I enjoy reading psychology textbooks. In my opinion, the best of these have three things in common: firstly, they provide accurate and current information. Secondly, they provide relevant examples and case studies to expand on the information provided. Thirdly, they omit the author’s opinions.
This textbook absolutely met the first two requirements. I especially enjoyed reading the studies and individual experiences outlined in this text. Unfortunately, the author seemed to be attempting to pers

Ok, I picked this book up from the Saylor Academy's Introduction to Psychology course, as I was fascinated by the subject, and decided to self study. This means that I am not a psychologist, so I would rather not comment on (my perception of) the content itself, but I will comment on what features from the book I liked, and what I got from it.

Now, first things first, the Goodreads database is wrong. This book is not 480 pages, it's about 800 pages (the version you can find from MIT OCW if you go

Decently informative but poorly written, only reasonably-well organized, and full of arbitrary opinions. The author is VERY fond of gearing the text towards his personal beliefs - this is particularly noticeable in controversial sections like those about drug use and sexuality.

I would have literally ANY other textbook as I imagine it would have given

This book was pretty useful for reviewing material I hadn't seen in a while, but I wouldn't really recommend it to someone who has little background in psychology. It was great for being free but, as another reviewer pointed out, he shows biases toward multiple subjects. The PDF version I used (accessed through MIT Open Courseware) also had many spelling and formatting issues that distracted from the text.

Overall it was a great find and was very helpful.

The book contained many of the key concepts that I have learned from many different sources, so I would it say it was quite informative. It was useful. But there were times when both pros and cons about a topic were expressed, without any conclusion. Since I am no expert, I found that a bit frustrating. Also, it would have been nice to see more examples and applications from everyday life.
