Review

"In my view, Social Psychology, 3rd Edition, by Smith & Mackie, has many advantages over its competitors. It presents, and consistently reiterates, themes that operate across areas of social psychology, giving social psychology a "unified" feel that is often absent from other textbooks. Even more importantly, this is a text that does not treat social psychology as if it were intellectual candy, but instead presents a meaty, comprehensive, sophisticated, and nuanced view of the field. It manages to maintain intellectual rigor while maintaining a high standard of readability, often conveying and contextualizing findings in terms of engaging real examples. In my opinion, this book is an excellent way to introduce people to the science of social psychology!" - John J. Skowronski, Professor of Psychology, Northern Illinois University, USA

"This book puts an end to the notion that social psychology constitutes a collection of loosely related topics. In a revolutionary organization of the field, Smith & Mackie identify the fundamental principles of human motivation, cognition, and behavior that form a common undercurrent for all of social psychology. Not only does this integrative approach present a more coherent view of the field, but it also encourages students to understand social psychology, rather than simply remember the facts." - Jeffrey W. Sherman, Professor of Psychology, University of California, Davis, USA

Clear, readable... a very good book Sept. 2 2008
By Han - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An easy-to-read, very informative book, covering a wide area of interest. Not just the details, but also the larger picture is well-presented.

This text book is well thought out and well written. The professors who collaborated on this endeavor definitely had college students in mind. The paragraphs are not too long and are broken up with summaries (in blue) which really alert you to the important facts that will follow.

If only more text books were written with this high tech generation in mind.

Informative, but not capturing April 2 2008
By L. T. Lancaster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"Social Psychology" by Smith and Mackie is an ok text. It isn't great, but it doesn't totally fail to inform the student about the issues that social Psychologists of today face. The bottom line is that the book has an overabundance of examples, but wading through them to find the meaning is difficult.

Aesthetically the book is terrible. All blacks and light blues, it wears on the readers eyes. Unlike publishers like Wadsworth, Psychology Press seems to not be too keen on keeping the reader focused on the book. This may not bother all people, but reading about norms for an hour and a half is bland on it's own. And when adding few variations to the text, it becomes quite the chore.

2 out of 5 because the book does it's job. It just doesn't do it very well.
