This is an excellent text and covers a wide range of recent evolutionary psychology topics.
This text covers a wide range of evolutionary psychology issues in a clear and logical order, yet you can still dip in and out of the chapters. I particularly like the end of chapter review questions and glossary pointers, which will enable students to consolidate their learning. On a practical note, the size of the book (approximately 26x18cm) makes it easier to carry about despite its hardback cover. A very real consideration for any student or teacher!
The supplemental materials made the difference when deciding between this text and another.
No longer teaching on Intro 2
A solid text but it was not the
first-choice for clarity, illustrations
and access to current research.
An excellent text, informative and user friendly.
In my opinion there are other alternatives that are better suited for our purposes.
Probably the best book on evolutionary psychology that I have read, the chapters are clear and concise, so shall be happy to recommend to students
Great introductory book for evolutionary psychology course. Up to date and easy to read. Includes many ilustrations, charts and diagrams. On the website additional interesting and useful materials (both for teachers and students) are avialable. It is really worth considering as one of a main textbook for evolutionary psychology teaching.
This is really comprehensive text on the subject of evolutionary psychology. It is authored with unwavering authority and the learner whether they are newcomer or seasoned psychology student should find the text invaluable in their studies at all levels.
