Don't get excited it is a psychology textbook
on 6 December 2014
This is recommended reading for my course. Personally I find it dull and uninspiring and hate the layout with its tiny writing and flimsy paper so you cannot use highlighters. I think there is a much shorter and better book inside this one. However, it has to be said that most psychology textbooks are exactly the same. They seem to be able to suck the life (interest) out of the subject or offer anecdotes and 'jokes' to prolong the agony leaving you with 2 options: phone Nighine or repeatedly bang your head on your desk until you lose consciousness or your eyes drop out. I sometimes think reading these textbooks and research papers is like chewing cardboard - except you can choose not to do that.
