In this indispensable book, master diagnostician James Morrison presents the spectrum of diagnoses in DSM-5 in an accessible, engaging, clinically useful format. Demystifying DSM-5 criteria without sacrificing accuracy, the book includes ICD-10-CM codes for each disorder. More than 130 detailed case vignettes illustrate typical patient presentations; down-to-earth discussions of each case demonstrate how to arrive at the diagnosis and rule out other likely possibilities. Providing a wealth of diagnostic pointers, Morrison writes with the wisdom and wit that made his guide to the prior DSM a valued resource for hundreds of thousands of clinicians and students. His website ( offers additional discussion and resources related to psychiatric diagnosis and DSM-5.

I have DSM5 and didn't want to pay to download it to a tablet to use during a trip where I really wanted to review the book.
When I saw DSM 5 Made Easy, a five star review, and with the experience of previous "Made Easy" books (narrowed down to the essentials with visual aids so helpful for that panoramic 30 minute review before a test), I fell for it. The presentation of criteria is somewhat simplified, but certainly not worthy of the money I paid for it. The clinical vignettes might be interesting for new clinicians, but in my opinion it is not what one is looking for behind a title containing the words "Made Easy".
