"Effective Writing in Psychology
can serve as an introductory guide to students and novice practitioners just learning about the skills required to communicate cogently in the social and behavioral sciences. For more seasoned professionals, the book can function as a ‘quick review’ reference source. Whatever the objective, this is a book worthy of consideration by any person who takes professional writing and speaking seriously.” (Metapsychology Reviews Online
"A great resources for psychology students and academics alike, and would be useful addition to the book shelf … .A lovely pace and tone engage the reader in what is a rather dry topic and make it a pleasure to read." (Psychologist, December 2008)
“The quotations are not merely amusing or pithy; they effectively set the stage for what follows. The book anticipates both what students want and what they need. Beins and Beins have written a book that is much like Twain: An appealing mix of good humor and sound advice.” (PsycCritiques)
"This is an important book that students will use again and again for classes and for professional development activities to prepare exemplary reports in perfect APA format. Beins and Beins have eliminated the fear/intimidation factor many students experience when they prepare papers!"
–Stephen F. Davis, Texas Wesleyan University
"Where was this wonderful, witty, and useful book when I was a struggling psychology major? Kudos to the authors on a splendid job."
–Jane S. Halonen, University of West Florida
"Students and teachers of psychology will improve their research and writing if they follow the authors′ practical guidance in this superb book. My advice: Read it and heed it!"
–Charles L. Brewer, Furman University
