Editorial Reviews

Review

"It (Kagan) is one of the most comprehensive General Psychology texts that I have previewed. Its' multicultural focus is extensive and incorporates many diverse and thought-provoking issues. The test provides students with a venue for opinion formation, analysis of current cultural issues, and initial development of potential research agendas."

"Initial chapter information is presented in an attention-grabbing introduction, and is then strategically interwoven throughout the remaining chapter, expanded upon, and finally, carefully reviewed at the end of the chapter in a concise summary with application "Test Yourself" questions. This strategy greatly aids students in retaining/comprehending the material."

"I would describe this (text) as a general psychology book that reads well and should appeal to both advanced and non-advanced students, which is a heck of an accomplishment. It covers the right amount of material, neither overwhelming the readers nor dumbing things down for them."

"Key strengths include a strong, yet simple to understand, view of biological mechanisms that influence behavior. There is an excellent empirical backbone throughout the text."

"By and large, the book is written at precisely the right level for an introductory psychology class. Its blend of theory and application is balanced beautifully."

I used this book in school and it was wonderful for my psychology class. It discusses all of the definite studies as well as gives a great understanding for psychological disorders. At the end of eah chapter is a great study guide, which helped prepare me for all of my tests.

Overall I'm not a fan of the book however amazon did a great job mailing it to me on time. One major problem that I am having is that some of the pages are missing in the book!

I have notice when taking the test, the answers in this book are not very clear, other students in the class are saying the same. The wording they use is not clear. I'm trying to explain this right. When the test ask you a question and you look it up in the book, it's not very clear what that answer should be. I hope everyone knows what I mean when I say that.It's not cut and dry, the test question, and then theres your answer in the book. That's not how it is. It's all about the wording they use, it's not clear enough. Other than that it has tons of information.
