DOODY'S BOOK REVIEW
REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION

Steve Paschos, MD (Rush University Medical Center)

Description

Part of the Pocket Tutor series, this book provides essential clinical information on psychiatry in an efficient, organized fashion.

Purpose

al guide to psychiatry, which the authors describe as sometimes being perceived as a "Cinderella" specialty.

Audience

The book is intended for medical students and junior doctors.

Features

Initial chapters on first principles cover the general topics of patient assessment and managing concepts. Clinical chapters cover key disorders and include patient scenarios and practical advice. A final chapter covers important legal aspects of psychiatry. Excellent tables and boxes in the margins labeled "Guiding Principles" help reinforce key concepts. Simple figures help readers conceptualize basic principles. In keeping with the goal of being a pocket guide, the book makes excellent use of bold print and bullet-point lists to present the material in a combination of narrative and key points. "Clinical Insights" boxes in the margins provide a bridge for the information from the academic to the clinical setting.

Assessment

This book provides a thorough assessment of key topics and clinical scenarios for students, psychiatry residents, and junior clinicians in the field of psychiatry. The simple yet excellent tables, bullet-point lists, and figures assist in the consolidation of key information. The boxes in the margins on "Clinical Insights" and "Guiding Principles" are particularly helpful in reinforcing information and bridging the material to the clinical setting for medical students or new psychiatry residents. It's the perfect size to fit in a white coat pocket, and the high-grade paper stock lends itself to note-taking.
