The book falls roughly into two sections; one dealing with specific psychiatric conditions and the other with workplace stress. The former begins with a superb chapter “Assessing mental health problems in the workplace”. There are also chapters on anxiety, depression, substance abuse, critical incidents, chronic fatigue syndrome, schizophrenia and organic states. These combine a good resume of salient clinical points with a discussion of the issues in managing the employability of the patient. The high quality information on these difficult topics will be appreciated by many clinicians.
