This is a well-presented and interesting book for undergraduate psychology and medical students. Personally, I would have liked more on the development of psychopathic personality and less on developmental disorders.

Who is it for? This is aimed at the psychology undergraduate market and makes a good introduction to abnormal child psychology.

Presentation: The layout is clear and easy to read.

Would you recommend it? Yes, although only if a student didn't have a previous edition.
