Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aaron Plattner, MD (Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services)
Description: Part of the Lecture Notes series that covers 35 areas of medicine, this is an update of an introduction to the core topics in psychiatry. The previous edition was published in 2011.
Purpose: The goal is to provide a useful resource on the skills, attitudes, and knowledge of the field of psychiatry, which is met by the authors. A basic knowledge of psychiatry is needed in every field of medicine, and this book fulfills that goal.
Audience: The primary audience is medical students and psychiatric trainees, but the authors note that the book can be "a useful resource for any health professional interested in the subject." However, medical students would get the most benefit from this book.
Features: The first five chapters review proper psychiatric assessment techniques, followed by chapters that review psychiatric diseases in various populations, treatment issues, etiology, and psychiatry and the law. Each chapter begins with learning objectives and ends with key-point summaries, directions for further reading, and helpful self-assessment questions. Throughout the chapters tables, figures, and boxes help readers better comprehend the information. Adding references in the chapters would enhance the book's usefulness.
Assessment: This is a solid addition to the many psychiatry review books available. However, Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry, Black and Andreasen (American Psychiatric Publishing, 2014), continues to be the most complete and comprehensive in this class of books. Also, because it is a U.K. publication and does not reflect the DSM-5 or U.S. law, Psychiatry Lecture Notes may not be ideal for students in the U.S.
