It's a textbook, but it's not boring. I really appreciated the continuous focus on the various interpretations of (and treatment methods for) each disorder from the different schools of psychological thought (cognitive, behaviorist, etc.)

The multiculturalist slant never felt too heavy-handed or tacked-on. It was brought in merely to shed light on missteps or assumptions in Western thought.

It's a textbook. Nothing flashy and nothing mind blowing. Clear and precise. One of the better psychology text books I've used.
