The Conceptual Evolution of DSM-5, edited by Regier, Narrow, Kuhl, and Kupfer, is a 359-page book that is an intellectually stimulating discourse on the history and development of DSM-5 beginning from the early years of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). An impressive collection of authors has set forth a detailed review of the history of categorical assessment in DSM and the case for introducing dimensional measurements to improve performance of the DSM in clinical practice and to facilitate research innovation. This fascinating journey is strewed with controversy in the forging of a DSM that will achieve the goals of being a user-friendly clinical guide, being a more evidence-based classification system, and promoting innovative research.
