The fully revised edition of the premier guidebook to the Rorschach® test

For the last three decades, Dr. John Exner’s Comprehensive System has been the leading approach worldwide to administering and interpreting the Rorschach® test. The Rorschach®: A Comprehensive System, Volume 1, Fourth Edition retains the thorough, authoritative coverage that has kept this book at the forefront of the field, while combining approaches to both evaluation and interpretation for the first time in a single volume. This new edition provides updated research and information on administering, scoring, and interpreting the Rorschach® test, as well as new normative data, coverage of recent controversies and criticisms of the test, and illustrative case studies.

New to this edition:

  • Latest normative data for interpreting the Rorschach®
  • More cases illustrating the techniques for administering, scoring, and interpreting the test
  • New chapters on interpretation
  • A chapter on recent controversies surrounding the test

The Rorschach®: A Comprehensive System remains the most enlightened and influential guide to the test.


In the two decades since the publication of the first edition of this groundbreaking work, Exner's Comprehensive System has become the most widely used approach to the Rorschach Test. Volume 1 serves as a basic introduction to the test and focuses on its administration, scoring, and interpretation according to the Comprehensive System. Some 20% larger than its predecessor of 1986, the third edition encompasses new normative data for both adults and children, patients and non- patients. While the overall format has remained the same, this edition includes eight new chapters. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
