Kaplan and Sadock's Pocket Handbook of Clinical Psychiatry Reviews

    As someone fascinated by mental illness, it really pains me to say that this book is outrageous. My first thorough experience with clinical psychology (a field I deeply love and therefore intend to devote my research interest to in the future), it left me confused and often exasperated. Though intended for psychiatrists instead of psychology majors (which could partly explain my confusion), all in all, it lacks in structure and organization, while (it being psychoanalytically orientated) it often provides FALSE information about other therapeutic approaches, often confusing behaviorism with CBT. To be frank, I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. Now that the new DSM is released the authors should take this opportunity and reconsider the structure, as well as the language of the book –let alone its accuracy- in order to have a more reader-friendly result.

    it's a great synthesis, for rapid consultation, and has a lots of plusses in the matter of treatment and essential high lights to make the right diagnosis

    I use this book weekly in my practice. Much more accessible than the DSM.
