This is an important and useful contribution to the field. As prescribing moves more and more towards an algorithmic approach, this book provides an important reminder that the doctor-patient relationship is every bit as important as the pharmacological treatment. It reminds us that prescribing does not exist in a bubble, and that medication treatment is itself a form of psychotherapy. The book draws heavily on the psychodynamic pharmacology work of David Mintz but also extends his work to other areas. It is written in an easily accessible manner, and I recommend it to all new psychiatric prescribers.
