Customer Reviews

There are better books out there that do the job way better.
JZ
All the chapters in this book are pretty much useless and have no practical use (that's why they're called theories!!!).
Eugene Suh
The cover of the book is ripped and pages throw-out the book are badly worn.

Comprehensive but dry. Difficult to get through, especially by the end of the semester. Surely there are more interesting ways to present this information.

This is a great paperweight. The theories and content are presented in a completely indiscernible method. No glossary and barely an index. My instructor keeps preaching about how great it is, but I continue to look at it and use other books and the internet to assist me in class. Can't wait to write my semester review on this hunk of crap.

Dense and hard to understand. The book has too many theories crammed in, that are poorly executed. If this is your text book be prepared to find outside resources to better understand this material.

Is useful for class, but there are other books that make the theories more interesting to read.

This book has too much filler and is very uninteresting (I was trying hard not to doze off, but this book is extremely soporific). All the chapters in this book are pretty much useless and have no practical use (that's why they're called theories!!!). Note to the authors of this book: If you're going to write a book about theory, at least add some humor or stories that keep us interested. The only chapter worth reading in this dull, mundane book was the chapter on Psychodynamic Theory. What a waste of money this book is!

Goes on unnecessary tangents that take away from the point the readings are trying to make. Poorly organized. It's really just bad philosophy, totally inaccessible and takes multiple pages of tangents to give a comprehensive understanding of the material. There are better books out there that do the job way better.
