This review is from: Textbook of Psychology, Textbook of Psychology Students' Handbook (Paperback)
I took the author's course at McGill University in the fall of 1994, and while Professor Donderi is a worthy scholar and lecturer, his textbook -- I regret to say -- is not up to par.
Yes, the information is accurate, wide-ranging, and reasonably up-to-date; it covers much, from personality theory to statistics, and neuroanatomy. But it is written blandly, with little joy for its fascinating subject. Clarity is wanting, too, since the entry-level psychology student craves, at times, a less technical explanation of the complex subject matter. The illustrations are equally lifeless and at times simplistic, when they need to be bold, evocative, and conducive to memory, as the anatomy of the brain structures are covered here, too...
