Some comments below complain that the vocabulary is too advanced- well, that may be true but personally that's what I want in an upper-level textbook!
Very accurate and a true asset to any student or mental health professional. Highly recommended!
As a professor of psychology in a Master's program (which focuses on training people to become Psychological Examiners), I use this text in my "Psychopathology" course. Although I supplement the material heavily in the sections dealing with child psychopathology, I've found this to be a nice introduction to psychopathology at the graduate level, or even for an advanced undergraduate class. I don't think that the language used is too "doctoral" (as stated in one review on this site), but you do have to be fairly well versed in psychological science to appreciate a large amount of the etiology and biology aspects of the chapters.
Overall, I would recommend this book as a nice "starter" for someone interested in psychopathology, although for a graduate course an instructor would definitely have to supplement the readings with extra material.
