Higher Psychology Reviews


I liked the overall impression of the publication and as a tutor of psychology myself I could appreciate that there was comprehensive coverage in a down-to-earth way. I particularly like the sections on the psychoanalytic approach and the biological approach. Getting these topic areas right in balance can be tricky but Mr Keegan has done a good job here, ! I warmed to the author within the first few pages of the introduction where I was impressed with his honesty. His preface explains his love of psychology and a bit about his background which creates confidence that the man 'knows his stuff'. -- Glo Potter, Principal Community Learning Worker, K This book is eminently readable. It can be used as the central text of a course or easily dipped into for reference. Presentation, content and readability are all first class. Modern textbooks have to compete with the television and videos. This gives them a run for their money. -- Times Educational Supplement, Scotland 20030221
