"The present miniseries, Depression and Diabetes, Depression and Heart Disease and Depression and Cancer is a unique initiative to make physical diseases visible in psychiatry and to support the treatment ... To this reviewer the books have two strengths: their thematic broadness and the practical approach. The chapters about how to act clinically are excellent, pragmatic and consequently written .... The idea behind the series is excellent and the books are marvellous. After having read them no one will doubt that psychiatry is a medical speciality (that psychiatrists must be physicians first, psychiatrists next, that psychiatry must be done by psychiatrists and psychiatry must be lead by psychiatrists.)" (Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica, 2011)
"In summary this book is exceptionally well edited, very informative, and referenced with and a comprehensive evidence based bibliography. The book is so well done that I have already used it for psychosomatic literature review in our fellowship. What better praise? This is a book to purchase and read and use as a reference!" (Psychosomatics)
"The editors excel at making the chapters readable, informative, yet minimally redundant. The clinical guidance and research summaries make it a “must have” for any physician who works with adults. This includes primary care physicians, specialists such as cardiologists and surgeons and psychiatrists. As more physician extenders are utilized the book should also be required for physician’s assistants and nurse practioners who work with such patients on a regular basis, either as part of a hospital or office based team or independently." (Psychosomatics, 2010)
"This book thoroughly reviews the current evidence and mechanisms underlying the interplay between depression and cardiovascular disease and stresses the importance of timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment." (Doody's, 4 November 2011)
