Read full description of the books:
I did not care for how this book was laid out. There was some good information, but I had to sift through a vast amount of filler info to find it. The author spent a great deal of time giving real life, television, and movie cases then picked them apart for accuracy. I was very frustrated after spending the time reading her lengthy details to find a summary of exceptions--in paragraph form.
I found the style and tone mind numbingly boring, the useful information surrounded by pages of narration and the information was presented with too much emphasis on "what not to do" than what to do. Seemed to me just when she was getting to what I would look for in writing, I was referred to other sources for "further information."
The index is ridiculously short for the information in the book and the chapters and paragraphs are too long to be of much value unless you intend to read through everything to find what you are looking for.
There is an area of personality disorders and treatment, but I recommend using the DSM IV as a primary resource and not this book.
