Excellent. Cannot recommend this text highly enough. One of the most thorough, honest and concise texts I have bought in years.This book may principally have educators in-mind, but you needn’t be a teacher (or a trainee teacher) to make thorough use of this text.It’s worth every penny.Absolutely delighted with the text: it’s a real boost to my academic pursuits and very enjoyable to read.It ought perhaps to be required reading for trainee researchers, scientists and Psychologists, as well as teachers and lecturers.

Four Stars Very good book. Nice examples. Hard-copy version is bulky and pretty uncomfortable to use. Would buy kindle version.
