Anyone interested in understanding the interface between disorder classification and patient diagnosis will find DSM-5[trademark] Clinical Cases compelling, captivating, and enlightening to read. Review        DSM-5 Clinical Cases makes the rather overwhelming DSM-5 much more accessible to mental health clinicians by using clinical examples--the way many clinicians learn best--to illustrate the changes in diagnostic criteria from DSM-IV-TR to DSM-5. More than 100 authors contributed to the 103 case vignettes and discussions in this book. Each case is concise but not oversimplified. The cases range from straightforward and typical to complicated and unusual, providing a nice repertoire of clinical material....        DSM-5 Clinical Cases is easy to read, interesting, and clinically relevant. It will improve the reader's ability to apply the DSM-5diagnostic classification system to real-life practice and highlights many nuances to DSM-5 that one might otherwise miss. This book will serve as a valuable supplementary manual for clinicians across many different stages and settings of practice. It may well be a more practical and efficient way to learn the DSM changes than the DSM-5 itself.        Rachel A. Davis, M.D. Book Review, American Journal of Psychiatry, May 2014        The book, which begins with a very brief introduction to the DSM, is organized according to the major diagnostic categories in DSM-5. At the beginning of each section is a succinct and thoughtful overview of the category (eg, schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorders),including changes, both controversial (eg, modifying the bereavement exclusion in major depression) and mundane (eg, jettisoning schizophrenia subtypes). The introduction to the personality disorders is particularly helpful in presenting the controversy surrounding proposed changes to their classification, specifically the dimensional model that was ultimately left in Section III of the DSM.        The list of contributors is awe-inspiring, including thought leaders in their respective fields such as Otto Kernberg (borderline personality disorder), Charles Reynolds (sleep disorders), Maria Oquendo (suicidality), Katharine Phillips (body dysmorphic disorder), and many others. Sixteen authors are at institutions outside the United States,lending a somewhat inclusive feel to the text.        All told, this excellent volume of clinical vignettes and commentary by distinguished leaders in our field deserves a broad audience.        Art Walaszek, MD.
