    1. The Badger says:

      The book cautioned the WASP therapist to take culture into consideration before making a diagnosis or forming a biased opinion. For example, women of my culture are known to be dramatic and use guilt to get their children to do things ("If you don't eat this, this means you don't love me/if you do that, I'm going to die,"). Here in the US, I've actually made calls to protective services for such comments made from Anglo, non-Mediterranean parents, especially when children come to me emotionally [...]

    2. Eman Hassouneh says:

      This book was horrible for one reason: the enormous bias with indirect implications against Muslims and Palestinians. There is a line in the book which says that Muslims and Buddhists cherish grief in their religions. The bias of the book was incredible allowing Israelis to appear as victims in multiple studies in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict when they have continued to oppress/kill/occupy Palestinians with the third best military in the world with US aid. These authors have written this tex [...]

      I really liked this book as it had a great deal of information, updated (at that time), and perfect for graduate students who had some familiarity with psychopathology and mental illness but could still benefit from review. Book was very well written, organized and very easy to use. I had considered it for undergraduate level but found it might be too overwhelming for them (800+ pages). Good illustrations and case studies, the only draw back at the time was the price ($190) but it has dropped co [...]

      This book was fascinating!! I had to read this for my Abnormal Psychology class and it was a very welcome companion to it. It has so much fun information and ways to see how much times have changed and how our society views things now versus in the early 1900's. If you are required to read it, I would not worry. It is written in an interesting way and is very intriguing and leads the reader to think in a more critical way about the field of Psychology. It's not painful, I promise.

    5. Christine says:

      Full of great info about Abnormal Psych. Comprehensive DSM info. Informative, helpful case studies. A quick refresher on general psych and research techniques. I read this as part of CMU psych undergrad. Decent textbook.

    6. Gail says:

      Good abnormal psych book. Interesting to read for the most part. Includes things on DSM 5 an how it changed from DSM IV-TR. Better than others I have had to read for undergrad courses.

    7. Jessica says:

      The first chapters are very entertaining, but after that it's only slightly better than reading the DSM-IV itself, particularly because the data presented is drawn, for the most part, directly from it. It is very dry, but *very* informative, and I learned about different gradients of disorders as well as discovering new disorders which are either commonly misunderstood (darn soap operas!) or uncompletely unheard of.

    8. Melissa Lee-Tammeus says:

      Yet another book on abnormal psychology. I think I could open a book store with all that I have. This is not the best one out of the lot I have, but it is not the worst either. A lot of great case studies, which I enjoyed. I suppose my biggest complaint is most of this is old news - not much in the way of new studies or new information.

    9. Finn says:

      Ahhh, one of my favourite undergrad textbooks. Yeah, you made me paranoid I had every DSM-IVrev affliction known to man (psychological hypochondriasis?) but I still look through your pages fondly as one of the few textbooks I actually enjoyed reading cover to cover

    10. Brittany says:

      Just completed this textbook for my abnormal psych class. The material is very interesting, but I believe that a bias is shown in context to the additions of the DSM-5 and the authors' opinions on that criteria. Otherwise I believe this was a very intriguing topic and I learned a lot.

    11. Felicia Knott says:

      This book was an interesting read and very helpful in my psychology course.

    12. Bibliovixen says:

      This is for my Ab Psych course for this summer - best text book for this subject I've had to use in the past few years.

    13. Latasha says:

      Dry but packed with information

    14. Krystal says:

      Decent textbook. Actually enjoyed the application of disorders to real life and known individuals. Up-to-date information. Essential for graduate school.

    15. Dan's Obsessions says:

      Perhaps it would make a nice addition , if I can get, and dump the '87 textbook I got from CRM editions ( nowhere to be found in GR)

    16. Rabeea says:

      The go-to books for undergrads. Concise and comprehensive.

    17. Nenna says:

      Good freaking lord. I know textbooks are usually dry (after all, their purpose is not to entertain the masses), but how can you make a subject like abnormal psychology so drab?

    18. Christie says:

      This textbook doesn't handle D.I.D. or repressed memory well.
