"This text provides an excellent starting point for the novice psychology scholar and allows instructors plenty of room to expand and personalize the course to fit their particular students’ needs."
Allyson Graf, Elmira College

"I have reviewed a number of textbooks published for introductory classes in Psychology (I have chaired a committee several times to review our department choice). I keep coming back to Myers for his readability grounded in solid research."
Jane Whitaker, University of the Cumberlands

"This is a very successful text. Kudos to Myers and the publishing team."
Christopher Hayashi, Southwestern College

"Your text works because my students actually buy it and read it. The students integrate relevant text details into their essays and their in-class comments provide evidence that they read and comprehend what is communicated in the text. Since I teach at a community college it is important to have an affordable text that is easy to comprehend. Additionally, your text works for my students because your style of presentation very much reflects how I teach; this consistency really helps so much…. My students find your text to be very user-friendly. Also, the diversity aspect inclusions are very much appreciated by my students who are very diverse. Since many students do not have English as their first language (LA community college district) your text makes sense to them. It challenges without overwhelming them…. Keep up the great collaboration!"
Ann Hennessey, Los Angeles Pierce College

"You feel you are listening to a story when reading the text. You feel he is speaking to you and only you. I think students identify with that. There is also some humor interjected in the writing. The examples are rich and easily understood; always relevant and appropriate."
Shawn Ward, Le Moyne College

"After the countless PSY texts and chapters, such as this one, I have reviewed, this one actually held my interest. The peppering of unique examples sets the text apart."
Burton Beck, Pensacola State College

"I was impressed with the writing style, finding it frequently engaging. The concepts were accurate and adequately rigorous, yet written clearly and simply enough to be easily understood by student readers."
Edie Sample, Metropolitan Community College

"I like best the writing style. I think that it’s accessible for my students who are struggling to understand many of their textbooks. Contrary to popular belief it is not always better to write using a lot of jargon and a highly academic tone. This book is well-written, just as scholarly and contains the appropriate references and descriptions of important research studies to make it a strong book while at the same time, they can actually understand what it’s saying."
Sue O’Donnell, George Fox University
