"This is the best textbook out there. The prose is easy to understand, the examples are clear, and the illustrations make complex information easy to follow." --Jeffrey Rudski, Muhlenberg College "The material is timely, thorough, and more up-to-date than many texts available. I would consider using this book for my courses. I like the book so much I would love to read the entire book." --Cheryl Kirstein, University of South Florida, Tampa "I believe that the textbook is an amazing resource, it cites so many pivotal sources and it gives the students a very well rounded picture of psychopharmacology. I think that as long as you keep the content current, you are doing an amazing job!" --Matthew Clasen, American University
