5.0 out of 5 stars a deep and thoroughly readable introduction for the layman 6 May 2000
By thor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would expect a book on such intricate studies such as this to be difficult to read and confusing, but instead it leaves the reader with an incredible clarity of mind. The writing style is so engaging and effortless that you find yourself in the middle of a difficult subject before you know it. Actually, it reads like a novel, a novel of discovery.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for students of introductory psychology 7 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book when I took Introduction to Psychology several years ago, and now I use it in the classes I teach. It's a wonderful collection of classic studies organized by topic. The original articles have been edited, so that they are easy for the beginning student to read. This book is a great way to introduce the science of psychology to students.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Intro to Psychological Research 9 May 2008
By bookworm53 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm a psych major in college, so I naturally enjoyed reading about these important studies. However, I think anyone could enjoy this book. It's very readable and covers crucial research from all areas of psychology. Read about one study or all forty; this is a great book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good condensed version of psychological theories 27 Oct. 2004
By J. Hammitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was required reading for a graduate class I am taking. Most of the studies I had already learned in

undergraduate classes. But this book was a nice review of those theories and was an easy read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for Class. 19 July 2011
By LB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this as summer reading for my AP Psychology class. I could not put it down. I don't usually enjoy sitting down and reading a school book, but the way that the authors format the chapters makes everything so easy and enjoyable.
