    Nice Adjunct to DSM-IV-TR Manual

    For students this is a transportable, very easy to use DSM-IV. It's a perfect adjunct to the full size in a format that fits easily into a backpack or other carry along. The spiral binding is excellent. I don't want to ruin the ending but the last page, Unspecified mental disorder (nonpsychotic), is really unexpected!

    A lean, mean DSM-IV-TR

    This book is the less intimidating version of the complete 'DSM-IV-TR'. It's a no nonsense summary of the salient points of the complete text, and in that sense it's somewhat more practical and quicker to use. Professionals in the field of psychiatry may want to keep it handy. Also, for those outside the field of psychiatry, it could also be considered as an alternative to buying the complete 'DSM-IV-TR', though I would suggest the complete book for those most interested in getting a thorough look at the bible of psychiatry.

    Handy and Compact

    The smaller version of the DSM-IV is perfect for students as well as practitioners. The larger version stays in the office, the smaller one fits in a pocket or a purse. Love it.

    IV Edition is helpful

    I order this book and received it timely, in fact, speedy would be a better word. I appreciated the quick turn around because I am using this book for school.

    A great book to promote diseases !

    The DSM IV-TR is a great book to promote diseases that fit the armaments of medications that the pharmaceutical companies would like physicians to use. The problem with the whole DSM serie is that it is mostly subjective and based on speculation. The DSM is not based on hard empirical evidence but on a consensual system by few well-connected psychiatrists on the payroll of the pharmaceutical companies. These same psychiatrists also happen to belong to the American Psychiatric Association and/or work as hired guns/consultants for the APA, which also happens to receive yearly funding or gifts from the pharmaceutical companies $500,000 worth. The whole process is deceitful and shameful!!!
