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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 9 Oct 2005
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Foremost Psychology Overview Textbook 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing !!! 4 Oct 2006
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent overview of the subject. 15 Sep 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money 24 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback
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!
