    Psychology, a revealing textbook

    For the beginning psychology students, this is an excellent book. More than that, I found it very revealing. It’s more than just perfunctory methods, chronological histories of the science, or other “how to’s” of the vocation. For this book is an interesting mix of these and professional as well as personal revelations. For example, there were a many occasions that the momentum of studying was interrupted with reflective pause regarding my own life experiences such as: “This is very familiar” or “I remember this.” The Hockenbury’s excellent research reveals many controversies in the science as well. Dr. Sigmund Freud most notably, whose students grew to disagree with his methods. That psychology is an ever evolving and controversial science is emphasized in every chapter. Especially the many “Science versus Pseudoscience” sections that reveals scams such as, memory enhancing herbs and many good-intentioned but false beliefs such as Phrenology. This arms the would-be patient with knowledge to make a better choice; the would-be psychologist or psychiatrist with a necessary foundation of professional ethics; and the student with a rewarding array of knowledge to augment his or hers studying for many subjects especially the memory chapter methods which is a constant work-in-progress for me. My only regret is not reading this book and taking the related course at the beginning of my college education instead of at the end to meet required degree requirements. I highly recommend this for the beginning student (and anyone) no matter what the chosen field. In my opinion this subject/book enriches as well as teaches.

    This was only available as a rental for the eBook version from B&N. I have not been able to successfully use the buy option offered at the end of the rental period. I would definitely enjoy owner ship of this title. ISBN-13: 978-1-4292-4367-4
