The book arrived quickly and it was in excellent condition. It's an excellent overview of psychopathology. If you're looking for a book that covers everything in the DSM, this has a couple of omissions (Sleep Disorders for example), but the organization and presentation of the material is excellent. I also used the associated online website with the quizzes and the videos. The videos were very worthwhile. I have a couple of minor gripes about the quizzes: If you get an answer wrong, it tells you it's incorrect but it doesn't tell you what the correct answer is (or why, or where in the text book this is covered). There were a couple of questions in the quiz that I was able to find the answer to online but which I am 99.9% sure are not covered in the related text book chapter. And there are at least two answers in the quizzes that are wrong - or at least, they are inconsistent with the text book. In both cases they related to information that would have been edited in the 6th edition (such as the revised outcome of the Andrea Yates trial). I was using the book and quiz for the 6th edition so I would have expected them to be in synch. However, this is still a 5 star text book for me.

This textbook is easy to follow along, easy to take notes with and easy to comprehend. The author/s provide examples that connect with the now. Additionally, the book provides a lot of background information for new learners in psychology.

I have been very happy with this textbook. It gives an excellent overview of Abnormal Psychology, as well as providing examples to depict disorders and/or symptoms applied to real-life scenarios. It doesn't dig much into each disorder, but it still provides the reader with a thorough overview.

I bought this book for school and still have it almost two years later. It comes in handy as a psychology major. Also has some interesting stuff inside!

This book was quite in-depth on many psychological problems that affect our society. The balance between the detailed lessons and highlighted "snippets" made it an easy reading textbook. At times I felt it was not a textbook, but rather a book that certainly held my interest, while I was studying! I used it for a senior psychology class for Substance Abuse Counseling.

this book is very well written, very well laid out, and actually quite appealing to the eye. But this topic is of interest to you I recommend this book as you are able to learn a lot but not feel overwhelmed at the same time.
