Reviews

Excellent. A comprehensive summary, drawing on a wide range of literature. Her style is clear and enjoyable, her analysis critical and sharp. The student new to this area (whether in their first or final year) will certainly come away informed. - Suzanne Zeedyk, University of Dundee

Very clear and interesting... Easy to understand, especially for those students with no background in Psychology. The material and examples appeal to the everyday experience of most students. - Barbara Deguzis, research student, Bolton Institute
