I had the opportunity to review the fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences for the Journal a few years back. The task, commensurate with the size and scope of the textbook, was a bit intimidating and very labor intensive, albeit extremely rewarding. There remain few other sources representing well-written, comprehensive, and up-to-date textbooks of neuropsychiatry. In a perfect world, we could all read such a text from cover to cover. In reality, many psychiatrists will not be able to dedicate the time and resources required to undertake such a comprehensive study of neuropsychiatry, and for the neuropsychiatry uninitiate, the volume and density of information presented may prove a bit overwhelming. A companion volume, one that is shorter, more clinically focused, and more accessible to novices and that requires less of an investment in terms of time and money, would be a welcome follow-up. Thankfully, Yudofsky and Hales identified this need and provided us with the Clinical Manual of Neuropsychiatry.
