This introduction text represents a "tour de force" in dealing with a complex subject. Psychology is divided into 5 sections dealing with Action, Cognition, Social Behavior, Development, and Individual Differences. Each chapter contains the biological basis at work, because, as the authors so beautifully put it "we aren't just minds; we are minds embodied."
This book is for the serious student; the dabbler, and those whose understanding of psychology is limited to pop psych-type self-help, psycho-babble will be bored.
An outstanding, scholarly work worthy of reading.

I've used the text for my honors section of Psych 101 and as a source for lecture material in my other sections. IMHO, this the the best textbook for Intro Psych that I have ever come across in terms of the depth of material presented. It is, however, probably too difficult for the large lecture hall sections or sections taught entirely by graduate students. For these sections I would recommend David Myers' textbook. Much more student-friendly, and still an excellent source of information. Fridlund, et al., is still the gold standard.

Great for learning the basics of psychology in a comprehensive, thorough, easy to understand manner. I used it for my university freshman psych course, and even though the professors had to add some additional information to the texts, it served as a great guildline for psychology majors.

Factually, this book gives a solid introduction to Psychology. As a textbook, however, there is considerable room for improvement. The chapter summaries at the end of the chapter are basic and short-- it provides a quick summary, but no review questions, practice quizzes, or suggestions for further explanation in different areas of Psychology. Compared to other textbooks I have used that are very similar to this one, this was by far the worst. The companion workbook that goes along with this book is also unimpressive when compared to workbooks for similar textbooks.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Actually I'm reviewing the paperback edition; Amazon has a bug in this one.
I wanted to buy the "text book" of Psychology so I checked the hardcover, there in the tab "other editions" I noticed a paperback edition (which was $100 cheaper) so i followed the link, after reading the reviews and "looking inside the book" I decided to buy the paperback edition (the reviews and the "look inside the book" were supposedly for the paperback edition).
The problem was when I received the book... it wasn't the book but the "study guide" (which is worthless without the book) I went back to Amazon and checked carefully and alas when I went to the paperback edition there is a slight change in the title (which one doesn't check again because it's supposed to be the same book) but the reviews and everything else is the same which is VERY misleading.
I already sent them an e-mail asking them to change this, but for the meantime be careful.
P.S: I rated with 3 stars because I had to put something I'll fix it when I get the hardcover edition and I can actually use it.

This book is great. I expected, yet another textbook that is dull and difficult to read and understand; this textbook, however, is filled with humorous interjections, along with complex information presented in a simple way.

The textbook had substantial writing in it, including large sections of underlining and notes in the margins. The book was usable, but I would not consider it "Good" quality. I paid $14 for it, but when it arrived it had a $2.99 price tag attached to it. The quality would be acceptable if it were resold for $3-5 dollars, but for $14 I expect better.

This book gives you a great overview at the field of psychology. Psychology is a diverse studie and this book takes you to all of the great topics of psychology. The best book if you want to know more about psychology or take courses in it. Take it from me, I have a university degree in psychology.
