By Rose M. Spielman, PhD
Psychology is designed to meet the scope and sequence for the single-semester introduction to psychology course. For many students, this may be their only college-level psychology course. As such, this textbook provides an important opportunity for students to learn the core concepts of psychology and understand how those concepts apply to their lives. The authors strive to make psychology, as a discipline, interesting and accessible to students. A comprehensive coverage of core concepts is grounded in both classic studies and current and emerging research, including coverage of the DSM-5 in discussions of psychological disorders. The text incorporates discussions that reflect the diversity within the discipline, as well as the diversity of cultures and communities across the globe.
Stop Being CHEAP!!!!5By 8ATE9I can’t belive these people. This book is so much better than the PDF. Plus it is formatted so much better and much more appealing than the free PDF. I think it’s worth the $7.
They’re charging us for this?1By Gangman haterA waste of money. Greedy for a couple of bucks. Free literally everywhere else.

Price is outlandish2By OG_KristoffI have the book downloaded for FREE on a .pdf and in my nook, why does it want to charge me $6.99 for it here?
Amazing5By Sagittarius3002I love the book!
Waste1By rod munch.You can find this book for FREE online at the publisher website, openstax.org, so I am appalled that it is nearly $5 USD here.
iPad Optimized5By walleroverThe reviewer below complained that this textbook is not optimized for mobile. I disagree - it works great on the iPad and although reading a textbook on a small iPhone screen is not the most pleaseant, it still works just fine on mobile! I prefer this version over the PDF. Cool interactives too.
Wish I would've read reviews before purchasing....1By 2418Got this for a psych class I'm taking and now can't even use it. So far it feels like a waste.
OpenStax Intro to Psychology1By operafnThis book has not been formatted for a mobile device and should not have been sold in iBooks. It is completely unreadable/ unusable. Very disappointing and a waste of $4.99.
