Format: Hardcover
The book has some stregnths. It includes a large number of clinical vignettes, which may help students better understand psychopathology (although this may be overdone). The text also encourages compassion for those with mental disorders--a plus.
However, the text appears to written for a younger, less educated audience than most university students. And, on some specific topics, the text does not provide adequate coverage of the literature. Consider just one example. In the chapter that covers obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), the author suggests that biological treatments "dominate research on OCD." The author mentions that exposure and response prevention has been shown to lead to significant symptom improvement, but fails to mention trials in which exposure and response prevention have been compared to medications in a randomized, placebo-controlled trial. This is a major omission. There are also a number of typographical errors, which give the reader the sense that the book is unpolished--rushed off to the publisher before it was ready.
One other departure from the typical abnormal text that is worth knowing about: there is a separate chapter on suicide. This is a bit unusual. More typically suicide is covered along with the mood disorders.

There was a tremendous amount of information in this text and yet it was beautifully presented. I thought the use of stories, charts, graphs, etc., helped to make what could have been an overwhelming amount of information flow logically and make sense while reading it. I used this text for a grad level course in a mental health program. I wish more of my texts were this useful; definitely a keeper.

This book is informational and easy to keep up with. No long complicated sentences and science-book like paragraphs. Also a good reference for research.

This doesn't have DSMV info in it, but it is helpful nevertheless. I really like the real world examples, and the practice questions are helpful for preparing for exams. Love it!

Abnormal Psychology! I loved everything about the class and the textbook! Even though the book had medical terms and such it explained everything very well. I would purchase this book just to have on a bookshelf at home!
