Book Reviews to raise the profile of and enhance the quality of student teaching in psychiatry to improve recruitment. This book, which is a collection of 25 short chapters by 41 contributors, most of whom are psychiatrists, is meant to be a resource to academic faculty. It is very detailed and supplies much well-referenced information, often very focused on the UK experience. The authors hope this book will contribute to the development of high-quality and inspirational undergraduate teaching in the United Kingdom, as the current perception is that the UK medical student experience of psychiatry is a dispiriting one. The book comes across as somewhat dry and disjointed, with each chapter having a different author. There is significant variability in the writing styles of the contributors, leaving the overall quality as fair. The chapters are clearly titled and the layout is well organized; it lends itself well to reading around a specific topic or topics but is not an inviting read cover to cover. This book would be best used as a reference text, reading the chapters independently of each other. The first half of the book focuses on fundamental medical education principles, while the second half applies these to the teaching of psychiatry. It provides much detail on the development and delivery of psychiatry curriculum and clinical experiences for students and residents. Given that Canadian medical schools are well along in using these learning theories, recent graduates may not find they require this degree of fundamentals. This may be different in the United Kingdom where the book originates and for whom it was specifically designed. For a teacher in psychiatry who has no background in learning theory, this is a good fundamental book on education that is tailored to psychiatry. The book does achieve the goals of providing teaching principles that are applied to psychiatry that, if implemented, should help UK psychiatrists improve the quality of teaching and the clinical experiences. It is very UK-focuse; d, which limits the applicability of some chapters to Canadian readers. Many of the practices described in the book are currently in use in Canadian medical schools. In this respect, the book does not have many new or inspiring ideas for Canadian psychiatrists to use for improving their undergraduate teaching, or for attracting students to the specialty. In summary, I feel this book would have a narrow audience among Canadian psychiatrists. For those very involved in education it provides an interesting insight into psychiatry training in the United Kingdom. For those hoping to come away with ideas to generate excitement and curiosity in undergraduate psychiatric education, it falls short. Mood Disorders A Piece of My Mind: A Psychiatrist on the Couch Gordon Parker. Sydney (AU): Pan Macmillan Australia; 2012. 340 p. AUD$32.99 Reviewer rating: Excellent Review by Joel Paris, MD Montreal, Quebec Gordon Parker has written an unusual, informative, and entertaining book. It combines sections of autobiography with summaries of research findings from a long and productive career. The book is an easy read, and I learned from it, even though I have followed Parker’s work for many years. Parker’s research has been unusually wide ranging, from scales to measure parental behaviour to biological research. He has also played a key role in defining type II bipolar disorder. But Parker’s key contribution to psychiatry has been scientific support for the separation of melancholia from major depression. This book nicely summarizes that position. Melancholia has a unique etiology, unique symptoms, a unique course, and a unique response to treatment. Unfortunately, the American Psychiatric Association has chosen to ignore Parker’s advice. In DSM-5, melancholia remains a modifier but not a separate diagnosis. As a result, severe depressions will be undertreated and mild depressions will continue to be overtreated. While I found a few points of disagreement, this book is full of wisdom. Psychiatrists will also be interested in Parker’s discussion of why he went into psychiatry, and how he tried to change it. He acknowledges that he has often gone against the grain, sometimes upsetting people who do not agree with him. But Parker rightly notes that those who go along with the crowd can have little impact on a discipline. As a life-long contrarian, this reviewer found that argument strongly validating.
