The Medical Basis of Psychiatry Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

This is an update of a comprehensive textbook of psychiatry focuses on a medical-model approach. ... the book is written for practicing clinicians, psychiatry residents, and medical students. ... Each chapter has an exhaustive list of references, and a thorough index ends the book. ... It is well organized, user friendly, easy to read, and comprehensive. ... This book is a must have for any practicing psychiatrist. (William Miles, Doody's Review Service, November, 2008)

The Medical Basis of Psychiatry is a major contributor to psychiatric education, serving as an authoritative source now for more than a generation of mental health clinicians. ... The textbook covers the essentials of our field in a balanced and remarkably comprehensive manner. ... will be a great asset to residents and other trainees. ... The skilled editors ... and contributing authors are to be congratulated for providing us with this outstanding text. (Peter F. Buckley, Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Vol. 71 (8), August, 2010)

The book is divided into four sections ... . I found the editor's fresh approach exciting and provoking thought in areas that have gathered dust since my student days. The writing is clear and concise, the illustrations relevant and the overall sense as one thumbs through the pages is that the book was created with love and attention. I have placed it prominently among my private collection of texts I use to consult when searching for solid and novel data. (Yoram Barak, Israel Journal of Psychiatry, November, 2010)
