  1. User:Vfrankel critiques this text as exhibiting right-wing bias, containing factual errors, and sees the text as symptomatic of broader, related issues in the teaching of psychology. (feel free to amend/correct this summary).
  2. I like the text book. I think that it is structured in a "user friendly" way and is not the usual use lots of big words people don't understand. The text is entertaining (well more than most anyway) and relateable while still conveying important theories and experiments. I wouldn't say I love reading the text and would read it in my spare time, though I have heard another student mention it, but it is in my opinion an excellent choice of text for the course.
