This is an extremely helpful book. Mondimore presents a comprehensive history of the disorder, pertinent neurobiological information and excellent catagorization and description of medications. All this is done without dumbing down the information presented. I just purchased the third edition, published in January 2014, and much new information has been added since the now outdated 1999 first edition.
