This book is interesting to anyone interested in the topic of psychology. It handles almost every topic, from biology to social mechanisms. There are lots of nice real-life examples, interspersed with humorous cartoons. Every time when someone asks me what the study of psychology entails, I lend them this book because it is instantly illuminating. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
We used this textbook for my AP Psychology class, and it served its purpose well. The book does an excellent job at covering everything and giving an introduction to the field. Plenty of good examples, as well as diagrams and such to help explain, are given. My only complaint is that the text is often incredibly dry, making reading difficult; but if you can look past that, it provides a very good "introduction to psychology", as the title says it will.

Just as the authors said, 'The Tradition Continues', this work explains every aspects and perspective of Psychology to me in depth. I think this is a 'must-have' for all beginning Psychology students.
