The opening chapter deals effectively with the most important aspect of psychiatry: The patient-doctor relationship. Subsequent sections deal with basic neurosciences and psychosocial sciences.

The newly added chapter on neurogenetics is lucidly written and useful. The chapters on various psychiatric disorders follow the pattern of previous editions: Evolution of the concept, epidemiology, etiology, diagnostic and clinical features, differential diagnosis and management.

In an effort to keep up with massive advances in the field of biological psychiatry without increasing the volume of the text, several areas related to conceptual evolution of psychiatric disorders especially, psychosocial perspectives have taken a back seat. This is unfortunate, not only because it narrows the perspective of the psychiatry residents but also may pose difficulty in exams as questions from these areas are frequently asked.
