I was reluctant at first to purchase this book as one of my course colleagues insisted it was only for A-Level students. However, after reading numerous reviews I was persuaded to buy it. It arrived today and the assumption my colleague made in regards of it being a 'A-Level book' is completely false. It is THE reference book in psychology with every core concept in psychology covered. And what is more, even though it covers the vast majority of core topics, it does not comprimise in detail. There are also excellent illustrations in the text which I'm sure will appeal to the 'visual' learners with very clear and concise captions. As this is the latest edition it is very contemporary and up to date with modern psychology. And lastly, the front-cover ain't bad either.

I knew Richard Gross as a teacher at a London College. He was an exceptional teacher. He had just published the first edition of The Science of Mind and Behaviour at the time.., and it quickly became popular. I still have it now (it helped me occasionally in Uni as well). Now my 16 year old son is studying Psychology at AS level and I will be buying the latest edition for him. I have no doubt that it will be as useful to him as the original edition was to me.

How often is an author able to produce a multigenerational study aid book of this type?

Psychology- The Science on Mind and Behaviour is pretty much the bible for anyone studying Psychology at a degree level. I have rated it 4 stars because it covers literally everything that I have studied however it does not go into very much detail within each topic. This is defiantly a very useful book, which is great to use as a starting point for anyone studying interested or studying Psychology.

Essential for any psychology student, this book offers an overview of all of the basics, in-depth information of the important bits . If your reading list for your course lists this book, I'd suggest buying a copy for yourself as it's likely to be in high demand at the university library.

I bought this book during A-Level psychology and continued to use it during my degree in the same subject. It offers a good starting point for understanding a topic.

The book is divided into 7 parts: the nature and scope of psychology, the biological basis of behaviour and experience, cognitive psychology, social psychology, developmental psychology, individual differences and issues and debates.
Each subtopic has diagrams, pictures, key points and studies. I particularly like the Ask Yourself questions which encourage you to think about the information given rather than just accept it.

This book is one of the first places I go to if I’m about to start work on a topic as it offers a broad overview. It offers concise and easy to understand information for getting to grips with a topic as a whole.

I’d recommend to A-Level psychology students who are looking to get a bit ahead of their classmates, or undergraduates who want a great reference for any topic they might possibly encounter.

Format: Paperback
The book is detailed and yet incredibly easy to read. The very attentive reader shall identify some dry humor in-between the lines that make the book all-the-more amusing. The subject is facinating and the books format inspires one to read it as if it were literature; furthermore, it is (to understate the matter) TOO easy to sift through this (incredibly large) book, and find exactly the information you were looking for.

First Psychology book I bought (I think) - I got this and read the whole thing in the summer between the two years of A-level study - a great introduction to many topics (beyond the A-level syllabus), in my opinion! I still have my copy several years later, and recommend it to my students early-on. I also think it's great as a quick reference to read up a reasonably-detailed knowledge of a topic that you need to get a grasp of!

I ordered this book in my first year of university and it's been a life-saver right through to my final year! It covers a huge variety of topics and is a brilliant starting place for assignments and wider reading in general. I highly recommend it for any level psychology student.
