Review quote

"This book includes general topics that span diseases in children, adults, and the elderly. The book addresses the biological, psychological, and sociological aspects of the study of psychiatry in an equitable manner. The website offers online access to the book content."
"This book is used all over the world, and is structured in a manner that makes it easy to read. It is uncommon to find a book that encompasses what this one does: a comprehensive resource that provides an overview of the field, especially one useful for trainees in psychiatry.
"The authors are clinicians and educators who are well-known authorities in the field."
"This is an excellent, concise book that serves as a less daunting alternative to the larger textbook. It is a comprehensive collection of knowledge that is more approachable, and it provides a foundation for individuals in training or professionals looking for a concise review."
