"Tasman et al. have produced an outstanding book in this third edition of Psychiatry.... This is a fine textbook that will serve educators, at all levels, as a curriculum guide and teaching tool. For practitioners, it is a comprehensive reference that will find great use in any library." (American Journal of Psychiatry, July 2009)
“This is the book that the reviewer for American Journal of Psychiatry called ‘extremely user friendly… wonderfully conceived and beautifully executed’ in its previous edition. Updated to reflect today’s most urgent topics, this patient-centered two-volume set belongs in every clinician’s collection.” (Psychiatric Times, June 2009)
"This two-volume work is immense, encyclopedic, and extremely comprehensive. Most general textbooks tend to be outdated and have limited usefulness, but that is not the case with this textbook, edited by eminent leaders in American psychiatric education. For its scope and size, the editors have produced a text of striking quality, summarizing major areas of the psychiatric literature and other related topics.
Subjects are presented in a fair, balanced, and objective manner, with special attention given to science and data." (PsychCRITIQUES, July 2009)
“Extensively revised and updated this edition reflects the progress and developments in the field. With 127 chapters and over 400 contributors this book is a truly comprehensive exposition of the specialty of psychiatry. Written by well-known and highly regarded experts from around the world, it takes a patient-centered approach making it an indispensable resource for all those involved in the care of patients with psychiatric disorders. This work is comprehensive … it illustrates … how quickly the landscape is changing due to our improving understanding of the disease process and advancing technology. Content-wise, it is a higher quality reference than many others used today.” (Doodys Book Reviews, December 2008)
