FROM THE REVIEWS OF THE SWEDISH VERSION OF ”MESSENGERS OF THE BRAIN” (“HJÄRNANS BUDBÄRARE”)


“Here the reader gets a short course in neuroscience with the latest research findings, a fascinating retrospect, and also ideas of how far research and the development of drugs may reach. The book is discussing, easy to comprehend, and written with a great respect for the limits of knowledge as well as for those people whose chemical messengers walk out of step.” (Translated from the Swedish magazine Forskning och Framsteg, which reviews the second Swedish edition of “Hjärnans Budbärare”, which corresponds to the English version “Messengers of the Brain”.)

“In this book you don’t have to worry about the popular science’s shifts between facts and fantasy.” “…very readable and full of information” “…contributes to learning as well as reflection” (Translated from some reflexions in the Swedish journal Läkartidningen, on among other things the second Swedish edition of “Hjärnans Budbärare”, which corresponds to the English version “Messengers of the Brain”.)

“At last a book even for the non-specialist, mostly about the role of the chemical messengers in the human brain…” “This very readable book deals with all aspects of mental disease…” (Translated from the Swedish magazine Empati, which reviews the second Swedish edition of “Hjärnans Budbärare”, which corresponds to the English version “Messengers of the Brain”.)

 

“... an absolutely brilliant and balanced introduction to the topic.” (Translated from a review by Gunnar Skagerberg, Bibiotekstjänst, of the first Swedish edition of “Hjärnans budbärare”.)

“Although the authors possess genuine knowledge of the biochemical scenery in our brains they advocate broad solutions. This applies especially to the actions, the therapy, where alternatives to drugs are discussed.” (Translated from a review by Stig Helling in the Swedish magazine Psykologtidningen, of the first Swedish edition of “Hjärnans budbärare”.)

”This is an achievement of popular science. The authors have written a book about psychopharmacologic drugs, that will suffice for a Bachelor of Medicine or graduate in medicine, as well as be comprehended by anyone who has gone through upper secondary school or high school.” “I have seldom noticed such a high respect for the reader and an even higher respect for the patient...” (Translated from a review by Professor Tollak Sirnes in Bergens Tidende of the first Swedish edition of “Hjärnans budbärare”.)
