"For those who are teaching Abnormal Psychology (or even Normal Psychology), this book is a great way to help students and interns deal with the Major Clinical and Personality Disorders from the DSM-IV. Using funny and appropriate mnemonics, Dr. Robinson helps us to remember the essential elements of various ailments.
Not since Lazurus came up with the BASIC ID to help us remember his
multimodal approach has there been such a book to help mental health professionals deal
with the vast amount of material in a comprehensive way. Robinson uses humor to help us
learn, remember, and ultimately to help our clients and patients better, and to make the
H.M.O. process less onerous. I recommend this to P.H.Ds, M.S.W.s and suggest P.D.Q. they
purchase this book A.S.A.P."
