This book not only gives you a good consolidation of the symptoms of the various disorders, but it also gives you criteria for each disorder from the DSM-IV-TR (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders)

This book was required for my advanced abnormal psychology class for my masters degree in forensic psychology. Although I didn't use the book much in class, I did read the chapters that are assigned to the topics in class and they are very informative. I especially enjoy the real life examples. I typically don't keep any of my books that I don't need or will use in the future but I will be keeping this one for my collection.

This book was horrible for one reason: the enormous bias with indirect implications against Muslims and Palestinians. There is a line in the book which says that Muslims and Buddhists cherish grief in their religions. The bias of the book was incredible allowing Israelis to appear as victims in multiple studies in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict when they have continued to oppress/kill/occupy Palestinians with the third best military in the world with US aid. These authors have written this textbook with an agenda. Anyone who has an agenda can persuade readers of intellect to believe that what they say is true. I advise everyone who reads to read it with caution. Anyone who is studying psychology should invest some time in understanding the truth about people they study in textbooks. If we want to understand human behavior and help people, we cannot stand by oppression. I agree that the book presented factual information that was helpful in understanding psychological disorders. However, I was distracted by the obvious hatred and prejudices written between the lines.

I really liked this book as it had a great deal of information, updated (at that time), and perfect for graduate students who had some familiarity with psychopathology and mental illness but could still benefit from review. Book was very well written, organized and very easy to use. I had considered it for undergraduate level but found it might be too overwhelming for them (800+ pages). Good illustrations and case studies, the only draw back at the time was the price ($190) but it has dropped considerably. I would readily incorporate it into my curriculum as an affordable text.

Anyone who is taking an intro to abnormal psychology course will find plenty of information within this text. The book is well organized based on the DSM-IV and makes mention of changes in the DSM-V. I would just put the chapter that I was reading in a folder because the pages would just tear out when placed in a three ring binder. If a bound version is available at a reasonable price, get that version of this book.

Best used with Case Studies in Abnormal Behavior as the information in this book is excellent (if a bit wordy), but the case studies are not as realistic. Excellent conceptual information, format and structure, though.

Interesting read. I had to read this for a class and I soon started to enjoy reading it. I don't always like books I have to read for class, but this one is a thumbs up!

Book is in excellent condition with some underlining inside. I am only in week one of my classes, but I really am enjoying this book enough to keep for life.
