$$$ Pricey. This book is required for a freshman psychology class. The explanations and terminology seem comprehensive and good for beginners in the field.

The book is easy to read. However, the way the book is organized leaves something to be desired. It is ok.

Introduction to Psychology is an amazing book for those who intent to make Psychology their profession or just want to know what makes man great. Who are humans really? What sets us apart from the animal world? Then, James Kalat's book is an excellent read!

Best-written textbook I have ever encountered, hands down. Interesting and informative, it felt more like reading an interesting nonfiction book than a textbook.

This book did not come with a required software that the new text comes with. I had to return it as the professor requires the software which is an additional $108.00 if purchase separately.
