Provides up-to-date coverage of modern engineering design and manufacturing topics. This book contains a number of unique features. Besides tradititional subjects in CAD/CAM, it discusses in detail such current issues as Just-In-Time, cellular and flexible manufacturing, AGVS, AS/RS and enterprise-wide integration. Offers a quantitative analysis of computer-integrated design and manufacturing systems. Includes scores of examples to illustrate concepts.
"It is a masterpiece worthy of its heritage, offering the unique richness that was evident in the original work. As such, it should be viewed as a necessary if occasional resource for the general psychiatrist and as an absolute requirement for the training and practice of consulting psychiatrists." (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 2011)
"The book is ambitious in its scope and although running to over 900 pages does not feel cumbersome to handle. Like its predecessors, [it] is an essential addition to the library of any general, liaison or old-age psychiatrist or neurologist." (Progress in Neurology and Psychiatry, December 2009)
"It is impossible to review this book in any conventional sense—indeed it is unnecessary given its almost legendary status... My overall impression of the book is that the authors have done a remarkable job of bringing this classic text up to date." (British Journal of Psychiatry, 2010)
"The benchmark for all the other neuropsychiatry textbooks on the market and should be required reading for any card-carrying neuropsychiatrists (and psychiatrists) or behavioral neurologists!" (Doody's, April 2010)
?For three decades psychiatrists have turned to Lishman?s Organic Psychiatry
as the standard neuropsychiatry reference. It stood as the last great single author reference text in medicine, a combination of meticulous, exhaustive research conveyed in a beautifully clear style. Now the mantle has been passed to a group of five distinguished authors and it is to their considerable credit that the attributes which made Organic Psychiatry such a distinctive voice remain. The fourth Edition of Lishman?s Organic Psychiatry
is a rich blend of detailed clinical inquiry and up to date neuroscience. It should be on every psychiatrist?s book shelf.?

"This is an elegantly produced update of Lishman's classic text, containing all the essentials for anybody involved in neuropsychiatry or indeed in general psychiatry with its broadest reaches. The authors have maintained the flow of Lishman's original work, meaning that it is still a book packed with knowledge that nevertheless can be read with ease and also with pleasure."
