I recently developed a psychiatry program for a local university and was selecting the foundational textbook. I went about comparing this book with Black's (2014) Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry, Sixth Edition, Hale's (2014) The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry, and Gabbard's (2014) Gabbard's Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders. While Black, Gabbard, & Hale all offer something unique, this book by far provides the most in-depth and comprehensive overview of the field of psychiatry. This book is also priced similarly or cheaper than the books noted above. In the end, I stuck with Synopsis of Psychiatry.
The downside to this book is that it is very heavy with 1400+ pages. The text is tiny and organized into two columns per page. Sometimes I find it difficult to follow the textual organization on each page. This is likely not a book you will read cover to cover. The only colored images are of different medication pills and brain imaging at the front of the book. The rest of the book is black, white, and pink. I should note, that the other books I mentioned above are also in grey scale and have far fewer images throughout the text.Read more ›
Addendum: The purchase includes e_book access. Tried the e_book on my android tablet and find that there is no highlighting function, no copy or print function, no note function,no good text to speech function etc. All it offers is basic book reading, nothing else. Needs more functions such as those mentioned to be fully useful. I understand that more functions are offered for iOS and windows platform, android needs work.
I really liked being able to download the e_book to my android tablet via the Inkling app from google play store. It was very easy to do and once downloaded, no internet connection is necessary for reading. I consider this feature a real plus, reminds me of kindle. The downside is that Inkling download/reading is limited to two devices, tough if you are a 'multi-devicer' .
Pg 437, 11.1 PTSD says "reacts with fear and helplessness" and "response to the traumatic event must involve intense fear or horror".
That is DSM IV criteria, it is not part of the DSM 5.
The word "stories" is tossed in the middle of a sentence for no apparent reason on pg 440 table 11.1-3 criteria B1
Pg 446 discusses "Trauma or Stressor Related Disorder not elsewhere classified". That is not part of the DSM 5.
The writing and editing for this book appear to be brutally lazy.
