Psychology in Action / Edition 10

In the 10th edition of Psychology in Action, Author Karen Huffman redefines and refocuses her message of "active learning". This is reflected as "Student Engagement through Active Participation". All in-text pedagogy (including the new MythBuster box) are subsumed under this big category making it easier for reps to concretely demonstrate this theme.

All reviews on this book are useless. They are supposed to reflect the quality of writing. People are useless here from what I've read, the book is very well written and easy to understand.

I know this isn't in relation to the book, but I'd like to start by saying that the shipping was really fast. The book arrived in almost perfect condition, however, there was a bit of a large scratch on the front of the cover, but I don't mind all the much. As far as the book goes, I am really liking this textbook. It's really easy to follow and comprehend and so far, I have an A in this class thanks to how well the contents are organized. When taking an open book test, it's really easy to find keywords because of how the book is formatted, so I hope others are as lucky to get a use a textbook this awesome. (:
