Book came in for my wife in great condition. However, as others have stated, I am partial to the cover of the book with a guy with multiple piercings and tattoos - which is expressing "deviant behavior".

Book came in for my wife in great condition. I believe deviant means to "act" different than what our society expects from us, in which a kid is being judged and stereotyped as being deviant with just his looks.

  • I am of course reading this for my college course, but I actually want to purchase it to have. It has wonderful easy to comprehend information and it's so interesting.

  • Book came in for my wife in great condition. However, as others have stated, I am partial to the cover of the book with a guy with multiple piercings and tattoos - which is expressing "deviant behavior". I believe deviant means to "act" different than what our society expects from us, in which a kid is being judged and stereotyped as being deviant with just his looks.

  • The book is pretty used which isn't the big concern. When I opened the book, immediately after half the book fell apart. After chapter 7 the pages are all removed from the glue. The first half of the book is hanging in thier, but seems to be heading in the same direction.

  • This was required for me by school however it is so easy to read! I have made high 90s on every test so far in my class thanks to this book. Very easy to read and understand.

  • It seems that the negative reviews have come from individuals that find the material to be too "liberal," so I want to clarify up front that I am a liberal & have liberal viewpoints. Additionally, I am a 4.0 student (senior) with a double major in sociology & psychology. Unlike the other reviewers, my complaint is about the reliability of the content. One person did state that Thio does a poor job of updating the text for new editions. I fully agree with that. Most of the references cited are from the 1970s, 80s, & 90s. There are some updated references - but typically just piggy-backed onto old references. In places where it seems that he would learn something by reviewing a new source, there is no new reference.

    I don't understand, for example, how he can justify using 70s & 80s data in the "mental disorders" section, as if the psychological field has remained static for 3 decades. On some pages, he used the term "psychoanalytic" interchangeably with "psychological." He claims that theories surrounding biological origins of mental disorder are in conflict with environmental causes of mental disorder, which any psychologist or psychiatrist today can tell you is untrue. Furthermore, he claims that biologic theories dominate the field today & that "psychoanalytic" (which he is also calling psychological) theories dominated the field in the 1950s & 60s, but are less popular today. However, he goes on to quote Freud, who has certainly long-since been discredited. Thio claims that there are 3 types of "functional" (which he essentially defines as "environmental") disorders: psychosis (schizophrenia & manic-depressive disorder), neurosis (anxiety "reaction," obsessive-compulsive "behavior," depressive "reaction," & psychophysiologic disorder), & personality disorders. He says, "This mental disorder has also been called character disorder or sociopathic (psychopathic) disorder." (p. 173) Hopefully you other psychology majors see the problems here. First of all, personality disorders are much more broad than just being a "catch-all" (as Thio implies on the same page) that is labeled as sociopathic. Personality disorders include Borderline Personality Disorder, Histrionic Personality Disorder, & Narcissistic Personality Disorder - among others. Secondly, no one in the psychological or psychiatric fields calls anything "character disorder." Third, he implies that he has covered the range of disorders, but even the "desk" version of the DSM-IV-TR is 370 pages long & details over 200 distinct disorders, which obviously means that he should clarify to potentially naïve students that his coverage is not exhaustive. Fourth, he repeatedly references the 1994 DSM-IV, neglecting to reference the 2000 DSM-IV-TR, which has obviously been updated more recently.

    The problem is, Thio's tragically dated information is peppered throughout this text. In order for it to teach valid, reliable, & accurate information to eager, young students, the author will need to exert the effort to give it a dramatic overhaul.

  • Great price!!! I just wish the rental time matched the semester dates

  • One of the best college textbooks I have purchased. Initially I rented this textbook but now coming to an end of this semester I have decided to pay for the purchase price and keep it. This is hands-down a great and valuable book worth keeping in your library!

  • Hows this, the content was so well written and informative that I decided to buy this thing.
