Psychology in Action, (Chapters 1-16)

Covering all the major concepts and theories while still presenting the exciting and practical applications of psychology is a challenge. In order to meet this challenge, Huffman presents a fully integrated package that sets the stage for a perfectly choreographed learning experience. It includes a pedagogical system that makes psychology easier to learn. Readers will also find a robust suite of multimedia learning resources, including animations, interactive exercises, simulations and virtual experiments, and brief video clips. Psychologists can use the ninth edition as a reference for the theories and concepts.

    What’s annoying is that Chapters 17 and 18 are NOT included in this textbook. They’re mentioned and broken down in the Table of Contents, which I found misleading. I discovered in the last few weeks of my Psychology class that I needed Chapter 18, so FRANTICALLY I was able to borrow a classmates booklet of Chapters 17 and 18. Why are these chapters not part of the actual textbook???
    Other than that, I can happily say I got an A in the class and I am sure it is because of how the book is setup. There are pictures and diagrams throughout the textbook and summaries at the end of each chapter. Very enjoyable to read!

    Kindle version unusable., May 26, 2011

    This kindle book was absolutely terrible to work with for class. It was one of the worst experiences I have ever had with any form of technology.

    First of all, there are no page numbers so good luck trying to follow along in class. It gives you a percentage of how much of the book is complete but not a page number. It would be great if there was an option to view it with the original page size but no, have fun guessing where the rest of the class is. Is this feature too hard to include? Many of the diagrams were too small to see. Even on my computer the words in some diagrams are simply illegible due to the size. Oh, it’s a computer so maybe you can zoom in? Nope. There is no way to zoom in on these diagrams so if any important information is included, you’re not going to get that. On the other hand, images that normally take up one full page will often be split down the middle, onto two separate pages. *click* see the first half, *click* see the second half. If you accidentally highlight something (really easy to do, takes 2 clicks) there is no way to remove it. What? Why? I understand that if I highlighted something in a real textbook, I couldn’t “undo” it but this is on the computer. There is no reason for “undo” to not be included. Navigating is a pain. If you’re in another window and click back to the Kindle, you will probably turn a page, or highlight something, or look up a word. Why can’t I click on it without it doing something?

    I will NEVER EVER buy a Kindle book again, and I have made a point to tell everyone I know how terrible the user interface is and the incredibly bad functionality. I can’t believe how unusable this was. It made work for my class an absolute DREAD. I don’t see how Amazon could release a textbook on the Kindle and have it so dysfunctional (and charge $66 for it). Kindle needs some MAJOR improvements before I will even consider another book for it. If you are considering buying this book for the Kindle, DON’T DO IT. It is a waste of money and time trying to get it to work properly. I am sorely disappointed in this product. What a waste of money!

    This book is, for the most part, easy to follow and understand. Some things are out of order and placed in random sections, which can make taking notes hard. And some complicated things are broken down in easy enough steps and definitions to fully understand the concept unless you google it. It’s not a terrible book, but it could be a lot better.
