Review:

An engaging and comfortable read ... I am particularly impressed with the pedagogy included in this textbook ... I would certainly consider adopting a structure to mirror this text.' - Fay Short, Bangor University, UK

'Very up-to-date ... I think it is important for social psychology students to understand the usefulness of the material that they are learning and also the criticisms that have been made of the discipline ... I would still definitely choose this book as a text.' - Jenny Boldero, University of Melbourne, Australia

'I'd describe the approach adopted as really excellent; refreshingly and distinctively engaging. Students will love it and the 'Try it yourself' and other features are great for teaching. Based on the work I have reviewed it is the best social psychology textbook I have seen recently...I think students would likely prefer it to Hogg and Vaughan.' - Victoria Scaife, University of East Anglia, UK
