It's definitely interesting and I did enjoy reading it. Though some of his writings are being disproved, it's still very interesting.

It started out pretty good, but as the book went on, it became clear the author was rather opinionated and political. I was expecting a book that would give me perspective on human nature... many aspects of it... but it was mostly his thoughts. I am very disappointed.

The book is more directed toward raising children than what I was interested in. I wanted something more general in human nature.

This book has some decent information on learning and other basic areas of psychology, however, the book seems to adhere to the behaviorist model of psychology throughout the book. For instance when the author writes about transference of learning he only talks about direct transference and not about more indirect transference of learning. Essentially the book views learning as a basic "stimulus-response" action where habits and schemas are formed simply by means of providing material and skills to be learned (srimulus) and drilling them into students' minds until learned (response) and providing reinforcements to learn the skills. It doesn't cover how certain elements of experience interact in the learning process and doesn't exactly give credence to critical thinking and hypothetical thought that a more structural or cognitive school of thought would provide. It oversimplifies learning in my opinion. Another issue I have with parts of the book is it reads too much like a philosophical text quite often rather than a scientific one and is filled with the author's opinions such as stating the most important moral values which is definitely a debatable topic. Maybe I'm criticizing it too much as it's meant as an introductory text, but I do not care for the oversimplification it appears to provide.

A very excellent book for self-beginners, learning the about the pshychology of humans. A must read book. I reference back to the book every once in a while.

I recommend this book for those who study psychology and to those interested in the field. It is written in terms anyone can understand and is interesting.
