Psychological anomalies considered - book review

When it comes to psychology what is this famous line; What is normal at all? In fact, is hard to say it, if anyone is perfectly normal, and that is to say, who would want to, be of normal psychology anyway. Certainly no one abnormal will be considered and if they did, they are likely already you see? In any case because anomaly in psychology is a fascinating topic, want to perhaps to find out more on the subject.


Now, if that well, you sound, there is then a quite directly and easy to read book on the subject even for a layman like me, someone outside of the psychology. Okay, so is the book that would like to, I recommend, a book, the I personally himself, and that is worth take a look at, and if you have time read. Is the name of the book;


"Casebook Abnormal Psychology" (Second Edition) by Timothy A Brown and David H. Barlow, Wadsworth - Thompson learning book publishers, Pacific Grove, CA, (2001), 334 pages, ISBN: 0-534-36316-4.


This book indeed is more than one abnormal psychology an excellent overview of conditions and some of the most common questions. I was upset and concerned to read in the introduction the following statement: "All cases in this book based on actual clinical stories and outcomes, even though the patient name and characteristic features (i.e. demographics such as age professional, martial/family history) have been changed." This bothered me, because I consider very important these factors are.


And yet, read how through this book, I began to realize that perhaps that described as important as for the understanding of the basic principles of abnormal psychology, or at least the types of anomalies in this book. Things like PTSD, for example, when that can happen to anyone, any age it seems. Actually you should this book as a reference and everyone should already know a little about psychology. Please note all of this.
