A textbook for abnormal psych classes, and written like the muddy sand that sucks your boots off as you try to pry yourself out of a swamp. I pity all who are forced to use this textbook. It avoids several key issues (for example - the 'right to die' movement isn't mentioned at all). And I can only imagine that with the revisions needed for the DSM5 updates, it's going to be even more convoluted and illegible.
I used this book in my psychopathology class. I noticed that many of the treatment approaches included CBT. I really like the information given in the book. It was a well written textbook. I am surprised by the low rating. I was always looking forward to reading about the next disorder. I would read more by this author in the future.
