4.0 out of 5 stars statistics, 6 Mar 2004
Having studied statistics at undergrad level and beyond I really rate this book. I have continued to use it. Sometimes it feels like there are too many equations, but I do like this book. If you concentrate it does become clear, and I constantly refer to it. Thanks to "Bob" my understanding of statistics has increased. I recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars personality disorders, 6 Mar 2004
All scientifically trained psychologists should halt here and promptly turn back. This is NOT the book for you if you are a "scientist" studying forensic psychology. This is VERY psychoanalytical. Sadly I didn't appreciate how much when I bought it, and felt it to be useless in the rigourous analysis of criminal behaviour

2.0 out of 5 stars forensic sexology, 6 Mar 2004
Well, I paid a great deal of money thinking this would help me. I feel there's a great deal of variance between the chapters. Some appear to be very outdated in their psychological analysis and content. Others are wonderful for the variety of references on unusual subjects, which you can clearly use to lead you to the source which you seek, and a general overview of the subject. however, as any good psychologist knows, other sources are now available. Basically, as somebody studying Forensic psychology I have barely used it. My advice- save your money and keep hunting for whatever you seek.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT, 7 Jan 2002
I have had to read many books to understand statistics at University. This is an excellent book for those beginning stats, in fact the best I've ever bought. The tables can be a bit difficult to read, however, it is explained in such easy terms, and is very humourous and well-written. It really made sense of stats for me

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 7 Jan 2002
At last, I have found a book which gives a well-structured overview of the symptomatology/ clinical diagnosis and various perspectives upon the range of personality disorders and their variations. Concise, organised and balanced- initially I was loathe to spend so much money on it, but it's worth every penny. I spent ages trying to find such a comprehensive book like this, but never did, until now. The only downside is that it focuses on the DSM criteria, and fails to mention ICD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 8 Jan 2001
This review is from: The Jigsaw Man (Paperback)
I had the flight from hell ahead of me- 23 hours plus a 6 hour stopover. I'm a Psychology student. I couldn't put this book down, and the hours flew by. At last a book which doesn't dwell on the gore, but the motive. My father- a policeman of 30 years found it equally fascinating.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, 10 Oct 2000
This review is from: Psychology (Hardcover)
Covers the basics but not in enough depth. I'm in my first year at Uni, and most of us tend to think that it's a bit too simplistic. It's easy read, but there are better books such as Richard Gross
