Format: Hardcover
This textbook is very straightforward. There is little psychology jargon that isn't first described in great detail. I often found it pleasurable to read which is often rare for many textbooks. It brings to light the many questions within the history of psychology and presents information is unbiased ways. I definitely recommend this book for any historic related psychology textbook and wish this was required for intro students. Knowing the who's, what's and why's of those who influenced psychology is key to understanding this vast field.

I purchased this book as a requirement for a university course. I do not usually like history and get bored with reading about historical figures but this book got my attention. If you are interested in philosophy and psychology then you may enjoy this text. I probably would not read it for fun but as a required text, it is pretty good. I'll report back when I finish it as I am only halfway through it so far.

The book just gives too much too fast. Mostly it is interesting, but it is also overwhelming. Not for enjoyment.
