This is the latest in a series of psychiatric seminars published by the Royal College of Physicians. There are nine previous books in their College Seminar Series, with two more planned. They are intended specifically for "junior doctors," a delightful term, which, alas, has largely faded from our vernacular. These volumes have 28 chapters, 36 contributors, and 1596 pages—a junior doctor will be more nearly a senior doctor upon completing the book. It is a balanced and engrossing overview. The differences between British and American psychiatric medicine are minimized, and, throughout, psychiatry in the United States is included.
