Robot narrator

The narrator sounds like a high-end text-to-speech program. I'm one chapter in and lack of variance in her tone and cadence make this audiobook a bit of a slog to get through. The content is informative, and as psych-NP student it provides a great review of 'high-yield' content, but I think I would be more engaged if I just read the book aloud to myself---which kind of defeats the point!

Ok for students

Some of the answers are a bit confusing and inconsistent. However it is ok for a review at 1.5x speed or faster. Also some massively mispronounced terms.

To those intersted in Psychiatry or Clinical Psych

I highly recommend this audiobook for medical and psychology students or anyone interested in understanding what a mental illness entails from a diagnostic standpoint. The content is similar to what one would learn in an abnormal psychology class. Each chapter follows the formula of giving an overview of a disorder category such as depressive disorders or sleep disorders and then goes into detail on the most prevalent types of disorders in the category i.e. major depressive disorder or insomnia. For each specific disorder discussed, it goes through the entire diagnostic criteria as found in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5th edition (DSM-5). Going through the diagnostic criteria can be rather tedious as it is a list of symptoms being read off but that is important information in diagnosing a mental disorder.
I found the information to be accurate and up to date and an excellent study help in memorizing the DSM criteria.

Simplistic

This audio book sounds like it is read from a college freshman textbook for people majoring in a field not related to mental health.
