This book was required by my college, it was pretty decent and readable and not confusing. The book arrived quickly and I feel that I benefitted tremendously by renting it. The price was great for the time it was given.

There are some useful diagrams and charts in the book, and the end-of-chapter questions and "focus your study" reviews are good, as is Appendix D, which goes over and explains the correct answers. The "knowledge base" sections of each chapter are decent and give a reasonable overview of the various conditions.

However, the book is also quite repetitive and choppy. Breaking down illnesses by learning, behavior, cognitive, etc. theories is silly, since no one theory adequately explains each illness. I don't need to read the same assessment questions over and over in each chapter. My main objection, however, is how the author repeatedly injects her personal and political biases into the text, and she seems not to like American culture very much. It's not nearly as sexist, homophobic, or immigrant-unfriendly as she makes it out to be. I don't care what her political views are; they have no place whatsoever in a textbook.

I wish I'd rented this book instead of purchasing it. It's not good enough to keep in my library, and it's also not good enough to donate to overseas schools, which is what I usually do with textbooks I'm not going to keep. So I might just tear out the pages with useful charts, etc. and recycle it.

I love that I can rent books sometimes instead of buying them! This is one of those that I need, but don't need to keep.
