Did not expect to receive leaflets and no book cover just pages on sheets of paper
I bought this book many years ago when I was a freshman in school when I had a different major. I found this book very interesting. and I believe the book does a great job at explain everything. The human mind is very exciting and interesting. Everything in the book is full of good quality information. I since have resold the book but only because I no longer needed the book anymore. If I had kept the same major I would have most likely kept this book.
This kindle book was absolutely terrible to work with for class. It was one of the worst experiences I have ever had with any form of technology.

First of all, there are no page numbers so good luck trying to follow along in class. It gives you a percentage of how much of the book is complete but not a page number. It would be great if there was an option to view it with the original page size but no, have fun guessing where the rest of the class is. Is this feature too hard to include? Many of the diagrams were too small to see. Even on my computer the words in some diagrams are simply illegible due to the size. Oh, it's a computer so maybe you can zoom in? Nope. There is no way to zoom in on these diagrams so if any important information is included, you're not going to get that. On the other hand, images that normally take up one full page will often be split down the middle, onto two separate pages. *click* see the first half, *click* see the second half. If you accidentally highlight something (really easy to do, takes 2 clicks) there is no way to remove it. What? Why? I understand that if I highlighted something in a real textbook, I couldn't "undo" it but this is on the computer. There is no reason for "undo" to not be included. Navigating is a pain. If you're in another window and click back to the Kindle, you will probably turn a page, or highlight something, or look up a word. Why can't I click on it without it doing something?

I will NEVER EVER buy a Kindle book again, and I have made a point to tell everyone I know how terrible the user interface is and the incredibly bad functionality. I can't believe how unusable this was. It made work for my class an absolute DREAD. I don't see how Amazon could release a textbook on the Kindle and have it so dysfunctional (and charge $66 for it). Kindle needs some MAJOR improvements before I will even consider another book for it. If you are considering buying this book for the Kindle, DON'T DO IT. It is a waste of money and time trying to get it to work properly. I am sorely disappointed in this product. What a waste of money!
The ISBN number might not match the one my professor recommended but as long as you make sure its the 11th edition you'll be fine. my best advice for this binder version is to buy at least a 3 inch binder because a 1 inch wont cut it. otherwise it arrived on time, perfect condition. satisfied.
Good book for school. Hate the loose-leafyness. So annoying.
This was rented for my college-age Granddaughter. It arrived in like-new condition. I would have loved to purchase it for her but it was terrifically expensive. It was her favorite of all her psychology books.
Product was in horrible condition. It was a beat up, ripped NON-BINDED version of the textbook. That's what I get for wanting my college textbook for cheap though, right? I'm not sure if I'm renting this or not, but I'm putting it in a binder.
