'... it is a valuable resource not only for researchers new to the area but also for those who want a sophisticated overview of both classic findings and the latest biological and methodological efforts ... An encyclopedic subject index and the inclusion of a name index also make this an extremely useful reference work ... an excellent book ... The editors express hope that this book will stimulate researchers to devote 'even more time and resources to pursuing the causes and prevention of this enigmatic disorder'. It is hard to imagine a stimulus more likely to do so.' David A. Smith, Clinical Psychology Review '... a comprehensive introduction to the field of schizotypal personality ... it encompasses what is known about SPD from a biological/medical perspective ... it also covers some interesting psychological phenomena ... I strongly recommend the book.' Gerhard Andersson, Scandinavian Journal of Behaviour TherapyVom Verlag:
This book is devoted to schizotypal personality. It provides a comprehensive overview of our knowledge from some of the world's leading researchers in the field, and includes reviews of genetics, neurodevelopment, assessment, psychophysiology, neuropsychology and brain imaging. Central themes are the exploration of categorical and dimensional approaches to the understanding of schizotypal disorder and its relationship to schizophrenia. Valuable introductory and concluding chapters set in context the sometimes divergent opinions and findings presented by the book's contributors and there are reviews of methodological issues and assessment schedules for the benefit of researchers in the field. In setting out to answer, from phenomenological, psychological and neurobiological perspectives, the fundamental question 'What is schizotypal disorder?' and to develop coherent etiological models, this book will serve as an authoritative resource for clinicians and researchers interested in this major personality disorder.
