Im currently taking Personality Psychology. While this book is good it could have been written in a more concise and direct way for students. The first test i took i noticed the difficulty with actually grasping the concepts. Being that most psychology courses are a repeat of information and different perspectives and scientific explanations of theories, I felt the authors could have been a bit more direct and to the point. In my opinion they took a very conversational position rather than a textbook application of the scientific data collected overtime. Im used to a textbook giving more vocabulary and to the point explanations of the theories. Although I could deduce the meanings of the major theories that have stood the test of time through multiple replications of the data collected, it is likely because I already have a basis for the information from other Psychology courses and textbooks.
