“After all, this book is recommended for the young psychiatrist, who wants to read an easy introduction to the fascinating world of treatment of resistant depression.”  (Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica, 9 November 2013)

“This is a monograph, which could be of great interest to psychiatrists managing patients with TRD. The chapters are written clearly, and the references are comprehensive and up-to-date.”  (Human Psychopharmacology: Clinical & Experimental, 6 November 2013)

“The editors should be congratulated for accomplishing the amazing feat of presenting so much information in such a compact book. With an investment of just a few hours, readers can be updated on a very complicated subject . . . The editors should be commended on detailing a variety of treatment options, including nonpharmacological options, which other books fail to emphasize.”  (Doody’s, 23 August 2013)
