The Handbook of Consultation and Liaison Psychiatry is a remarkably complete and useful desktop book and should be required reading for most clinicians whose practice involves the interface of psychiatric and hospital-based medicine. Drs Leigh and Streltzer,
authors or coauthors of 19 of the 29 chapters, have created a text that covers the most significant areas of consultation-liaison psychiatry.
Sixteen other authors contribute to several other specialty areas,
including clinical outpatient settings, cultural challenges, human immunodeficiency virus, obstetrics, liver failure and transplantation,
and renal disease.
