Format: Paperback
A popular standard textbook for clerkship and internship, it offers a fairly comprehensive view of the field of psychiatry as a whole. Very well written, easy to read, and with plenty of illustrations. Besides clinical knowledge, the book also provides enough history (very interesting, photoes of big names in the field), psychodynamics (lot of programs now do not offer formal training, but it is nice to know the basics as a physician), and basic neuroscience (useful in ward discussion, though not in research-depth). The basic science part is somewhat not very updated to readers who involve in basic research. In general this is a solid investigation for those who has serious interest in psychiatry. But if you are going to be a psychiatrist, this is less than enough to be a reference resorce and too big for a quick reference. It may, however, serve as an appetite before you start the Comprehensive Text Book of Psychiatry from the same authers, so that the latter won't be overwhelming.

Format: Paperback
This is a superb book for both the psychiatric and mental health prfessional reader and for the general public. It is well-written, thoroughly referenced and totally up-to-date. With the revolution in drug treament the authors provide a comprehensive survey of all drugs used in psychiatry. They also cover the psychodynamic concepts of Freud, Jung, Erikson and other theorists. This book is a must for anyone interested in this field.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book when it was the 7th edition, and own both 7th and 8th. I can say that as a student of medicine, this book may be overkill for some people, however, I find it to be the best "complete" text out there. With chapters on neuro A&P, DSM-IV clinical disorders, individual pharmacological agents, and even child psychiatry, it's all one needs to learn medical psychiatry. My only advice is for someone who isn't a student of clinical medicine or a medical professional, you might find it a difficult read.

Format: Paperback
1,400 pages is a synopsis?! It's content would be perfect for a family doctor, but I think that's asking for too much reading for most. I know a lot of psychiatrists who really like the book, that's part of why I gave it 4 stars, but I think there are other, more accessible books. My med students read Nancy Andreason's book for a general introduction. Or read the Oxford Guide to Psychopathology, a MUCH better book; supplement with Steve Hyman's book on Pharm., and do your OWN exploring in the world of psychodynamics. To suggest this latter topic can be covered in ANY "synopsis" is insulting to the field.
