Great book! Several chapters where discussed in class and I enjoyed the information presented in the book!
A wonderful book & as the title indicates Abnormal Psychology. Enjoyed the class and loved the teacher.

Maybe it's just my fascination with abnormal psychology, but I enjoyed reading this text--even when my eyes started to drift closed from the redundancy of factual information. The case studies were helpful & entertaining as well.

I enjoyed this book and the way it approached giving and applying information.
