This was great for my studies

I got it 2 weeks before an exam in Introduction to Psychology, and many of the things mentioned in the book were on the exam. It really helped me. Though I would recomment that one listens to it carefully, because it is a lot of information, and I had to listen to some chapters several times to memorize everything. The female voice was very pleasant too.

Excellent intro guide

I have no background in psychology. The highest level of scientific study I've done was Grade 12 Chemistry, Biology and Maths B, and that was almost ten years ago.

Nevertheless I found this incredibly easy to understand. It was extremely interesting, and the narrator was very engaging.

I have some issues with production, often they would repeat 30 seconds or a minute of narration.

I understand the complaint someone made about this being superficial, but is only meant to be an introductory guide, and I think it sets out to do that very well. It has in fact whet my appetite for more, and I intend to do some more detailed study into some areas raised by the book.
