Psychologists Use the Scientific Method to Guide Their Research

This book is designed to help students organize their thinking about psychology at a conceptual level. The focus on behaviour and empiricism has produced a text that is better organized, has fewer chapters, and is somewhat shorter than many of the leading books. The beginning of each section includes learning objectives; throughout the body of each section are key terms in bold followed by their definitions in italics; key takeaways, and exercises and critical thinking activities end each section.

It’s almost an impossible task to sum up the history of psychology and yet they did an excellent work. I cannot imagine how they managed to structure it but thanks to that I was able to learn a lot of great topics and about great professionals along history.

I have an above average IQ and I've always been interested in psychology (I have studied a good bit of it.), but some of the areas in the book are difficult to follow.
I'm giving this four stars for information, but I must say the Psyche industry is out of control and Psyche people are crazy. Every psyche person I've ever met has been crazy. My Aunt is a big time neuro-psychologist and she's crazy as well.
