5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome for intro. to psychology November 16, 2005
Format:Paperback
It seems that many other books in psychology do not offer information in such a broad and defined view to the wide content that creates Psychology as a science. I would recommend this book to someone instead of the For Dummies or Complete Idiots Guide series. The logic behind many concepts are shown in cartoons, pictures, and presentations. I would say this book, in many aspects, is descriptive.

This book includes the following:

- Diseases and disorders

- Cognitive science (learning, developmental stages, etc.)

- neuroscience/neurophysiology (schizo mind, neural connections)

- Psychophysics, which describe how the human body interprets information through their senses.

(THIS IS NOT IN A LOT OF PSYCHOLOGY BOOKS, VERY NECESSARY TO LEARN)

- Psychobiology and evolutionary genetics

5.0 out of 5 stars A good place to start November 9, 2005
By erin
Format:Paperback
For the beginning psychology student, or for someone who just wants to learn some of the basics, this is a good book.

I used to for a class and it is quite informative.

It teaches many of the psych terms and gives examples of how the ideas apply to real life. It also gets a little into the biological things having to do with psychology, but not real deep.

A few entertaining things are in there as well, like small comic strips to demonstrate their points in a humorous way.

I'm a college student and i'm sooooo glad i didn't have to purchase this book at our book store. I bought it here on Amazon with shipping for like 30-40 bucks less than the University's price. I give it two thumbs up! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than many October 5, 2010
By Rissa
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a required text for a college course. What I always want to know before purchasing a textbook is what EDITION is it? First ed.? 4th? 8th? Anytime a seller puts a textbook up for sale the EDITION of the book they're selling is the most important detail, which is usually not given by most sellers! The sellers need to educate themselves on this small issue. I find it amazing that most sellers do not know they will be skipped over for consideration without the "edition" information. In this case it was given to me by the seller and that is the main reason I purchased it from that seller. I knew I was getting the right edition according to the requirements of the course taken. The book was used, but in very good condition. I saved 50% on the cost of a new book, and it was delivered on time. Also, the seller's price was, of course, far more fair than my school's bookstore, and far more fair than any other Amazon seller's asking price for the same used edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars a nice introduction to the field October 10, 2008
Format:Paperback
As someone who had never taken even a token psychology lesson before, I found this book very easy to digest. The author frequently gives real-life examples of what he is talking about, making it much easier to follow along with the sheer amount of jargon that the field employs. The modules are fairly short, making for reading sessions that don't leave you with a headache. Myers has a sense of humor as well, working jokes into the texts as well as including popular comic strips that illustrate what he's talking about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Psychology as a Reference July 17, 2012
By Estee
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to review on previous psychology classes I had taken a couple of years ago. in college. The book was extremely helpful and had many basic concepts and ideas to explain psychology. The book has many pictures and diagrams of concepts, psychologists and where to obtain further information. I am glad I purchased the book because now my daughter who is a senior in high school will be able use it for her psychology class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome. April 11, 2011
By BPalmer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The books condition was exactly as listed and I got it right when I was told I would. I do have to add that this book is a REALLY good read. If you're interested in psychology this is the book to get. It covers all the right material for an introductory psychology class but it keeps it interesting with fun language, and even some jokes. Imagine that, a textbook in which the author jokes with the reader. AMAZING!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exploring Psychology, Seventh Edition, In Modules April 25, 2011
By Pamela
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very impressed with the price, the condition, and the speed with which I received the Psychology textbook. I didn't find out what the required textbook for this class was until the day that the class began. Since I (like everyone else) am low on funds, I was afraid I would be paying out the wazoo or waiting 2 or 3 weeks for the book to arrive. Luckily, I found Amazon and everything worked out great.
