of every prescribing clinician's library. It is highly recommended and will be useful in many contexts.' Nishad J. Nadkarni, Doody's Health Scienced Book Review Journal
'Using his own extraordinary teaching style, together with the fine images we are accustomed to seeing from him, Professional Stahl, of California University, presents us with a second edition of his work. It is a great work, which should be very useful to psychiatrists, doctors in training and psychopharmacologists.' Professor a. Seva, European Journal of Psychiatry
'The clinically orientated chapters do an impressive job of bringing together the neuropathological basis and psychopharmacological approaches to psychiatric conditions. I would highly recommend this as an concise, entertaining and easily accessible source of information.' Sophie Ilson, Addiction Biology
'… the first edition was a finely crafted book with logically distinct sections on basic science, disease mechanisms, drug action, and drug classes. This second edition is now much improved again with copious colour illustrations and bang up to date scientific information about both aetiological theories and new products and their associated modes of action … a benchmark book for modern psychopharmacology teaching.' Robert Kerwin, Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery and Psychiatry
'If there is one basic psychopharmacology text for a practitioner or teacher of psychiatric medicine to own, this is it … Cleverly illustrated with simple cartoons, this book presents complex information in an easily accessible manner … Essential Psychopharmacology is a first rate book. It is both a ready reference and an internally consistent teaching text … It will become an essential source for the information that informs the teaching and practice of psychiatric medicine over the next decade.' Stan Kutcher, The Lancet
'… an excellent basic textbook covering the key areas of psychopharmacology. its concise and structured approach made reading enjoyable … I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to all psychiatric trainees.' R. Winterhaldes, Journal of Intellectual Disability Research
'As an MRC psychiatry student I have benefited enormously from studying this book. Stahl has allowed me to see the light in what I previously found to be a very complex subject, it has made a fascinating and fulfilling read.' Judy Whitely, International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry
'Essential Psychopharmacology offers a wide range of readers an engaging and comprehensive view of psychopharmacology. it is highly recommended to both novice and experienced researchers, who stand to gain a new or renewed appreciation for the complexity and beauty of how the nervous system mediates the behavioural effects of drugs.' Ruth E. Grahn, Contemporary Psychology
'… readers are treated to a clear and thorough overview of the complexities of managing psychiatric disorders and the otherwise bewildering array of somatic treatments. … The principal value of the book is that it provides a lucid framework for understanding pharmacotherapeutic approaches in treating mental disorders by proposing how brain circuits and their neurotransmitters can be linked to the amelioration of symptoms and includes new information on synapses, signaling, psychiatric genetics and a variety of disease models. The illustrations are superb and are excellent teaching tools. … The book is an excellent source of information for the art of prescribing psychotropic medications. This book belongs in every clinician's library and serves as a model of clarity for others.' Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica
'Stahl's Essential Psychopharmacology now stands alone as the most recently updated and most comprehensive psychopharmacology textbook, written by a single author. His illustrations are extremely well-conceived, educational and informative. Dr Stahl is consistent in his approach to teaching and writing. I find his work to be extremely valuable to the practising clinician. He fosters an academic, research-based understanding of modern pharmacology and psychopharmacologic drug action. Medical students, psychiatry residents and fellows and experienced clinicians will find the style and content refreshing. … I recommend this text as an extremely useful reference work as we enter the next decade of discovery in brain neurosciences and its role in clinical psychiatry.' Psychological Medicine
'We highly recommend this book both to general practitioners who may need information on general mechanisms of psychotropic drugs and to students that would like to learn more about basic psychopharmacology and its practical applications.' Clinical Neuropsychiatry
This revised and expanded edition illustrates the neurobiological concepts underlying the drug treatment of psychiatric disorders. For the student it provides an easily readable and highly illustrated introduction to the subject. For the physician or scientist it offers a quick review of psychopharmacology and the drug treatment of mental illness.
