I rarely keep my textbooks. I thrive off those few dollars the bookstore shoves at you at the end of the semester just to get rid of the things. But this is one I have kept in my library. It's a great introduction to psychological disorders. It's easy to read & has a great flow to it. I actually read this book. Who reads their entire textbook? Honestly? I've encountered many texts that were basically impossible to read - too boring, too complicated, etc. I've had friends over (non-psych students) that have flipped through it more than once because it's truly interesting to read! If your instructor has assigned the book - congrats! If you are just interested in purchasing for your own entertainment - go for it (if you're into buying textbooks, that is)!
