From the Inside Flap
This new edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5®), used by clinicians and researchers to diagnose and classify mental disorders, is the product of more than 10 years of effort by hundreds of international experts in all aspects of mental health. Their dedication and hard work have yielded an authoritative volume that defines and classifies mental disorders in order to improve diagnoses, treatment, and research. This manual, which creates a common language for clinicians involved in the diagnosis of mental disorders, includes concise and specific criteria intended to facilitate an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings -- inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, is the most comprehensive, current, and critical resource for clinical practice available to today's mental health clinicians and researchers of all orientations. The information contained in the manual is also valuable to other physicians and health professionals, including psychologists, counselors, nurses, and occupational and rehabilitation therapists, as well as social workers and forensic and legal specialists. DSM-5® is the most definitive resource for the diagnosis and classification of mental disorders.

I'm sure this is not the seller's fault, but I bought this in paperback to save on cost. I haven't used it that much at this point, but the spine has broken and a large chunk is now completely loose from the book. And each time I try to turn one of those pages, no matter how carefully, they rip off as well. I am super (slightly neurotic) about all of my books so I'm not handling this one too roughly. For the price of this book and how often I'm sure people will use it, they should do something about the spine. I know a few other people who this has happened to.

That said, for the price, it probably serves the purpose for those casual clinicians who don't need letter-perfect copies.
