All that being said, the book is not perfect. Some topics are covered in depth, but others feel rushed and kind of glossed over. This isn't a deal breaker since the book is best used as an introduction to the course work any way, but it does seem odd to spend so much time on some areas while all but ignoring others. The chapter organization can be confusing at times- some topics which seem a bit complex are introduced before other easier to grasp topics. The chapter length is mostly standardized but in some cases the publishers have sacrificed information for pictures which aren't particularly helpful.
Overall the book is very solid and serves as a great way to introduce new students to the psychological field. The few flaws are easily overlooked.
