This is a TERRIBLE book to get on Kindle. I've gotten numerous Kindle textbooks in the past with no qualms whatsoever. This book? It looks like a drunk monkey created the Kindle edition. The table of contents alone is ridiculous. They couldn't be bothered to even create titles that didn't run off the line or use spacing. The ToC is super hard to navigate just because you can't read it. They don't use page numbers either so you'll never be able to find anything. This is by far my worst Kindle purchase ever.

I can't comment on the quality of the book itself because I can't get past how terrible it is on Kindle.

I'm a psychology major, and this book has met my needs for my class, am in love with this book and I can see myself using this and reading this for years to come. I might even use it as a bed time book. Facinating stuff. What a wise investment.

Expensive and all over the place. Only purchased it because it was required by my college. Not much use for learning.
