For an introductory book on psychology I thought this eas a great text to read for class. No topic was too difficult and the coverage seemed pretty complete. Kalat looks at a broad spectrum of psychological topic and also is able to piece together a history of psychology as a science.
If I were to ever teach a psychology class, I would probably use Kalat's textbook as a supplement to my course. He explains concepts in a way that is easy to understand and presents a good number of "Try-It-Yourself" activities to help students remember the important stuff.
