Format: Hardcover
The book has definitions at the end of each chapter instead of having a glossary. A lot of what I believe to be important aspects of Cultural psychology were not elaborated on, everything was difficult to find (sometimes what I needed wasn't even in the book). Barely used it all year, way too expensive for what it is.

The thought it was ok to send me the instructors edition without asking if I would be ok with that. Given that this is listed as a normal book before they sent me the wrong item there should have been some type of communication that it is not as it was listed.

This book was ordered for my Cross-cultural Psychology course and was easy to read, the examples were interesting, and the glossary terms and references were very helpful too.

I love this book. The condition was outstanding and there were no marks inside. I will be keeping this after school is over and going into my graduate program.

This is terribly confusing, at least for my style of learning.

It provides SOME basics, some theories and concepts, and a LOT of studies. I like to have even amounts of both, but when an entire section is a cultural comparison based on previous studies, instead of telling me how to read and interpret these studies for myself... Or how to understand future studies, or contradictory studies, or anything at all about theory... Well.

Bottom line: it's ok, but I'd much rather read something that's more scientific based and less, "well in the past we've found the Japanese babies are calmer than Chinese babies, who tend to be calmer than African-American or European American babies." Who cares?! Tell me how to do or read or understand these, and the basis of how the study was conducted!
