Great overview, though some topics were overly simplified. Newest edition is fully updated to reflect the changes in the DSM 5. Read it to prepare for the GRE psychology subject test!

Shelves: nonfiction
despite being a mandatory textbook that i read, i found everything to be very fascinating even though it was written way too in depth for an intro to psychology course (even my professor pointed that out). I still thoroughly enjoyed reading this textbook. by far my favorite i’ve had to read for college so far.
