The 14th edition is an excellent text for Abnormal Psychology or Behavior Pathology. Its cross reference to the DSM-IV-TR is up to date and current with the most recent research on all of the DSM-IV-TR disorders. I do not recommend purchasing an earlier edition, because this has so much more detail and illustrations especially the most recent brain biology.Abnormal Psychology (14th Edition)

Format: Hardcover
Material in book was pretty good overall, and I liked how they had chapter summaries, and sections dedicated to updates/advancements in the field. The negative thing about this textbook is that the print is so small it made my eyes hurt reading it and there was too much fluff. The chapters took forever to read and with all the fluff it made it nearly impossible to skim.

Easy to read and understand the concepts. The chapters are not long which makes getting throught text much faster. A good learning resource for those just beginning their study in psychology as well as those who are in their graduate year.

If you're ordering the "paperback" version that includes My Psych Lab, the book comes UNBOUND. It is hole punched for a 3-ring binder. I don't mind, but was surprised when I got it. The book itself is great. Very informative & easy to read. My Psych Lab is helpful as well.

This textbook is full of errors. Not only grammatical, but there is several informational errors as well. It is extremely poorly written and I'm surprised that Butcher, Mineka and Hooley would allow their names be associated with it. I have considered contacting each of them to inform them of the awful mess that they have allowed their names to be associated with. Maybe when Pearson decides to publish the 15th edition, they'll hire me to ghost write instead of the schlubs that ghosted this edition. It is truly terrible.

Good condition, as expected. I used this book for a summer course, and it served it's purpose. Cheaper than buying at the bookstore.
