I hardly ever keep my textbooks, but if there is one I would consider keeping, it's this one. The formatting is wonderful, and the margins are lined with quotes related to the material in that section. I found Myers' writing style to be very informative and easy to understand, and he managed to make everything interesting. (To explain, I usually dislike the history of things like psychology because I find it boring, but Myers had me reading the history of psychology in earnest.)

If you have a choice of textbooks, I would recommend this one. It may not be the cheapest one out there, but it was very helpful, and it came with free access to online materials. The only con I can think of is that some of the boxes with examples of concepts were a little distracting, but that is something I could easily get past.

As a psychology major, had to order this book for an intro class and I must this provides a wonderful introduction to all basic topics of social psychology. It doesn't breeze over them either, it actually talks in an intellectual way in detail about each. You walk away from reading this with enough of an understanding to have a basic psychlogical conversation and with the hunger for more. I liked hte way the book was divided up becuase it worked in a very logical progression.

I hold several degrees, but it was this book that made me wish I was working on a Psych degree. Myers' book is interesting... it holds the reader's attention and makes you want to know more. I found myself wondering, "So, THAT"S why I behaved this way when such-and-such happened?"

I love to read... just about anything I can get my hands on, and when I am finished with a book, I give it away or donate it. Not this book. It is shelved in my permanent "keep" collection. If you ever thought about a career in psychology or clinical sociology, you really need to read this book.

True it's not cheap but it is well, well worth it. I have about 5-6 Psychology textbooks and this is my favorite out of all of them. It not only helps you understand psychology but the social sciences in mind as it helps you learn to think like a social scientist: a must, if you are in the field. I also highly recommend this blog dedicated to the social sciences for the psych-soc students out there:

Out of all my textbooks for university, this is one of three that I actually refused to sell back because I wanted to keep it. I have reread parts of it for fun and I often use it to explain things to my younger sisters. This book also helped me explain very sensitive subjects, such as cutting and anorexia, to the parents of younger family members who were struggling with these disorders. This book should not be used to replace a therapist or psychologist, but it does help you realize when you need to contact one. It helped me pass my class and assist some struggling family members, so this book was well worth the price. It also explained complex subjects at a level that was easy to understand.

As a physical text, the binding, print quality, and paper were all fine.

The book has the challenge of giving an introduction to psychology, a broad topic. I didn't expect anything incredibly in depth, but this book can be a maze of contradictions, half truths, and poorly asserted facts. The book does not go to great length to cover how psychological experiments are performed, how experiments are designed, or certain caveats in experimentation. The author would do well to spend more time on the science of psychology and less time collecting witty epigrams and New Yorker cartoons. The editors would do well to spend less time composing each page graphically, and more time critiquing when this book squarely contradicts itself.

This textbook would most likely be used in an introductory course for college freshmen, who have not yet developed the analytical skills to see the flaws in thinking presented here. It is a poor choice.

Hard cover book is very informative. I was required to purchase for a college course. This book was extremely sufficent to aid in my passing of the class. I would recommend to any General Psychology student or those interested in learning about psychology..

It is my firm belief that even if you're not taking Psychology 101, you should read this book as you begin your college career. Every chapter is informative, easy to read, and packed with side notes, examples, and case studies. This book should be a requirement for every new college student.

Learn why you're study time isn't productive, why you're sleep time isn't restful, and why the people you interact with respond to you the way they do.
