Very much information in formulated in a way easy to understand. I didn't really read the whole book yet, just the chapters i needed for an exam and some extra! But i found it very interesting!
Good times.

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.
