I read this textbook (the entire thing!) for my Abnormal Psychology class. It was very informative and I learned very much from it. I definitely couldn't have gotten through the class without it. DSM criteria is stated in boxes throughout each section, which is very helpful. Great textbook.
I read this book a while back for school. It is an informative and absorbing book. I was always interested in anything out of the norm, so this was perfect for me. It's interesting traveling down memory lane at Goodreads.
an excellent textbook for abnormal, it resists a lot of the impulse to simply follow DSM criteria and the medical model. i appreciated the integrated approach taken to the disorders, the mentions about research being done, and the depth with which the disorders were discussed. i was also pleased to see things like DBT mentioned with BPD, and certain meds with bi-polar - it takes it a step further from simply describing the disorders to discussing how people are treating them today.

all in all qu
This was my assigned textbook for my Abnormal Psychology class. I can't believe I actually read this entire textbook during the semester.It was pretty interesting as far as textbooks go. I really liked all of the case studies in the book. They were my favorite parts of the book. I also enjoyed the little quizzes at the end of each chapter.
I thought it was a solid overview of the field of Abnormal Psychology. The main takeaway from the book was certainly that disorders generally have genetic and environmental components. I feel i am more knowledgeable than I was beginning the class (wish I had the CD...seems like the had interesting interviews with folks).

I'm told this is the classic beginners' tome for psychopathology and psychopharmacology; indeed, it's easy to see why Barlow dominates this specialty. A bit abstruse at times, particularly in the drug treatments section (perhaps the next edition will include a chemistry section as well?).

The best layman's guide to 'abnormal' psychology.
Find out about the major life stressors. Find out how fine the line is between a narcissist and a sociopath.
Easy to read and worth having as a research guide if you are writing almost anything.
this book has one of the best textbook covers (almost as amazing as Harlequin novels, really) I've ever see!
really, it's like therapy for stressed female students everywhere (or maybe, it's just me).
anyway, I love this book, so much.

So far, so good. I'm hoping this book will give me some insight on some of the commonly diagnosed mental disorders of people I know.....Perhaps I'll be less judgmental if I find out why so many folks are nuts these days.
I had to read this book for a class and I actually enjoyed it. It provides a great overview of major disorders and contains excerpts from the DSM regarding criterion.
