"In this delightful book the author answers over 260 questions that might be posed by doctors or their patients, concerning the phenomenology, aetiology, treatment and prognosis of schizophrenia...a useful, pocket-sized text, which trainees and generalists might delve into often and patients and their families find suffused with therapeutic optimism."
