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 quite excellent - my only complaint is that the copy my school ordered was a paperback with three-hole-punched loose leaf, so it was difficult to work with and i'm still afraid of losing pages.
