Definitely an undergrad text, but research is integrated into the text with decent references. The CD-ROM was not impressive, however, and the INFOTrac access which comes with the text is nearly useless; there are few articles in the "student version" and no logical reason why some would be included and others not. The diagrams for each condition summarizing the etiological underpinnings are fairly well done and a good learning tool. There were some occasions where I felt the emphasis devoted to each condition was a bit uneven, but overall I would recommend this book.
