5.0 out of 5 stars very informative 4 Dec 2008
By Robert W. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
This book is an excellent undergraduate text. It provides a very fine review of most critical psychological issues within the legal system. Written by experts in the field, it provides confidence regarding content. It's well written and ought to be at least considered for undergraduate courses in psychology and the legal system.
5.0 out of 5 stars Educating Experience 4 May 2012
By Amy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has educated and helped me with the current class I am taking. Wrightman goes into detail how the mind works differently than we think--we don't give ourselves enough credit. I am currently taking a class that requires this material, but they only offer the ebook--I would much rather have the book in my hands. If you are taking any classes for Criminal Justice, then I would advise you to read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great condition 1 Jan 2012
By PennyTx - Published on Amazon.com
The book under review was for one of my criminal justice classes and it arrived right on time and was in perfect condition. When the college I attend only provides electronic books I airways go to Amazon. Com for the book(s) I need. In the past I have recommended Amazon.com and I will continue to in the future!
