This is a mammoth book, one to be dipped into on an 'as-needs' basis rather than read from start to finish. If you are looking for in-depth information on any particular subject this isn't the book to buy but if you want an easy to use resource that covers the basics and the most salient points across this interesting and large field of study it's well worth buying.
I am a student nurse and have found it invaluable for completing documentation and assignments. It's very easy to read and well laid out, the chapters are sub-divided; key words in the text are highlighted and information is supported with diagrams, colour, tables and bulleted lists making it comfortably accessible to different learning styles.
It is well referenced - making tracking down the seminal and/or other relevant texts fairly simple, has an extensive bibliography, a good index and a glossary to add meaning to terminology. At the end of each chapter there are self-assessment questions and practice essay questions for those who want to test out their own understanding. The book is supported by a website but the resources there are primarily for teachers/lecturers rather than students, although still worth a visit; each chapter though also has a list of websites where further information can be found, although some of these don't seem to exist anymore.
This book may seem expensive to students on limited income and because of this I dithered for quite some time before I bought it but it's now become the most used and useful book on my shelves.

A very balanced introduction to the subject with pointers to further study. Psychology is not the clear cut science I imagined - still a lot to be explained.

Compulsory reading list book. Easier than some, but with core concepts thoroughly explained with examples and explanations given. A good support throughout the course.
