چالشهای گودریدز بر مبنای کمیت است. اما به نظرم بخشی از چالشی که هر کسی میتواند با روندِ مطالعهی خودش داشته باشد، بر مبنای کیفیت است. خواندنِ این کتاب برای من به همین دلیل به اندازهی شاید ده کتاب ارزشمند بود. اول اینکه در مدتی کمتر از دو ماه یک کتاب 600 صفحهای نسبتاٌ سنگین را به زبان اصلی خواندم. دوم اینکه متوجهی اهمیت نظم و استمرار در روندِ خواندنِ کتاب شدم. در این دو ماه ساعت مخصوصی را (حدود 7:30 صبح تا 9:30) روزانه به مطالعهی کتاب اختصاص دادم. اگر به هر دلیلی موفق به اجرای برنامه نمیشدم، ...more

A great and lovely textbook. Though some of the opinions seem old-fashioned and references seem out dated, in some chapters, yet it does a good job to teach the 101 of cognitive psychology.
I rather enjoyed it and I will reread it again, in future.

I happen to find psychology to be a very interesting field. Again this is a required textbook, but glancing though the chapters, I am already finding numerous interesting topics. I think this will be a book that I may want to keep after the course is over.

Robert J. Sternberg's spectacular research career in psychology had a rather inauspicious beginning. In elementary school he performed poorly on IQ tests, and his teachers' actions conveyed their low expectations for his future progress. Everything changed when his fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Alexa, saw that he had potential and challenged him to do better. With her encouragement, he became a ...more
