This handbook is, as the name says, concise. On one hand, this is its appeal; it's much cheaper and serves as a good overview of social psychology topics. However, beyond your first year or two of advanced study, this handbook might be a little too general. It should be a good place to find useful citations, though, and may help with studying for qualifying exams. I will say that this handbook's breadth is impressive considering its limited space. Great for undergrads and for early graduate students, maybe less so for students who are further along and need more specifics.

Doesn't go into much detail about specific studies. Summarizes too much on information you would need to know more about in detail. I did not find it to be helpful. An intro book should have more explanations of points and talk more about the data and research.

The subject matter is interesting overall. They squeeze so much information in that it most of the information is generalized. Ordered for a class I am currently taking.

Very well written. Easy to read and understand. The chapters are well organized. This book is great if you want to have a serious understanding of social psychology

I purchased this book for an online graduate course. The language was technical for a social psychology book and it was very difficult to read. I hope others can get more from this than I could.

Good book and easy to reading. Social cognition and attribution theory are complicated to understand. I wish the author can explain with simple languages and illustrate with example.
