Thoroughly revised and updated, the third edition of Pocket Essentials of Psychiatry by Professor Basant K. Puri now includes: recent new drugs; new drug names; details of the mini mental-state examination, caffeine intoxication, child abuse, rTMS, phototherapy, VNS and the McNaughten Rules; increased section on Questions and Answers for the Final Medicine Examination; more of the various forms of psychotherapy; and an expanded chapter on forensic psychiatry. Part of the very popular Kumar & Clark family, this portable and compact book has a wide readership among medical students, trainee and practising psychiatrists, and GPs, as well as trainee and practising mental-health social workers and psychiatric nurses. It is very useful for exam revision and as a handy reference on the ward, with important points highlighted in lists and diagrams. From a student review of the previous edition: 'Being a medical student, you only have a few weeks to study Psychiatry...Puri's Pocket Essentials of Psychiatry is probably the best for the beginner. The text is well structured, and diagnostic criteria for some improtant diseases, such as schizophrenia and BAD, are provided, while for some less important diseases the text is core and concise. The size is suitable for you to bring to the ward for grand rounds; when the professor is looking at the case notes, you can revise what you learn using this pocket-sized book. It makes your life easier during the Psychiatry module.'
