“I personally have always found this text to be the most comprehensive on the market....I would describe this new edition as a fresh, well-organized, content-rich text. This text is an excellent resource that assists students on their journey into the fascinating field of Psychology, in a manner that is clear, informative and engaging.”
--Kristen Buscaglia, Niagara College
“The revised textbook is more streamlined, condensed and relevant to the material that is being taught in a college introduction class. The charts, reviews, concept maps, objectives, etc, are great tools that are incorporated throughout the text that add to the comprehension and tie the concepts together in a format that is appealing to all.”
--Adele Caruso, Mohawk College
“One distinct advantage that the new edition of the World of Psychology has is the Canadian content piece. Students want to know how psychology is relevant in the Canadian context and that they can also work with these subject areas. Another distinct advantage is the learning objectives for each module and proximity of the "remember it" section to the material they just read. The review and reflect section is also highly useful for the student and the instructor.”
--Dahlia Nicholson, George Brown College
“Some instructors may be more hesitant than their students to adopt a purely magazine-style text, as it may not seem scholarly or traditional enough. I think your text [Wood, World of Psychology] provides a good alternative because it incorporates many elements of a magazine-style text, while still retaining the scholarly integrity that most instructors demand.”
--Elaine Nethery, Seneca College
“[Wood is] student-focussed, organized and easy to read. This text provides thought-provoking questions while also providing the content to come up with the answers. It is visually appealing and up-to-date, with references to topics the students will relate to.”
--Heather Stewart, Durham College
