Format: Paperback
This book is well written and clearly explains all of the major concepts of psychology in a way which is both interesting and easy to understand. It covers all of the major perspectives and specialties in the field of psychology, and gives real-life scenarios and examples to illustrate the different ideas and concepts. The book encourages critical thinking and has a scientific/academic approach to the subject material, which is something I like to see in any textbook.

This is a textbook for my Psychology course and I love the convenience of being able to purchase it on Kindle for about the same price my school store would have charged for a paperback. I did not know I could get MyPsychLab as a package deal, but that is okay. I am working with the site to try and get them tied together somehow. I later purchased a code from Amazon, but apparently it was not the right one and didn't work. $20 down the drain and I ended up paying another $55 on the site for access. MyPsychLab was not a requirement, but it is very helpful, especially the videos and interactive parts.

I really enjoyed the overviews this book gave but it DOES NOT include all the theorist you need to gain a full understanding of the subject. Psychology needs a lot of time to really "get it" and to apply this mental art well.

I bought this for a class im taking and the book looks beat up; it looks like there were 3-4 people who used it before to say the least. Some pages are torn and curled but everything inside is still okay apart from some underlined or highlighted words. I don't mind all these but if you do, just buy new books.

I used this textbook in my general psychology class in college.
All in all I would say it was a good book. It explores many important aspects of psychology.
It's a very good textbook when taking that subject in school.
(Like any textbook) At times the material can seem a bit dry, but overall it's a very useful text if you are interested in studying the field of psychology.

The cover itself was more beat up than I thought, it was split in half and bent every which way. Also had a bunch of stickers from previous textbook rental companies, but I guess when you buy used you run the risk of getting a decent textbook, or a beat up one. Aesthetics aside, cant beat the price in comparison to what they sell at college bookstores. So I still recommend.

The reason I am giving this book such a low review is because it was only compatible with my iphone. That being said, I had to read for class and do my work on my iphone 6 screen which was difficult. It was not compatible with my tablet or computer and they are both less than a year old so it wasn't the devices. It was extremely difficult to do work in my class with those issues so I would make sure it works on what you have before purchasing. Other than that, the material was great and easy to comprehend.

Fast shipping but the book was a mess!!! I know I'm only renting but I figured of I am paying tons of money to rent it then I could at least receive a presentable looking book that doesn't have crumpled up pages and rips all over the place. I just don't want to be held responsible for a cosmetically damaged book. I've rented from other places that would not rent books that look a mess. I definitely won't be renting from amazon again, although I still love the shopping site!
