There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I tried on macbook pro. New machine os 10.9. It wont even let me download the book in kindle software for mac. The same is with any of the books in this series.
i will ask for my money back. But how do you contact Amazon Australia? I can ask for refund but how do you let them know about this faulty digital book? Are you listening Amazon Australia. I ALSO WANT TO GO BACK TO MY AMERICAN AMAZON AS MY WHISHLIST IS THERE. IS IT SO HARD TO TRANSFER THOSE TO AUSTRALIAN SITE. REALLY? GOOD WAY TO LOOSE CUSTOMERS.

Took a while but I'm glad I read it
It’s theories and concepts are intriguing and easy to understand for a beginner or someone who has only briefly studied the subject as it explains things clearly and precisely.
It’s contents cover everything from its philosophical roots, behaviourism, psychotherapy and cognitive psychology among other subjects.
There is lots of hierarchy type tables along with graphs, pictures and big think piece quotes on the pages that sum up or try to explain the different concepts in sound bites, they stand out to help you try to grasp and remember what you’re reading.
It’s a colourful, well thought out and very interesting book that you can go back to again and again to study and soak up the subjects, theories and concepts within its pages.
The book acts as a good reference point for people who are either interested in psychology, or are perhaps currently studying the subject at A-Level.
Each topic is outlined with a brief history, the key concepts and a biography of the relevant psychologist.
This is one of many books which are available to purchase in the series.
On a side note, I brought this for my kindle and for a more visual-led book with diagrams and decorative features, the formatting came out quite well.
