The strength of this brief text is in its versatility. It can be used as a brief text for the History of Psychology course, either on its own or as a supplement to a full-size text (such as Schultz and Schultz A History of Modern Psychology 7/e). It can also be used in combination with a history of psychology reader (such as Huber's Psychology's Cornerstones 1/e), for those instructors who prefer to teach from primary sources. Finally, with a length of about 200 pages and a net price of 18.00, it can be used as a supplemental text for a variety of courses (e.g., Theories of Personality) in which the instructor wishes to provide a historical context for the subject matter.
This is an updated version of a succinct text that has been popular for the last 3 decades, written by the son of famous Gestalt psychologist Max Wertheimer. The most important aspect of this revision is the addition of an analytical overview of the past 50 years in psychology.
