I bought the book used with the status being "very good." The pages were kept in great condition with little creases or bending of the pages (especially the corners). However, I was disappointed with the highlighting. There was a significant amount which normally wouldn't bother me but the previous user used an orange highlighter so it was hard to ignore. They also proceeded to highlight full paragraphs. It was distracting and obnoxious but I saved a lot of money.
Text: Covers the background and the theories of personality of various psychologists. Each chapter covers a different psychologist. If you are a Psych major this is an excellent foundation for further study. If you are not a Psych major...informative but loaded with terms and difficult to distinguish the differences in theories for test purposes.
