    This book was filled with bright pink ink making it difficult to focus on the text. I'm very disappointed and would not recommend this book for others. When renting out text books they should not be marked up or filled with comments from the reader that take away from the text.The markings are throughout the book. I just got the book a few hours ago and open it to begin my reading and this is what I was faced with.

    This text is probably as good as it gets for an introductory text book to abnormal psychology.For me, one drawback to the text (which by its own nature must be) is that it presents the mental health world in a way that looks and sounds very much like the view of the APA, DSM medical model-ish need to fix you view of mental health. So therapists or aspiring therapists practicing feminism, narrative, humanistic-existential, transpersonal, mindfulness, experiential / in the now, expressive arts, community mental health or community psychology, etc. will need to read with a grain of salt.I like the idea the author has included multi-cultural dimension to the world of the mind and mental health.Falls short as the author seemingly tries to justify the idea you can define the concept of mental disorder or psychological disorder.ADHD is an area i have done quite a bit of research. It seemed to me the text presents the classic "ADHD is a mental disorder" view and could be more imaginative presenting factors of creativity, person-environment fit, personality and school structures as a one size fit all as needing examination before pronouncing a diagnosis. However, regarding ADHD the text does a good job regarding gender and cultural biases in the diagnosis of ADHD as well as suggests there is over diagnosis of ADHD in the USA and for boys.However, overall the book is very well written and presents much insights into challenges which can face people. Would use if teaching a undergrad or even a grad class in abnormal psych.

    Makes the topic accessible even for people who have never studied psychology. Good textbook.

    Books were counterfeit. The spines broke and a few books were held together with velcro.

    I had to buy this book for a class: 'Abnormal Psychology'. I have researched this topic extensively and found a lot of the information in there to be inaccurate. It was frustrating because the teacher got all the information from the book.For instance it's DSM categorizations for Bipolar are off. Being bipolar, and successfully treating it, I know what elements and symptoms classify you as bipolar from the best doctors in the state, and the teacher said that those classifications were wrong based on this book.I'm usually not to picky, but on this subject I am. Especially if it's a college course.Another thing is, that while I know it's an overview of all the psychological problems, I feel like they glossed over subjects, treatments. It's just not very well done.One thing I do like is the artwork they displayed inside. It's a beautiful book, just inaccurate.

    I purchased this book for a class in college. It is interesting. I'm giving it 3 stars because the quality of the book itself is not good. I can't believe they make books like this? It's barely hanging onto the cover and I bought it brand new.Edit: 2 stars because the book quality is absolute crap
