Widely recognised as the standard text for trainee psychiatrists, the Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry stands head and shoulders above the competition. Written by three of the most experienced clinicians and researchers in European psychiatry and neuroscience, the text has been honed over five editions and displays a fluency, authority and insight which is not only rarely found but makes the process of assimilating information as smooth and enjoyable as possible. The book provides an introduction to all the clinical topics required by the trainee psychiatrist, including all the sub-specialties and major psychiatric conditions. Throughout, the authors emphasize the basic clinical skills required for the full assessment and understanding of the patient. Discussion of treatment includes not only scientific evidence, but also practical problems in the management of individual patients.

From reviews of the previous edition:
`The Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry is one of the best examples of the genre. The layout is clear and it is comprehensive without being obscure. Most importantly it is fluent If I were about to sit postgraduate examinations in psychiatry, I would choose this book.' British Journal of Psychiatry
`The amount of useful practical knowledge packed into this volume is remarkable, but with the author's literary skills it makes for easy reading. It is a model of order, clarity ... It is to be recommended without reservation.' Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry
`The authors have succeeded admirably in the formidable task of instilling virtually the whole of clinical psychiatry into just over 1000 pages. The text is clearly written, effortless to read and is replete with essential information.' International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry
`This is a well-written textbook with a pragmatic orientation toward practice, chock-full of hard-to-find clinical tidbits. Overall, Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry is a sound textbook for clinical psychiatrists. Its strength lies in its historical underpinnings and the different perspectives from standard US viewpoints.' Journal of the American Medical Association
