"The sixth edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry is a major achievement. This authoritative book covers the full breadth of psychiatry, from assessment, to the many diagnostic classes, to their comprehensive treatment—all in a single volume. The editors have assembled an impressive group of experts who share their collective knowledge about psychiatry and psychiatric disorders, sharing their deep wisdom along the way. If there is a comprehensive single volume on psychiatry worth having on your bookshelf, this is it."—Donald W. Black, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine, Iowa City, IA

Outstanding authors who know their stuff deliver an oeuvre with value and staying power."—Jerrold F.
