Bought this book for an Abnormal Psych class and it's awesome! Doesn't feel like reading a textbook; the authors give a very in-depth description of each case (Symptoms, Social History, Diagnosis, Treatment, Discussion, etc) and explain each section in a way that is clear and easy to read. A little on the pricier side but definitely worth it!

An otherwise difficult content for course material in a very easy & readable format. Great description and anecdotal notes follow each case study.

Though I've not been through all the cases in this book as of this review, those I have read thus far have proven to be very informative. The cases themselves as well as the history, etiology, discussions and treatment are fascinating. In this book you will find conditions that fit someone you know or have known, maybe even yourself at some point in your life. My experience with major depressive disorder (296.2/DSM IV) a few years ago was brought into a new light by the case described in this book. It helped me understand my condition and why it developed as it did. As a sidenote, I gradually stopped my Lexapro after about 14 months and no longer need or want an anti-depressant. Anyone interested in abnormal psychology, whether a layperson or clinician will find this book educational and a good read.

Very nice, and very appropriate for an Abnormal Psych course. But, as this is a case study book, there is not much room to take notes.

Overall, it is a very good supplement to go along with lecture notes and concepts.

I've only read a few of the case studies and so far so good. I wish they presented case studies from more recent decades. A few of the case studies you could tell were from the 80's or 70's which is fine, but I wanted more recent case studies. Other than that, it is a well written book.

This book has great examples of various disoders in mental health studies. It also has case studies in explaining the research on various disorders. It is an easy read and I received it fast and efficiently.
