Kindle edition of this book is not working. When you first open this book in the Kindle app it shows you how to use it, pinch to zoom, double tap to zoom in text etc. None of it works. When you double tap screen goes dark gray, semitransparent. You can't read it on iphone. Ipad is unreadable as well as text is too small to read and you cant enlarge or zoom in.
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.
I've always been interested in why people behave as they do so this was a good book for me to read. It does what you'd expect and does it well and thoroughly. It's more of a reference book really. I certainly didn't understand everything I read but enough sunk in to make me feel it was worthwhile. My favourite bit was the lecturer who had a guy attend all his lectures encased in a black bag. His students reacted with hostility at first but gradually came to tolerate and then actually like the mysterious intruder. The experiment showed that we tend to react initially with suspicion to people who seem very different from us but once we get to know them, it's fine. I liked that! Took a while but I'm glad I read it
Found this book very interesting and also really well thought out and explained for someone who’s interested in Psychology as a subject or as something they want to study.
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.
An excellent reference book for anyone studying 1st year psychology - this book gives succinct information in digestible chunks. I use it as a way to get an overview of a particular theory, psychologist or experiment before doing in-depth study and I think it will work well as a revision tool as well. There's a whole series of these books, if they're all like this one, I'd recommend them for whatever you're studying!
