2.0 out of 5 stars Social Psychology - Hogg et al 27 July 2005
I'm a mature psychology student and researched all sorts of social psychology books online for my degree course. This book looked interesting enough and the table of contents swayed me to buy the book.
When I received it I was impressed by the lay out and 4-colour of the book. It covers all the basics of social psychology.
the style the book is written in is too complex and advanced for a person new to the field. My vocabulary is by no means bad but I found this book to be a tad too articulate. Explanations of theories can be written in a more simple and contructive way than this book.
My advise is to look at other major texts in the field. Rather pick this one up as reference text later down the line when your social psychology knowledge is more advanced...

4.0 out of 5 stars First Year Psychology 8 Sep 2006
This is probably a bit heavy for someone who has never studied psychology before, but as my degree covers a lot of the topics my A Level covered I am finding it invaluable. It is full of references to studies so it is great as a stepping stone to further research for coursework etc. Also, it is the only book that is also on the reading list for my second year.

1.0 out of 5 stars My head hurts 7 Jan 2006
By A Customer
I am a second year Psychology student, who had not studied psychology previous to university. I was looking for a general textbook to cover my social psychology modules.
The layout of this book is pretty good and it covers a large range of topics. Unfortunately I found this book almost impossible to read, it's far to complicated for someone just starting out. As a reference aid I imagine it would be very useful, but if it's intended to introduce topics and provide a basis for understanding, then I would look elsewhere.
Frustrating to read- Almost impossible without already possesing a good level of knowledge- especially concerning psychological and scientific terms
