From the Inside Flap:

The explosive growth in the neurosciences--growth that prompted the 2002 publication of the timely fourth edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences--continues unabated. To make this vital information more accessible to residents and practitioners alike, the editors have created a unique Essentials volume based on that acclaimed textbook.

This Essentials is approximately half the 1,400 pages of the complete Textbook's fourth edition. As such, it functions as a subspecialty reference that details assessment techniques and the full range of treatments available for patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. Like the tremendously successful fourth edition, this abridged version stands out because of its impressive clinical utility and practicality and because of the singular expertise of its preeminent chapter authors.

With 20 chapters written by 46 of today's leading clinicians and researchers in neuropsychiatry, this concise reference focuses on the key principles of diagnosis and treatment. Like its parent textbook, it includes an extensively revised and expanded chapter on the neuropsychiatric aspects of delirium, a section about the clinical relevance of drug-induced delirium, and an in-depth index.

Remarkably relevant and practical, the Essentials joins an elite group of textbooks that comprise the core curricula of psychiatry and neurology residencies. It will also prove to be an invaluable resource for psychiatry and neurology residents preparing to take the challenging board examinations.
