I was required to read this book for a class and I can honestly say this is the only textbook I have read start to finish and it held my interest.

I used this book for my Psychology and the law class and I was very pleased. Most textbooks are dry and dull but this one keeps your interest and reads like an enjoyable book. Each chapter has a few real life stories incorporated to the particular lesson and presents the information in a clear and understandable way such that even if you weren't supplementing the book with a lecture, you would still be able to fully comprehend what is written.

I had to buy this book for an introductory course to legal psychology. This book is very well written, it is very engaging and covers all the main theories and cocepts related to Forensic and Legal Psychology.

Once you open a page to a chapter YOU WILL NOT WANT TO PUT IT DOWN.

Loved this book! It is an extremely interesting book that was hard to put down. Personally I believe it should be a book that all Middle School students should read and then be required reading again in college. Professionals who often forget what tragedies can occur by the misuse of information need a reminder. This book does it with case illustrations that are not drawn out to where you need a degree in law just to understand what is being conveyed. My teenagers have become interested in this book as well. That alone should tell you, it is a book that will capture you, shake your beliefs, and open your eyes! It will stay in my personal library and a discussion in my household.

The book arrived quickly and on time for the class. The writing is great and the material is interesting. If you like psychology and are interested in law, this is a great book. I found myself reading the text book and enjoying it. Which is not something I normally do.
Great book! Positive experience.

I was required to read this book for a class and I can honestly say this is the only textbook I have read start to finish and it held my interest. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a better grasp on psychology, also anyone interested in family law or forensic law. The text is very easy to understand, there are a lot of pictures and diagrams and explanations of key words.
