This book was horrible for one reason: the enormous bias with indirect implications against Muslims and Palestinians. There is a line in the book which says that Muslims and Buddhists cherish grief in their religions. The bias of the book was incredible allowing Israelis to appear as victims in multiple studies in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict when they have continued to oppress/kill/occupy Palestinians with the third best military in the world with US aid. These authors have written this textbook with an agenda. Anyone who has an agenda can persuade readers of intellect to believe that what they say is true. I advise everyone who reads to read it with caution. Anyone who is studying psychology should invest some time in understanding the truth about people they study in textbooks. If we want to understand human behavior and help people, we cannot stand by oppression. I agree that the book presented factual information that was helpful in understanding psychological disorders. However, I was distracted by the obvious hatred and prejudices written between the lines.
