Even after getting a Master's degree in Educational and having spent 2 years in Educational Psychology - there was much to learn from this classic.
Even if the authors can not write, doesn’t the publisher employ style editors? Have the editors ever heard of breaking up excessively long sentences into short sentences? Ditto paragraphs? Using active verbs?
The preface and back cover copy explain that the book is intended to serve about six purposes and reach six audiences. A single book can not do that, any more than a rifle can aim at six targets at the same time. The result would be sad even if the authors could write intelligibly.
I found Chapter 7 almost the only useful part. Use the rest to line your parrot cage.
P.S. The discussion of the Milgram experiments and the Kitty Genovese incident are superficial and inaccurate, and should not be relied on. The brief discussion of the Bennington College study suggests the factors that turn normal, sensible young women into knee-jerk leftists in to time at all. But such occasional useful tidbits can not redeem this mess.
