The truth doesn't fit their agenda.
K Michael Lindbloom

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Pros: Very comprehensive in subject matter, good grouping of information, gives definition of key words at side of each page, contains summaries at the end of each chapter

Cons: Not visually appealing (only black and blue ink used, even in pictures), The sections are long and drawn out, no chapter review questions are given to test proficiency.

Overall, I thought I must have recieved an old textbook due to the lack of visual stimulation which helps me absorb the information. But I do have the most recent copy. I wonder why they would cut corners in this regard even though the book sells for as much as other books that make reading easier by providing a more pleasant visual experience.

But it is a college level book, so I can't complain too much. The quality of information is good.

I was greatly offended by the subtle attempts of the authors to influence the students' opinion of socialism. Coupled with an explanation of how to influence people, it came across as indoctrination. They clearly had their own agenda and it wasn't to present objective information on how human beings behave.

What these Californians desire is to see is an America where the people are completely disarmed and subject to the will and force of an elite few. They expect people to believe that a corrupt government, taxing people into the ground, and re-distributing wealth to people with more skin color will create a better world. What they are teaching is not true tolerance or equality, but a new form of prejudice that is thinly disguised as tolerance.

It is apparent from their writings that they lack a firm grasp of Southern history, culture, and present day challenges-never-mind the principles the Unitied States Was founded on. They love to bring up racism and the South, but fail to explain the Civil War was started over tariffs, not slaves. Of course they're not going bring up the buildings built on top of slave graveyards in New York; that doesn't fit their southerners-are-the-devil agenda.

They bring up violence in the South, but fail to mention that cities with the highest rates of gun crime are some in the north with the strictest gun control laws, like Chicago and Washington D.C. Why? The truth doesn't fit their agenda.

I am a descendent of immigrants (legal immigrants) who learned to speak English. Expecting people to legally immigrate, speak English, and obey our laws isn't racism; it's law and order. It's easy for some city slickers from L.A.

Good book, got for college class. Not one I will be keeping as it has a lot of repeated info from other classes. Great book if you are just starting out in Psychology. Easy to understand.
