Great book for beginners!

Purchased it on 14th November, 2010, during my initial days of preparation for civil services exam. The book covers every topic systematically (emphasizing on diags.) which really helps a beginner inculcate knowledge in an efficient manner. This book and other one (Social Psychology) are must-haves for students interested in psychology.

Good book for upsc

Its my second copy for the book, and its the best, most crisp book available for upsc prep...covers 60 percent of syllabus and is lucid and full of information. Not good for beginners as might be a bit boring for them.... Case studies are abundant in this book which help u substantiate your answer.

THE BEST FOR THOSE WHO REALLY REALLY THINK PSYCHOLOGY AS A PASSION FOR THEM!!!!

First for the topics are explained in such a way that you had them already in your life before.
1. The writer of this book Robert A. Barron explains in such a way that you will really find that he hadn't written them but instead he is talking with you
2. As the matter of this book is concerned is also well aranged and well well explained.
If you relly think that you wanna read something about human psychology then i would recommend this book with no objection!!!
