The Pocket Handbook of Primary Care Psychiatry is a reasonable source of information for primary care physicians, particularly in areas of non–mood disorders such as schizophrenia, anorexia nervosa, or somatoform disorder. The book hits the major highlights, describing patient presentation, treatment, and symptoms requiring further investigation or hospitalization. The book is divided into 3 parts: (1) chapters covering the field of primary care psychiatry, (2) discussions of almost every psychiatric disorder that may be encountered in the office, and (3) strategies for treatment and management of psychiatric disorders.​
