It looks like someone bent the cover in half on my copy. Customer Service made a note on my account for when it gets returned I won't get penalized for being the perpetrator.

Summary

Ron Comer’s brief text is ideal for introducing students to the realities of living with, treating, and researching psychological disorders. From his experiences as a practicing therapist, Comer draws a multitude of examples of real people and the disorders with which they struggle.  From his extensive classroom experience, he presents the material in a way that connects to students’ lives. And with this new edition, Fundamentals of Abnormal Psychology becomes the first abnormal psychology text that fully embraces diagnostic and definition changes introduced by the DSM-5.
