This book challenges what psychopathology should actually reflect upon in a contemporary and academic way. What graduates need is not yet another regurgitation of undergrad set conservative texts, but a series of chapters just like this that aims to lead the therapists of tommorrow towards challenging what we think we already know and making up our own minds on essential issues of mental health.

Most textbooks of this nature tend to be a regurgitation of the current DSM. The difference with this one is that it looks at psychopathology from many viewpoints and within a range of behaviors. This will stimulate your thinking about what is considered normal and abnormal. This text is good for seasoned professionals who do not want the same 'ol, same 'ol.

This book was one of the texts in my Graduate Class in Psychopathology, I found that the vocabulary was appropriately advanced for the level of education that it was imparting, that the information was sufficient to provide more than just foundation level learning and encourages the reader to draw conclusions and speculate on future research opportunities in each of the areas covered. I would recommend this to anyone with at least an undergraduate foundation in Psychology as a way to broaden their understanding of psychopathology.
