Clinicians on the front lines of neuropsychiatry require a resource that is imminently practical, as well as comprehensive?one that provides critical guidance at the bedside and in the consulting room. Psychiatry and neurology residents preparing for the daunting American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology certification examination need an efficient way to learn both basic and advanced assessment and treatment techniques in their chosen subspecialties.Essentials of Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, a carefully and thoughtfully distilled abridgement of the comprehensiveAmerican Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, meets the needs of both groups. As one reviewer put it, theEssentialsvolume, designed to be a more accessible and portable version of the ?big book,? represents ?nothing less than the presentation of the neuroscientific basis of psychiatry.? One advantage of the resulting revision cycle is the opportunity to update more frequently, ensuring that each iteration reflects the cutting edge in research and practice. Newly revised to mirror both the significant changes in the 5th edition of the big book, published in 2008. The book boasts an impressive roster of acclaimed clinicians and researchers in neuropsychiatry, who deliver impeccably documented and imminently useful chapters on the key principles of diagnosis and treatment of patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. As the growth in neuropsychiatric knowledge?truly astonishing over the last decade?continues unabated, the twin resources ofTextbookandEssentialsbecome not just useful, but indispensable. No psychiatrist, neurologist, or resident in psychiatry or neurology should be without these critical volumes.
