Richard speaks often at student and teacher conferences. In his spare time he is almost as devoted a Spurs fan as he is a husband and father of two daughters.

Product Description

Review

The original and best. Still the first point of reference for most psychology teachers. This book really has stood the test of time, I still treasure my first edition that I used at University.  However, the book is firmly up to date, and now contains interesting and relevant graphics and illustrations. A really well written and well structured introductory text, suitable for all Psychology specifications. I always recommend this book to new psychology teachers and students.

Book Description

Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behaviour has been described as the 'trailblazer in the psychology textbook revolution' and 'the psychology student's "bible"'. It has established itself as the benchmark introductory psychology textbook.

Format: Paperback
This is a truly marvellous book. The CD that comes with it is a fantastic learning aid. As a teacher of psychology it is a fabulous resource and one which has been recommended to my students. If you are looking for a psychology book to fill an amateur desire to learn a little bit more then I would not say this is for you, however, if your looking for depth and insight it is excellent. Accompanies Eysenck's Psychology for AS brilliantly. Get on it!

11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Vexen Crabtree on 1 Nov. 2006
Format: Paperback
With bulky introductions to all the main areas of psychology - social, cognitive, clinical, etc, this book presents both lots of detail and lots of scope. It made me interested in areas of psychology I hadn't previously thought much of. R. Gross excels at presenting psychology theories, studies and information in a clear way, even when explaining conflicting opinions.

This is an awesome book for anyone interested in not only psychology (as a textbook/bible), but also in humanity in general.

I couldn't believe it another Richard Gross Book, having used his previous edition for my first two years of studing psychology I am now going to buy this book after finding it in the college libary. Anyone thinking of taking up a course covering any psychology should give this a look, you would be missing out if you didn't.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Schopenhauer’s ghost on 15 Sept. 2009
Format: Paperback
Many of the people who teach psychology or write psychology textbooks, while undoubtedly very skilled, are nonetheless poor communicators. Not so Richard Gross. He writes lucidly and with sufficient detail to make even complex areas crystal clear. If you can only afford one text, let it be this one.

Great book, I use it more than the main one we have been set for my course at uni. Used it at A level too, it's not too complex, not too basic, but rather heavy to carry!
