I am continually amazed that reviewers cannot distinguish between reviewing a book and reviewing the condition a book might have been in when it arrived after shipment. A previous review of Thorne and Henley gave this text a two-star rating because of physical defects in shipment. The reviewer fails to actually review the book which is one of the better history and systems of psychology texts for use in the college classroom. I make this evaluation on the basis of having taught an upper division undergraduate course twice with this text: it has a superior integration of major figures in psychology's history and what they actually contributed in advancing the field. For many student who might be preparing for the GRE subject exam in psychology, this text would be an excellent way of reviewing a vast range of important materials in psychology. The writing is fluent and persuasive. I suspect that most readers of this text -- whether faculty or student -- will find it a solid source to understand the multiple ways the concepts of psychology are interconnected.

This is the best text book I have ever read. I needed this book for a course I took but was able to borrow it. After the semester was over -last- week- I gave back the book I borrowed and purchased this one.
Great book it tells the entire story about beginning of philosophy as well as psychology.

The book is pretty heavily used. Lots of dog earing and highlighting everywhere which wasn't what I was expecting and hopefully will not cause issues when I return the rental but everything else is perfect.

I bought this for a intro level psych class. I thought I would sell it afterward, but there's lots of good info covering psychology fundamentals that could help with research. Interesting stuff, albeit sometimes dry.
