I had to buy this book for an introductory course to social and personality development. It's a good book, easy to read, well written and covers all the main theories and concepts of social psychology.

I've just started reading psychology and for me this was a really good book! It explains the complex development we make from new borns to adults in a very broad and clear way.

The headline says it all. Of course, I love the subject and the reading was appealing visually.

The book arrived on time and in good condition. Happy with the purchase.

This is a common issue with text books. Way overpriced. For the love of God, return the rental!! Other than the price, the book is good and the material is well presented.

Bought the E-version since I will be using the teachers power points more than reading the book but still need the book for reference. It was a very reasonable price and I loved the fact i could just upload it onto my iPad within 5 minutes.

Good material. Just wish the editors would have done a better job at proofing the book before sending it to press. Lots of spelling and grammar errors throughout the book.
