    "Presents useful psychoeducation about psychotic symptoms and also includes a helpful discussion about when 'normal' perceptions and beliefs become maladaptive and impairing....There is much to like about this book from the perspective of a CBTp therapist, and it has the potential to be a valuable resource for patients in therapy and their caregivers."
