If you are in a class that requires this book, or if you're just interested in the history of psychology, this book is both well written, and informative. For me it is an excellent review of what I learned in my first year psychology course.

The book is good, but until the publishers make these book available on iBooks i will give them 1 star. I hate carrying around bulky books, especially since I have to take public transit for 3 hours a day (round trip).

HASH(0x9cbcbbc4) out of 5 stars Needed this for a web based class Feb. 1 2014

Scant "information". Bare-bones of what I was researching. I found this text to be a waste of money as soon as I opened it.
