Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is a clear and concise text with useful tables of definitions of key concepts and call boxes of "cautions" alerting the reader to the need for further clarifications of some descriptions. A detailed psychotropic drugs for each diagnostic category is a great asset of the book." (The Pediatric Neuropsychologist; 8/07)

This was a very helpful book, along with the DSM-IV, that helped make my undergraduate years much simpler and enjoyable. I like the writer's style, as it is written where it isn't too hard to understand and highlights key points for a particular field that can be somewhat difficult to get through.

I would recommend this book for any student studying for Psychology or just anybody who would like to inform themselves on Abnormal Psych. It is very easy to understand and shows great examples. The author Dr. Andrew R. Getzfeld is a great author!

Although the book was a little more worn out and used than I expected, it came on time and I am pretty satisfied with the price. I look forward to using it as a resource.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book served its purpose, and is easy to read as it is not too "textbook-ey", however it is just an informational and brief survey of abnormal psychology. Also, in the "substance abuse" category, they only discussed alcoholism and did not address any other types of drug addictions, which in my opinion was a huge loss of information-- if the point of discussing abnormal psychology is to develop a better understanding between the 'sick' and the 'well' , then there was no understanding offered for people suffering from addictions to serious behavior altering drugs such as cocaine, heroine, and prescription drugs. Great for a high school or undergraduate student, but not sophisticated enough for graduate or professional studies.
