I needed this for an introductory psychology course and it got the job done. I used it a grand total of two times. Aren't most textbooks kind of useless?

Stay away from the A la Carte edition!! The pages are loose leaf thin and tear super easy. Its a big book. I've had to use a ridiculous amount of paper reinforces. Save your time and money and just get the bound book.

This is my absolute favorite psych book. I actually bought this book for fun, not for a class. This book is so cheap for what you will get. It is really informative and on a really good elementary level, great for beginners in the psych field, but also great for psych students further in their degrees as a book to refer back on. Great quality and great lessons.

It fit it's purposes. I needed this textbook for a class, so I bought it. It was filled with a lot of good information I needed for quizzes, lots of interesting information. But at the end of the day, it is a textbook, a necessity for any student taking a class which this book is required. Eh, there you go.
