We were told prior to its publication that DSM-5 would be a 'living document' subject to correction. It turns out that this correction needs to begin right now -- DSM-5 in its current form is unacceptably imprecise and cries out for an immediate and thorough re-editing.

My recommendation for clinicians is simple. Don't use DSM-5 -- there is nothing official about it, nothing especially helpful in it, and all the codes you need for reimbursement are already available for free on the Internet or in DSM-IV.
