J. Wiley, Dec 27, 2005 - Psychology - 720 pages
Kring, Davison, Neale, and Johnson's Abnormal Psychology sets the standard for clarity, cutting-edge coverage, authoritative content, and clinical emphasis. The authors invite students to examine the many different facets of psychopathology -- to search for clues, follow-up on hunches, and evaluate evidence on the origins of these disorders and the effectiveness of specific interventions.
Now in their new 10th Edition, the authors have also greatly expanded the text's pedagogical features, making it even more student-friendly, engaging, and informative.
"Current trends in the field are well reflected with the sections on genetics, neuroscience, and cognitive science." - Jack Nitschke,University of Wisconsin

It's a textbook so it's definitely not something you pick up for fun. However, I liked the format and it wasn't completely dull. It gives a good overview of American history so if you are looking for something like that, then this is the book for you. Read full review
