Format: Hardcover
Very thorough treatment of the subject from well rounded, expert authors. Text assumes no previous knowledge, and is quite lengthy because of its comprehensive nature. I have used it many times as a reference text after taking a course in which it was required.
Also this text is an example of a beautiful job of "book making". The text has many color plates -- and a high quality printing job.

Format: Hardcover
Using DSM-IV criteria throughout, the authors manage to provide a succinct analysis of psychopathology, as seen from a transtheoretical perspective.
The research alone quoted throughout makes this book a valuable resource, but combined with an engaging writing style and top-notch structure, it promises to secure Barlow and Durand's position as authors-to-beat when it comes to the field of Abnormal Psychology.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered this book for my Psychopathologies class, and I absolutely love it! Each type of disorder is broken down into chapters, for example, one chapter covers all the Somatoform and Dissociative Disorders. Then, each chapter is broken down into the individual disorders. There are case studies, diagnostic criteria per the DSM-IV-TR, colored pictures, and current research regarding each of the disorders. The book also covers, briefly, the treatment process for these disorders. The treatment section focuses more on therapy rather than medications, but it does state what type of medications are generally prescribed. There are visual aids as well to help those who can't learn by straight reading. I think this is a valuable book and worth the money I spent on it. I will definitely be keeping this book!

The book treats many cases and reaches high level of coverage; it is very helpful, that in practice one can find many similarities, since the cases are very realistic and explained in depth. My opinion is, that it is valuable because it is applicable.

Very comprehensive. Used it for my undergraduate abnormal psych class. Very dense and a bit based towards barlows studies and towards cognitive behavioral therapy above all else
