    Fantastic textbook. Everything is stated very clearly, with concise, practical examples. I did not test the online elements, but the exercises in the chapters to help the reader understand important concepts are a brilliant touch.

    If I were to ever teach a psychology class, I would probably use Kalat's textbook as a supplement to my course. He explains concepts in a way that is easy to understand and presents a good number of "Try-It-Yourself" activities to help students remember the important stuff.

    For an introductory book on psychology I thought this eas a great text to read for class. No topic was too difficult and the coverage seemed pretty complete. Kalat looks at a broad spectrum of psychological topic and also is able to piece together a history of psychology as a science.

    Other than Kalat's obvious prejudice against religion in general, I really enjoyed this text. It was humorous, well-written and definitely memorable. I actually read the 8th edition and expect the 9th is even better.

    Just looking for a representative textbook... I took an intro course at Metro State in 71-72. Again at CU in the fall of 1972. Date is approximate.

    I AM DONE WITH THIS ONE!!!!!! It wasn't the most borning textbook I have ever read and was pretty easy to understand. I am just glad that I only have to study before it's time to take the final!

    Although it's for a class, I'm truly enjoying Kalat's frank, amusing writing style. It's refreshing!

    I've spent so much time and energy trying to get people to use this book, I figured I should actually read it.

    This is the first Psych book I've ever read back from Psychology 100. And it's still my most frequently consulted reference.

    I love psychology and I liked how the author wrote the book like he was talking to us.

    We used 10th edition of this book as textbook. It gives a general tour and introduction on all psychology areas.
