'... useful and interesting ... the editors are successful in their core mission of assisting readers in identifying the key differences between classification systems, as well as educating them about the variations in treatment of certain psychiatric disorders. Overall, this book might be most valuable for those who have frequent contact with colleagues overseas or those who are planning to spend time ... in Europe or any other location that uses the ICD-10.' Doody's Notes
'... Essential Psychiatry, fourth edition is an excellent reference book with up-to-date evidence-based knowledge which will be an invaluable resource for psychiatrists and mental health professionals alike. ... for a comprehensive understanding of fundamental issues in psychiatry this textbook is a must-have.' Psychological Medicine
"Published for clinicians throughout the world, this book addresses various aspects of psychiatry, from its history to its differing global nomenclature and treatment approaches....Divided into five main sections, this book attempts to bridge a gap between clinicians who practice in Europe (and thus, use the ICD-10 as their classification system) and those in North America (who use the DSM-IV-TR) by offering explanations of the subtle differences in systems, as well as describing slight differences in treatment approaches. There are numerous black-and-white charts, diagrams, tables, and figures throughout the work, and each chapter concludes with an extensive list of references, many of which are from publications outside of the United States....The editors are successful in their core mission." --Doody's Review Service
"An excellent reference book with up-to-date evidence-based knowledge which will be an invaluable resource for psychiatrists and mental health professionals alike." --Psychological Medicine
