Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.

This follow-up edition is a small companion to the authors’ 2009 Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry, Ninth Edition. The Pocket Handbook of Clinical Psychiatry, Fifth Edition, is definitely worth its salt—a substantive and comprehensive text in its own right, serving the needs of students, practicing physicians, and educators.

The pocket handbook ably condenses the standard textbook through the use of outline formats and abbreviated descriptions and the skillful use of tables and charts as well as cross-references to other chapters.
