TOPTHREEREVIEWS

"The book offers a treasure chest of useful information in the form of both case citations with discussion and practical advice that psychiatrists can follow in rendering professional duty while maintaining the rights of their patients. . . . It should be no surprise to any reader that I wholeheartedly enjoyed this book and found that it reads like a novel and should prove to be of invaluable assistance to those who practice psychiatry."�Bruce L. Danto, M.D., JAMA, 2/1/1993
"On psychiatric malpractice this book is unrivaled, a rarity: a wonderful marriage of theory and practice. An incisive book, one that provides a clear guide for practice and a solid foundation for recognizing, analyzing, and ultimately resolving complex problems. Thoroughly stimulating, amazingly informative, always readable, and spiced here and there with a bit of humor. An illuminating source on the standard of care in the practice of psychiatry."�Ralph Slovenko, L.L.B., Ph.D., Professor of Law and Psychiatry, Wayne State University
