Book Review #585
Psychology by Carole Wade and Carol Tavris
Rating: three stars (out of four)
This book was actually fairly interesting. Sure, there were always some concepts that I wasn't quite sure that I got, but after reading the chapter and their examples, I felt like I was starting to get a hang of things. I also thought that a second reading over the vocabulary helped as well. Some of the pictures were a little weird/disturbing/sad/totally random, but I appreciated how they threw in humor along with the lesson. There were various comic strips littered throughout the chapters to illuminate a point or example. I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend even if you didn't have to take a general psych class, but just wanted to do some independent studying.
