    I don’t think Matlin is an idiot, but she is clearly biased and looking to guide people within her line of thought.
    It’s very frustrating that she will not entertain anything outside her line of thinking. She will only bring up alternative points briefly, skim over them, and denounce them quickly.
    She uses language that shows she is biased, something to the extent of “of course this study on a biological prospective has too many subjects for there not to be a statistical difference.” She skims over, gives one criticism, and expects that to be enough for us. Never does she explain the methods of these studies. She expects us to trust her. But it’s hard to trust someone who uses subjective language as she does.

    This review is from: The Psychology of Women (PSY 477 Preparation for Careers in Psychology) (Paperback)
    This is a good textbook, though as always your opinion of it will vary depending on how closely your ideas align with the narrative. Liberal and cultural feminists will enjoy this text. It has a good amount of content that is easy to absorb. My studies are within sociology, but this higher-level psych book does not leave me out of the loop at all and I am having no trouble keeping up with the rest of the psychology majors in class. It’s a good textbook and I highly recommend if you want to get a grasp on how gender influences our life experiences.

    My only annoyance with this textbook is that it is not hard cover, but this is by no means an anomaly. It feels like less and less of my books are coming in traditional hardcover, which is good for the environment and for the publisher’s wallets. It’d be nice if students got to see a drop in price alongside this obvious downgrade, but alas.

    It was in fair condition when I received it, the covers were very worn and falling apart. Took it upon myself to tape it so it would last me through the semester. As far as content, research is old and I am not sure why some professor are still using it.
