Nutan Atre Vaidya, MD and Michael Alan Taylor, MD: Psychiatry Rounds: Practical Solutions to Clinical Challenges (2004)

Over 180 classic cases in Psychiatry. A step by step approach to Diagnosis and Treatment for everyday problems presented in a Grand Rounds question/answer atmosphere. A book for psychiatrists and nonpsychiatrists alike. 475 pgs; $29.95. (sample page)


"For almost two decades, I’ve attended rounds and conferences with Drs. Vaidya and Taylor. They are wonderful neuropsychiatrists who love to teach. Reading this book is like being on rounds with them, with the extra, added attraction that there’s no need to take notes—it’s here in the book. Pay attention to the questions they pose, and give your answer, just like on rounds. The experience will be precious."
