This book makes itself essential for efficiently learning information pertinent to patients with specific comorbidities. The in-depth yet specifically relevant content skillfully captures the needs of both a clinical and academic audience. Many books are relevant from either one perspective or the other; however, this book manages to bring them together seamlessly, both educating and making an argument for doing away with the remaining rift between psychiatry and medicine. -- Hannah EH Williams, M.D. * Doody's Book Reviews *
