5.0 out of 5 stars Accessible and engaging overview. 26 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fantastic book. I found it was written in a very engaging and interesting style. I bought the book to give me a basic overview of Health Psychology for a exam I was sitting. Whilst it would never be enough to just use this book on its own for revision, it was invaluable for telling you the basics in such a user friendly way that you remember a lot of the interesting studies she discusses.
I would recommend this book not just for anyone who is considering taking a Health Psychology class at university but anyone with an interest in this field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic little book! 20 Dec. 2012
I bought this book to help with an assignment and it certainly did that. A great little book, easy to follow and a lot smaller than some of the other psychology books, yet with loads of information.

I was very pleased with the condition of this book. Although I have not gone into great detail with its contents, it appears to be just what I need.
