It is longer than the 3rd edition of the old Oxford textbook and more geared to an international readership than a specifically British readership. I could not find anything on water intoxication in schizophrenia. I was not satisfied with the section on the side effects of Clozapine.

This new edition of New Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry is very authoritative and written by very respectable authors who are the experts in their areas. Throughout the text there is a very lucid and easy language considering the fact that it covers psychiatry in depth. The book definitely has an international appeal and will give other reference texts a run for their money. I highly recommend it.

Thanks to Amazon team for asking me for a review. So far I am reading this book and has read one eighth of that. The book is good and rather very good and comprehensive, however there is need for improvement. The language and style is very difficult. The sentences are very long. One who already has very very clear concepts of genetics and neuroanatomy etc. can even barely understand those topics. Other people cannot. It is not written at a very basic level. A suggestion would be to use similar type of language that is used in American books such as Kaplan / Sadock & Sadock's textbook and synopsis of psychiatry. Make use of more illustrations and try to illustrate and tabulate things as much as possible. Also, there is very little information on some learning theorists such as Margaret Mahler and Erick Erickson etc. I have not yet found Margaret Mahler in this book and about Erick Erickson, there is only one table and that too is quite incomplete and insufficient. Similarly the critical appraisal bit is very insufficient. The Royal College of Psychiatrists expects a lot from us for its exams and although this book does provide a lot of those, yet there is a lot to add and improve.
