Recommends it for: Mental health professionals
Excellent reference, but the text can be difficult to dredge through... Though some of the information warrants updating (in light of the DSM-5... particularly the section on personality disorders), this proved a helpful addition to the DSM for providing context to diagnosis. Good tool for mental health clinicians!
With chapters written by different authors, there's a lot of variability in the presentation of the material. While I think it was a good text overall, it's tricky to assign as a text, because of the lack of consistency. In most places, the coverage is great, but things get a bit slip-shod around the personality disorders, making it a somewhat awkward companion to the DSM-IV.

“The lifetime prevalence of dissociative disorders among women in a general urban Turkish community was 18.3%, with 1.1% having DID (ar, Akyüz, & Doan, 2007). In a study of an Ethiopian rural community, the prevalence of dissociative rural community, the prevalence of dissociative disorders was 6.3%, and these disorders were as prevalent as mood disorders (6.2%), somatoform disorders (5.9%), and anxiety disorders (5.7%) (Awas, Kebede, & Alem, 1999). A similar prevalence of ICD-10 dissociative disorders (7.3%) was reported for a sample of psychiatric patients from Saudi Arabia (AbuMadini & Rahim, 2002).” 1 likes
“Despite the growing clinical and research interest in dissociative symptoms and disorders, it is also true that the substantial substantial prevalence rates for dissociative disorders are still disproportional to the number of studies addressing these conditions.
For example, schizophrenia has a reported rate of 0.55% to 1% of the normal population (Goldner, Hus, Waraich, & Somers, more or less similar to the prevalence of DID. Yet a PubMed search generated 25,421 papers on research related to schizophrenia, whereas only 73 publications were found for DID-related research.”
