Great Addition to the Personal Library
I love this. I've had some interest in Psychology in general, so when I needed this book for my Social Psych. class, this was well-informed of all the issues and concepts that are presented in analysing society as individuals and groups. It has opened my eyes to see people in a different outlook when people are rude, inconsiderate, or when people come as "weird."
Besides those particular points, it also helps in understanding your own personal actions. You can receive a lot from this book that can benefit yourself and others for the good of your social environment. Highly recommend this.

Best Textbook I've Ever Used
By Courtney J. Ross
Hands down, this is my favorite textbook! It did an amazing job of presenting the material. Reading the book didn't feel like school work at all.
Each chapter started with an interesting story, some of which I had heard on the news before. Then, the chapter explained the concept at hand, and concluded by explaining how the concept applied to the story. The text was very easy to understand and very interesting, with many examples. The book was filled with graphs and diagrams that enhanced the text. I can't express how much I enjoyed this text.
I thoroughly recommend taking a Social Psychology class if you can, and definitely use this text book!!

Social Psychology Starters
By Blake R. Stalder
I'm an engineer by trade and thus have not had much experience with studies in this area. This book provided real life breakdowns of scenarios within social psychology that makes it understandable to me (who has no previous background). I enjoyed many of the topics discussed and have even been able to apply a lot of the cases stated in the book to my real life situations. I consider this book beneficial for everyone who is involved in some type of social setting, whether work or personally related.
