About the Author
JANET BELSKY is a Lecturer in Psychology at Middle Tennessee State University, USA.
This book reads very easily. Not like other text books. The author uses lots of real life experiences to tie in concepts. PLUS it is written by an MTSU teacher. Always a plus….M-T-S-U! MTSU! Go, Raiders, go!
I loved this book! I am a psych major, and this book is a great way to introduce you to the field.
I read this book for my psychology class. What a great textbook. The author gives so many great examples and the topics are discussed in an easy to understand way. After reading the final chapter in the book, I just had to write this review because I enjoyed reading this book. You can really get absorbed in all of the topics. I like the way the book is organized and how Author Belsky gives opposing viewpoints. She also treats all cultures with respect, and you can glean that she is a compassionate human being. Textbooks are usually impersonal, but she gives personal examples, as well, which adds to the book’s appeal.
