    I use this text in my class and my students love it, August 29, 2005

    I chose this text for my Intro to Psychology class and have taught with it three times so far. The majority of end-of-semester student reviews of the text are highly favorable. There are always a few students who feel the way the previous reviewer did, but out of a class of about 85 students, that’s a small percentage. On the whole, students indicate that they find the text to be accessible, fast-paced, and grounded in real world examples. I have no complaints!

    Student review., December 15, 2006

    This textbook does a pretty good job of making the information clear. The writer does a fairly decent job of keeping a motivated student’s attention. The only issue is that the tone the author takes is at time too smarmy. He also alludes way too frequently to his family for comfort… I feel like I know his kids, and that kind of creeps me out.

    Either way, when paired with good lectures, the material is pretty easy to follow.

    Review: Psychology Textbook, March 9, 2010
    By 

    The product was useful (and needed) for my introductory psychology course. It arrived just two days before the starting date of the delivery estimate and in the condition as promised by the seller, textbook_central. I was very pleased with that.
