Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book provides great information for SW practitioners. I highly recommend it, even in light of the DSM 5 changes. However, textbook prices are corrupt and unreasonable. There is no reason why textbooks have to be so darn expensive. Keep looking for the very cheapest books you can find. The price is the only reason I gave it 4 stars.
