“This book pulled me in, because it is different than most other books on diagnosis, it fills a niche, and the writing style is marvelous....Morrison adopts the role of a friendly tutor, one who has a wealth of clinical experience but assumes that some readers are new to this and that some seasoned clinicians were trained poorly or have developed bad habits that interfere with their capacity to reliably diagnose patients with precision. He writes in a style that is both scientific and professional, but also conversational....This book would be of value to students in training, as the basis for a course on diagnostics, or as a reference honing the skills of experienced clinicians, which is exactly how I used it. This is an exceptional book that must be read and reread because of the wealth of information it contains.”

PsycCRITIQUES (on the first edition)


“A useful resource for clinicians to learn a systematic approach for arriving at diagnoses....Appropriate for students and those in early postgraduate training, as well as more experienced clinicians endeavoring to teach this material.”

Psychiatric Services (on the first edition)


“This second edition is a welcome resource for students and residents and their instructors, as well as for practicing clinicians. Written in an easy-to-read, eloquent style, the book guides the reader through decision trees that simplify the complex process of making a diagnosis. It is filled with interesting case examples and handy roadmaps, and is updated for DSM-5.”

—Richard Balon, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Wayne State University


“Morrison is an excellent writer, and Diagnosis Made Easier, Second Edition, is an easy read filled with useful clinical pearls. Numerous cases illustrate over 20 diagnostic principles. This book is an excellent choice for mental health trainees. The emphasis on syndrome identification can be quite helpful when undertaking a diagnostic evaluation.”

—David L. Dunner, MD, Director, Center for Anxiety and Depression, University of Washington


Diagnosis Made Easier, Second Edition, retains what made the first edition so useful, while fully updating it for DSM-5. It is well written, engaging, and filled with practical tips and rich illustrative examples, both from clinical practice and popular culture. The emphasis is on core principles that are essential for sound diagnostic decision making. Although this book is particularly well suited for courses on psychodiagnostic assessment, experienced practitioners will find it useful, as well.”

—Martin M. Antony, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
