Psychology themes and variations is a great introduction to the study of psychology. It is written in part by award winning university professor Doug McCann who makes the subject vibrant and entertaining. The text is easy to follow and the large quantity of pictures and thematic reminders makes it particularly useful for the visual learner. I still remember many of the vivid examples Doug and his writing partner Wayne Weiten offer in each chapter.
This is a Canadian text using Canadian examples in a Canadian context. If you are hoping to get a overview of the subject of psychology, you cannot make a better choice than this book. If you are interested in the subjects of consciousness, relational psychotherapy, meditation and hypnosis (elements I use today in my private practice) you will find this book supportive of these sometimes overlooked elements as both the medical model of psychotherapy and the relational model are explored fairly equally. I know from conversations with professor McCann, that his views on depression are that it is a relationally influenced condition, which perfectly suits the relational component of my work as a therapist today using psychodynamic psychotherapy, couples therapy and hypnotherapy ([...]). Good luck in your psychology studies, I hope you get to love this book as much as I have.

The books arrived a couple of days after I ordered them and they were packaged beautifully. The books themselves are in mint condition. I am very impressed with Specialty Books of Saskatchewan and I would definitely recommend ordering from them.

Quality is as expected for the hardcover and shipping was fast. From a students perspective, cheaper online versus in the bookstore.
