In this monthly feature, we collect a few excerpts from reviews of our books.  Here is a sampling of our October book reviews:

Androgen Deprivation Therapy: An Essential Guide for Prostate Cancer Patients and Their Loved Ones, by Richard J. Wassersug, PhD; Lauren M. Walker, PhD; John W. Robinson, PhD, R Psych

“This is an excellent resource for individuals who are both being treated by and caring for those on androgen deprivation therapy. It addresses commonly understood as well as sensitive topics impacted by this treatment and offers explanations and strategies for how to address and cope with these side effects. Its interactive activities, patient testimonials, and annotations encourage readers to study the topics so that they will better understand the issues. In all, it is a superb source of knowledge for these patients and their families and caregivers.” –Doody’s Medical Reviews

Gender Inclusive Treatment of Intimate Partner Abuse, by John Hamel LCSW

“The NASW Code of Ethics demands that we adhere to ethical principles such as service, social justice, dignity and worth of a person, importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence. Hamel is clearly demonstrating a knowledge and application of all of these principles, which can be evidenced through his text. This is a must-have text for social workers who strive for excellence within our field and want to see progress within the domestic violence treatment field.” – The New Social Worker

 History of Psychology 101, by David C. Devonis PhD

“This reviewer has taught history and theory of psychology for 24 years. In those years, many students have said--at the end of the course--"I wish I had known this stuff at the beginning of my degree." This volume would fill that need. Devonis explores how and why American psychology developed the way it did. Thus, the book provides a blueprint for why most undergraduate degree programs in psychology were designed the way they were and why certain courses are required and others are elective.”-- CHOICE

Nursing Research Using Ethnography: Qualitative Designs and Methods in Nursing, by Mary de Chesnay, PhD, RN, PMHCNS-BC, FAAN

“This is an excellent book for researchers who want to conduct nursing research using ethnography. It contains worthwhile basic information about the design and many good examples of the use of the design. “ – Doody’s Medical Reviews

Workplace Mental Health Manual for Nurse Managers, by Lisa Y. Adams, PhD, MSc, RN

“This is a wonderful addition to leadership and management personnel and a good resource for any nurse. Too often nurses hide these issues and we need to make others aware of what can occur and take steps to bring these conditions out in the open. It is definitely a worthwhile addition to any nursing library.” – Doody’s Medical Reviews
