Description: There exist many casebooks of abnormal psychology. Some of these casebooks have been around for many years and have gone through many revisions. Some do not include patients who did not succeed in treatment (some psychologists use the term "client;" the terms, for me, are interchangeable). Some of the casebooks use famous people for their cases, such as Charles Manson, Jack the Ripper, Jeffrey Dahmer, Theodore Bundy, and "Sybil." These are all fascinating people, but I asked myself, "What would the purpose be if I decided to rehash famous serial killers and such?" After all, there are only so many ways one can assess Charles Manson, although Jack the Ripper is still a very popular subject today. (Ask Patricia Cornwell how much of her own money she spent trying to deduce his true identity.)
