Excellent overview of my future career! It could get a bit repetitive and dry at points (especially when listing studies). But I do not think that could have been avoided. I learned a lot and was surprised constantly at how complex psychology can become (even more than usual) when applied across different culture. Very cool. PLUS, I discovered that I share my last name with a psychologist in the book, who is from Texas. That's neat.

A social psychology textbook that objectively covers not only Western society but also Asian. The book is easy to read and informative, structured and analytical. However, some aspects are easier understood contextually and experientially, especially the comparison of cultures and social differences.

Title: Culture & Psychology (5th)
Series: -
Author: David Matsumoto & Linda Juang
Genre: Educational/ Psychology
Rating: 3 stars

This text is mostly factual - yes, that is generally the use of a textbook, but in this case, the facts are over-bearing.

The glossary throughout the text is actually the most useful (and interesting) part of this text.

Students book, that reinforce Hofstede's theory. It's not original but is complete.

I agree with others that say this book is very dull. Definition after definition.

This is an excellent textbook! The material presented is thought provoking and informative. Plus points I had an awesome professor that made this class (Psychological Anthropology) fantastic! :D
