Bought in 2013 as a pre-university student. Still useful and interesting to study as a masters student in counselling.

4.0 out of 5 stars
Surprisingly Enjoyable for a Textbook
September 21, 2008

This book was used in my son's "General Psychology" course at the University of West Florida (PSY2012). He brought it home at the end of the year, so I read it. Surprisingly, it was fairly enjoyable. The sum total of my psychological knowledge comes from this book, so I can't speak to its accuracy. But, I found it to be well-written, comprehensive, and easily-read.

If the objective of the book it to have the reader know himself and the humans around him better, then it have achieved its purpose. An educational book of a kind.

It was an introductory book, of course it sucked. Most intro books suck, they never get deep into anything.

An introductory psychology book packed with information yet is easily digestible at the same time. Makes for a really interesting (albeit long) read, but glad I made it through nonetheless.

I thought this text offered a stimulating outline and effectively illustrated the many concepts and applications of the subject for those thinking about pursuing a degree in psychology.
