Editorial Reviews

Review

"Having reviewed the text, I am inclined to adopt the new edition. I was impressed by its organization, content and clarity, and especially by [the authors'] conscious intent to produce a textbook to serve as a teacher outside the classroom."

"The writing tone and style are perfect for my students. The Brehm, Kassin, and Fein text strikes a nice balance between accessibility and rigor."

"Chapter 5 was exceptionally well organized and covered racism and sexism thoroughly...This is an excellent chapter."

After a semester using the text i have come to the conclusion that the authors, Brehm, Kassin, and Fein, leave more questions then answers and that their sub-par sense of humor is more then just a waste of money. After reading certain sections i get the feeling that the authors do not clearly understand the issue at hand, but rather throw 15 different research studies at the topic covering their uncertainty and topping it off with a dire attempt at a joke leaving the reader completely ambiguous.

I'm not sold on social psychology. Part of my issue with this discipline is my personal fight to never let people pigeon-hole me and this seems to want to it on a grand scale. Some of the text does not help one see how issues of individual psychological development tie in to the study of social psychology. This is a great failing because many people no very little about this topic.
