I'd like to start a list of books which you found extremely helpful during your psychiatry residency, or in your psychiatry attending practice. I'm not talking BRS or Blueprints - more the seminal works or those which you found extremely necessary, interesting or progressive. **[Edited thread]** I'm including a former sticky direct link to "Essential Articles in Psychiatry" to help eliminate some of the sticky clutter. Feel free to read and post in both this thread and in the linked thread: Essential Articles in Psychiatry Thread I'll start with one I found useful on my neuro rotation: 1. Neurology (House Officer Series) by Howard L. Weiner, Lawrence P., Md. Levitt, Alexander D., Mb. Rae-Grant Useful easily referenced pages on how to approach the patient in status, loading doses, therapeutic levels, etc. And while I haven't gotten through the entire book yet, this one makes for an interesting read (Dr. Hudziak also spoke at our grand rounds - very, very interesting and dynamic speaker): 2. Defining Psychopathology in the 21st Century: DSM-V and beyond by Helzer & Hudziak ...Talks about the near future of psychiatry in which genomics will play a much larger role in the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric conditions.
