Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

This well-known synopsis of Kaplan and Sadock's Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry is now in its 10th edition since its first publication in 1972. The authors have condensed and updated this definitive 4000-page text into an abridged version designed to serve the day-to-day needs of practicing psychiatrists, residents, medical students, nonpsychiatric physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and other mental health professionals.

Similar to previous editions, Kaplan and Sadock's Synopsis of Psychiatry is organized, but not explicitly so, into 4 general sections.
