Under the guidance of an eminent editorial advisory board, the second volume includes critical reviews of the latest advances for medically ill patients in psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, neuropsychiatry, medical-legal issues, and special topics such as psychiatric aspects of anesthesia and cardiac diseases.

Since 1991, I have had a copy of Stoudemire and Fogel's Medical-Psychiatric Practice on my desk. Volume 2 promises to share another prominent place alongside it. Two thumbs up for an outstanding contribution to the field of medical psychiatry by two of its most productive scholars.—Robert O. Pasnau, M.D., Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, UCLA School of Medicine
As a consultation psychiatrist who sees many patients on respirators and those with gastrojejunstomies, the long-needed chapter on parenteral use of psychotropic medication tickled me. Hands down the most insightful treatment by Schouten of the consultant psychiatrist and malpractice I have ever seen.—George B. Murray, M.D., Chief, The Avery D.
