Liza H. Gold, MD, is an internationally renowned leader in forensic psychiatry. In addition to her book Gun Violence and Mental Illness, Dr. Gold is a co-editor with Robert I. Simon, MD, of the American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Forensic Psychiatry. She has been honored numerous times for her work, including the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law’s (AAPL) Seymour Halleck Award for distinguished contributions to the field of forensic psychiatry. Her books Sexual Harassment: Psychiatric Assessment in Employment Litigation and Evaluating Mental Health Disability in the Workplace are essential for anyone who works in these fields and have both been honored by the American Psychiatric Association and the AAPL with the Manfred Guttmacher Award. Her expert opinion has been sought by sources including ABC, PBS, CNN, and NPR. As psychiatrists who practice in an era with gross distortions about the connection between mental illness and gun violence, it is incumbent on us to contribute to public discourse with sound information and guidance. It is very fortunate that Dr. Gold has given us a book that will help us to do so.
