Essence of Abnormal Psychology Left is my second textbook on Abnormal Psychology published. The first was with Costello & Costello in the USA in 1995. My solo effort in 1998 was intended as 'revision notes' for undergraduate and A-levels students in the UK as well as Nurses, Police and other professionals. It sells well internationally and has just been published in Dutch (see right). Book signing in Hong Kong
Journal Articles have been published since 1993 on a wide range subjects from Autism to Stalking. In addition to more orthadox academic output, research has been reported in diverse publications from 'The Independent' to 'Cosmopolitan' and as specific as 'the Knutsford Guardian' to the 'National Farmers Union Website'. With over 200 Television appearances, (see Media page) and many radio broadcasts as far away as the USA and Australia I re-wrote this for the European Market 1995
