"The author has accomplished his goal of promoting students' interest in human behavior through his personable writing style. I did not choose Coon's text because of his personal writing approach, although it was an added bonus. I chose his text mainly because after defining the topic, he asks question related to the topic that students may have and provides a direct answer to each question. I find that students ask questions that are similar to Coon's questions and therefore, can redirect them to reread that particular section in the text...The journal entries allow students to relate to the situation occurring in their own life which then prompts them to want to know more about the topic...The author manages to incorporate the example from the journal entry into the chapter as he discusses various related topics, thereby continuing to hold students' interests in the topic and connecting psychological concepts to daily activities."
"This text is an excellent introductory psychology text that provides a wide array of psychology topics and application to real-world experience. It is easily relatable and informative to students and creates a basis for many riveting and dynamic class discussions."
