From our regular book review column.

Essentials of Clinical Psychopharmacology is a paperback, abridged “synopsis” of the recently updated, comprehensive second edition of The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Psychopharmacology. The goal of the present abridged volume is to provide clinicians with a more manageable reference that focuses on the key aspects of clinical psychopharmacology, while retaining the integrity of reviews (chapters) by the leaders in American psychopharmacology, who edited and updated their chapters. The present “Essentials” version, a 780-page, 32- chapter, soft-bound volume, with close to 200 references per chapter, remains a scholarly review of psychopharmacology.
