An awesome invitation!

I read this for an Intro to Psychology course. Before the class, I'd never taken a psychology course. It was really interesting. The book is written in plain English and was one of the better ones required for a course. I regret selling this one.

That's awesome you can put textbooks on here because that is all I read anymore.

The functions for this are very helpful. The set-up is wonderful. It definitely made studying for psychology a lot easier.
