From reviews:
is a well-organized, easily accessible overview of psychiatry for learners, specifically medical students rotating in psychiatry... a wonderful resource for those looking for a general introduction to clinical psychiatry." Doody's Reviews, April 2020

Clinical Psychiatry provides all the essential information required for a successful psychiatry rotation. Written by two senior psychiatry professors, the book offers an exam-centered, reader-friendly style backed up with concise clinical guidance.
The book covers diagnosis and management based upon the DSM-5 Criteria. For every psychiatric condition:

the diagnostic pathway is provided with suggested phrasing for sensitive questions
the relevant clinical features to look out for in the mental status examination are listed
a concise definition and basic pathophysiology/etiology is outlined.

Self-assessment questions are provided at the end of each chapter. A chapter is dedicated to OSCE scenarios to aid practicing with colleagues in preparation for exams. Board-style exam questions with detailed answers are also provided.
Printed with an attractive full color design, the book includes mnemonics, clinical photos, diagrams, OSCE tips, and key fact boxes. Clinical Psychiatry is exactly the type of book medical students, residents, and psychiatry trainees need to help develop a strong psychiatric understanding.

Five-star reviews of the UK version of the book on which Clinical Psychiatry is based:

Amazing!!! "Without a shadow of a doubt the best psychiatry textbook out there!" Amazon reviewer

Organised, neat, and reader friendly. A pleasure to go through
"Dr. Azam has compiled an incredibly useful list of all the psychiatric
conditions one might be expected to know as a medical student. Within
each category of psychiatric illness there is a useful breakdown of the
diagnostic criteria, investigations, signs and symptoms, epidemiology
and management. Also laced throughout the book are helpful mnemonics
that enable the medical student to remember certain key features of
diseases. Arguably, most of this information could be found on the
internet but this book is very helpful in that it brings all that
information together in one place for quick reference. This book coupled
with the Oxford Handbook for Psychiatry is all I needed to comfortably
pass my end of block exams.

I bought this product at full price and think that for the information
found here it is well priced. As a medical student, I found this book
invaluable for my Psychiatric block. This could also be of interest to
the keen lay man or the interested healthcare practitioner who wants to
learn more about mental illnesses for their profession or leisure." Amazon reviewer

An exceptional psychiatry book "One of the best psychiatry books I
have ever read. It is organised in a neat, concise manner with tables,
colours, mnemonics, OSCE tips to name but a few. I highly recommend it. I
found it exceptional and I would love to have in kindle format as well.
It is very well put together. Excellent work!" Amazon reviewer

Clinical handbook "It has all the topics I need to know as a 3rd year student. Information is condensed and the OSCE tips look really useful." Amazon reviewer

Great help for international trainees "Simply amazing! I
recommend it specially for international doctors, as you can find many
examples and crucial questions. Enjoyable to read and presented in very
helpful way."

Very friendly layout and nicely organised "Among the very few psychiatry books that are not 'text only'" Amazon reviewer
