With the publication of this eighth edition, Benjamin J. Sadock and Virginia A. Sadock have produced one of the best—arguably the best—comprehensive desktop references of general psychiatry. Among the elements that make it so impressive are the thoughtful design of the volumes, which contributes to their ease of use, the inclusiveness, the expertise that the contributors bring to each chapter, and the consideration of some of the most timely psychiatric issues. Although the new edition arrives only 5 years after the previous one, given the speed of historical, medical, and research developments, it is not early but timely.
