Great book, fast delivery... Not the newest edition but just as good, really informative and great if your a first year psychology student as provides a general overview on most topics. Definitely recommend!

I bought this book for an introductory psychology class at Harvard, taught by one of the book's authors. The book does an excellent job of explaining pyschological concepts, detailing the progress of psychological science, and relating material to useful, real-world examples. It even keeps up an interesting, sometimes sarcastic sense of humor. Perhaps its best aspect is its organization: rather than fall into the trap of historical progression (William James believed... but Freud said... and Maslow theorized...) that ensnares many intro psychology books, this one is organized thematically and works exceptionally well. The history is still there, but it doesn't overshadow our present knowledge of psychology. Overall, excellent textbook.
