4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed and easy to understand 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
'Cognitive Psychology' presents itself as a student textbook with explanations of theories and references to numerous (in fact many) case studies and experiments. Its content ranges from memory to meta-cognition (my favorite) to ideas of consciousness and perception. The book also comes with pictures to accompany text and very detailed, succinct writing which makes the book accessible, in my opinion, to a non-psychology student who simply has an interest in this fascinating field. Would I recommend it? Indeed: a must for the avid psychology-buff and the serious student.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent course textbook 19 Jan 2012
This book is excellent as a course textbook - it lays everything out in a very user-friendly manner. The text itself covers a lot of important ground, and there are exercises to do which really help you to understand for yourself exactly what the research is about.

There are bullet point summaries, key words and suggestions for further reading at the end of every chapter.

Also, Matlin has a very enjoyable tone to her writing - she really tries to engage the reader and get them to relate the material to their own experience, which really helps when trying to understand a new concept.

I would thoroughly recommend this textbook to anybody doing degree-level Psychology.
