Endorsements & Reviews

“An important component of the work regarding students and residents is that it leaves nothing to chance; important terms are clearly defined, and the facts are placed into a historical context, which helps the novice understand the evolution of the field…. Excellent case descriptions bring the abstract concepts to life…. [T]he information provided is relevant and to the point, with excellent instruments for clinicians to use in day-to-day practice…It will be invaluable to students during an initial psychiatric experience. Overall, this is a readable, easy-to-understand, and helpful basic text for students, or ‘refresher’ for practicing clinicians.” — The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

“It is funny, occasionally provocative, and filled with clinically relevant descriptions of the important diagnostic features of the major psychiatric syndromes.” — Contemporary Psychiatry
