Review

Ron Hallman, Emmanuel Bible College; I appreciate the perspective presented in the book. The author has presented the disorders as being on a line of continuum for mental health, this concept is excellent as it assists the student in understanding that it is not "I'm healthy; I'm sick"; but rather it is much more close between having a disorder and being considered normal. I think this is a very important fact and helps dispel the concept that abnormal psychology is only relevant to those who meet a certain DSM-IV criteria.

Carlos A. Escoto, Eastern Connecticut State University; A concise, direct text written in a conversational/personalized style which integrates aspects of abnormal psychology not covered by other texts such as risk and prevention, assessment and diagnosis. The text is written in a straight forward easy to grasp style that undergraduates should find easy to understand yet interesting.
