  1. Suverän bok
    Anonym, 20 september 2016

    Det är en suveränt bra och intressant bok som tar upp psykologiämnet och dess historia. Den har ett bra kapitelupplägg som har sammanfattande återblickar och kapitelfrågor. Dock hade jag önskat ett hårt bokomslag för att underlätta läsning/hantering av den 2 kg tunga boken. Boken kan rekommenderas till alla psykologistuderande då den är oerhört omfattande.

  2. Tung
    Jenny Svensson, 28 oktober 2015

    Mycket bra innehåll men tyvärr är bokens form och vikt brutal vilket har resulterat i nackspärr samt utbrott över att det inte går att forsla den utan en gaffeltruck eller läsa den utan att en bodybuilder håller i den åt mig. Därför ska det bli ett sannt nöje att köra sida för sida i pappersstrimlaren när jag är klar med den!

  3. Superbra
    Anonym, 4 september 2015

    En rejäl bok med mycket intressant innehåll. Känns som att allt man vill veta står i denna bok! Prisvärd, enda minuset är att den är så stor att det blir jobbigt att bära med sig den så av praktiska skäl skulle man behöva både en fysisk och digital upplaga.
