5.0 out of 5 stars Great Textbook 29 Jun 2013
I purchased this book for my second year psychology course. The module was abnormal psychology and I found the textbook to be up to date with relevant research for my studies.

The textbook came quicker than expected and in excellent condition. I would recommend this seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sorry to give it up 16 Mar 2007
By JAC - Published on Amazon.com
If I didn't need the money so badly, I'd keep this textbook. It's the first time I haven't been dying to get rid of a textbook. Make no mistake. This book is intelligent, a great read, and the layout is not overdone (unlike some books where your eye doesn't know where to look first). For me, it is the perfect model for a psychology text--reading never felt like an assignment or chore. It really was something I looked forward to.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best text book in the field so far 4 Feb 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Only after having to read and digest so many boring and endless text books, first medical ones, and then psychological, I can apreciate a good one when I see it. "Abnormal Psychology" is an easy to read, elegantly formated, and very interesting book about the subject. It is not, however, what one might call popular sceince type. Fitting very well for 1st-2nd year students, it will serve as a waem welcome into the world of pathopsychology.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, love the loose leaf 13 Feb 2013
By Ginny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Loose Leaf|Verified Purchase
This is one of the easiest to read textbooks I've ever seen. It's set up with a magazine type format, complete with sidebars and jokes (New Yorker magazine style). It's up to date and addresses the current DSM-IV-TR with expectations for the soon to be released DSM-V.
I ordered the loose leaf version since it was less expensive, not sure if I would like it, and it's turned out that I prefer this setup. I can remove a chapter or a few pages and hold them to read - much more comfortable and portable than handling the whole book all the time. I hope other texts are available in this format!

5.0 out of 5 stars A joy to read! Not too technical, but full of useful info! 11 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I liked this text because it presented the information in an unbiased manner. It used a lot of case studies and current events to support the various psychological theories. The CD ROM was extra helpful because it had quizzes over each chapter as well as videos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Text 15 July 2011
By S. Dam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this text for an Abnormal Psychology course I took in college. This book is probably one of my favorite textbooks I've owned. It presents the abnormalities and disorders in such an easy to understand/remember fashion. The book isn't dry like some psychology textbooks can be. Although readings in my course were not required (they were recommended), I still chose to read the text every week. After the course finished I winded up reading the chapters I didn't read during the course. It's a great text with a lot of useful/interesting information!
