'All in all this is a highly readable book, inspiring and almost seducing one to reconsider the diagnostic use of Delusional Disorder, and inviting future research into the nature of delusions and the psychopathology and epidemiology of paranoid disorders. The book should be obligatory for psychiatric libraries, particularly in DSM-using countries.' Aksel Bertelsen 'This book is not only an outstanding review of the literature by a leading expert in the field of delusional disorders, it also draws from the unique, extensive clinical experience of the author ... This is a unique book which deals with clinical realities which all clinicians are likely to encounter and have to deal with. It is strongly recommended.' Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics '... a valuable account of an area of psychiatry in which the patients are in steady supply. It is clearly and unusually well written and makes an easy, even enjoyable read, something that cannot be said for most psychiatric textbooks.' British Journal of Psychiatry '... an interesting book on an elusive disorder.' Royce Lee, MD
