From the mantra given to students on the first page ("reality is complex, and complexity is our friend"), to a concluding discussion of herbaceuticals and marijuana, this text on psychotropic drugs for nonmedical therapists is different, and different is good. Ingersoll and Rak, both of Cleveland State University, review basic principles of psychopharmacology derived from the medical model and look at other perspectives that complement it. They give information on the history, action, side effects, and uses of commonly prescribed psychotropic drugs, and discuss intrapsychic, cultural, and social perspectives as well. Study questions and exercises are included. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
