"This fascinating book describes the evolution of the understanding and treatment of mental disorders . . . The books in this series are concise and engaging for high school students, particularly those who might have a particular disorder or know someone who does. They would be useful as resources for student enrichment and projects in biology or health classes; and they would prove especially valuable for teachers, since students with these disorders can often be found in their classes."
