Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Bradley R. Cutler, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is the fifth edition of this popular handbook of clinical psychiatry, written by the highly regarded New York University professors Benjamin Sadock and Virginia Sadock. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a summary of the etiology, epidemiology, clinical characteristics, diagnosis, and treatment of psychiatric disorders in both adults and children.
Audience: The book is intended for psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, medical students during their psychiatric rotations, and other mental health professionals.
Features: As the authors make clear, this is a minicompanion to Kaplan and Sadock's Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry , 9th edition, Sadock et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009). Its 32 chapters can be grouped into several major sections. Chapters 1-6 are an introduction to psychiatry including a classification of psychiatric diagnosis, psychiatric history, and psychiatric rating scales. Chapters 7-28 conform closely to the groups of conditions in the DSM-IV-TR, highlighting essential features of psychiatric disorders ranging from infancy through end-of-life care. Chapters 29-32 cover a variety of other topics including psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and legal issues in psychiatry. The book also contains color plates of widely used medications, a new glossary of signs and symptoms, and a section listing the numerical codes of the DSM-IV-TR diagnoses.
Assessment: After spending the past several years carrying with me a relatively ordinary pocketbook of psychiatry, I can say without a doubt that this book is extraordinary. The authors brilliantly summarize key aspects of all psychiatric disorders in an outline format that is incredibly easy to navigate. Tables with DSM-IV-TR criteria are provided for quick reference, and boxes containing clinical hints make the diagnostic criteria exceptionally relevant to daily clinical experiences. And while many pocketbooks contain only the dosing range of medications, this book provides recommendations for initiating and titrating medications. The color plates of common psychiatric medications, moreover, are especially helpful. This quick-reference pocket handbook absolutely fulfills its purpose. Readers who desire additional information can take advantage of the references to the main textbook that are provided at the end of each chapter. This minicompanion will definitely accompany me in a major way during all my patient encounters.
