Amazingly perfect !! March 17, 2011
This textbook was required for my Psychiatric Nursing course, but anyone could definitely read it easily. The charts and boxes are very helpful and useful. Information is easy to find, and I find myself sucked into the book and actually reading more than assigned because it's interesting. What can I say...It was just what my son needed and at a wonderful price. Thanks!!
