Review: This book is an excellent resource for anyone starting or already in the Facilities Management sector. I'm a Facilities Administrator and this book is a perfect reference tool that can easily be used daily to top up your knowledge on a particular subject quickly and easily. For example some things I've recently used it for are: office lighting levels, Portable Appliance Testing, desk/office move planning and of course the all important H&S regs. *shudder* If you are expecting to sit down and read this book from front to back then this may not be the right book for you because it isn't laid out in that way. I personally found it better to read the introduction then skip to the sections that I was interested in reading as it really is more of a reference book. However with that said you could read it the whole way through but you will find that there is so much information contained within each section that you will only end up going back to a topic when you need the information. The information in the book is excellent and has plenty of links to further resources for you to go off and explore. I highly recommend for anyone that's in a Facilities role be it an assistant or a manager.

Review: Although this is a good reference manual, you get the feeling that the authors and editors of this book are possibly 'desk jockeys'. Some passages make an experienced FM smile because they are (in my opinion) slightly naive. Another problem for the new comer to FM reading this is the book is made up of sections by different authors and the subjects do not necessarily knit together too well.

  • Waterstones The Clozapine Handbook

    Price: £43.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Real-world and clinical trial data support that clozapine is the only effective antipsychotic for treatment resistant schizophrenia and other severe mental illnesses. Clozapine also reduces rates of suicidality, psychiatric hospitalization and all-cause mortality. However, clozapine is underutilized for two reasons: misunderstandings of its efficacy benefits and misapprehension of, limited knowledge or misinformation about the management of treatment related risks and adverse effects. In response to worldwide efforts to promote clozapine use, this user-friendly Handbook provides clinicians with evidence-based approaches for patient management, as well as logical approaches to the management of clinical situations and adverse effects. It outlines clearly the rationale for specific management decisions and prioritises the options based on this logic. This Handbook is designed for use by clinicians worldwide and is essential reading for all mental health care professionals.
