5.0 out of 5 stars Concise and Thorough Overview, 12 Jun. 2014
For those who are studying psychology at either High School or University level, this will prove a very worthwhile textbook. It covers the main psychological approaches, ranging from the biological approach to the Humanistic approach, and goes into each of these approaches in a level of considerable depth. Although not comprehensive (no psychology textbook could be), this textbook is very useful in that it describes everything a clear, concise, understandable way. It also has 'further consideration' suggestions after every section, suggesting thinking activities which will be of benefit to the student of psychology.

In conclusion, this textbook provides a great introduction and background to many areas of psychology, and also manages to be articulate, concise and understandable. I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in psychology.

5.0 out of 5 stars and with an Appendix on Research Methods and Statistics in Psychology plus a very useful Glossary of Terms, 15 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: APPROACHES TO PSYCHOLOGY (Kindle Edition)
A superb introduction to the five main theoretical schools in contemporary Psychology (Cognitive, Behaviourist, Biological, Psycho-dynamic and Humanistic). Toped and tailed with an introduction to 'Behaviour and Psychology', with additional chapters on 'Perspectives on Development', Perspectives on Abnormal Behaviour &c., and with an Appendix on Research Methods and Statistics in Psychology plus a very useful Glossary of Terms..

An eminently readable, comprehensive, balanced, critical, well referenced, and well set-out/structured text. Now in its 6th (updated)edition, it has become something of a classic. Not the cheapest introductory texts in Psychology you can buy but the best value!
