The overall book itself helps you understand the concepts of psychology and the most non-boring manner possible. It’s entertaining to read even if it is for a class! However, I am highly upset with Amazon for providing me with a damaged product, should have been reduced in price for this almost used appearance! There are bends on the top left, top right, and bottom right of the book. To to mention the cover is almost torn on the side. The pages within the book are also bent and the product is just terrible. One of my pet peeves for textbook is that the pages are even/straight with no bents…otherwise, I get distracted and annoyed with the book. I would demand a replacement or refund but I require this book for exams that are coming up. Great way to represent Amazon… providing a defective damaged product.
Its a great book for my class and even has a website. The publisher is only focused on topics that have been scientifically proven and is contrary to some of my beliefs.
The book is informative, but the loose leaf can be messy. If you want to resell your book, you will have to be very careful. Make sure to stick it in a binder (which I should have done anyway) and be careful not to pull the pages out of the metal rings. My copy did great to get me through my psychology course, but I wish I would have taken better care of it, it is a mess now and I will probably just have to throw it away.
