Clinical Psychiatry is a rich and often challenging discipline. Clearly and concisely describing, in book form, the myriad presentations, tools of assessment and methods of treatment is no easy task. Yet Professor David Castle from Melbourne and Darryl Bassett from Perth, assisted by fellow Australian psychiatrists in some of the chapters, have achieved this with their “primer”. Medical students, in particular, and students of other health disciplines as well, will find this book very useful, but it will also appeal to general practitioners wanting a quick refresher or ready resource.
