Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(12), 1024. The present author whole-heartedly endorses D. N. Robinson's comments (see record 2006-06397-076) regarding CP's annual nonreviews of general psychology textbooks. He states that it was necessary for him to “review” about 27 new introductory textbooks last year without the benefit of any professional input. The annual CP exercise is always less than useful since the reviewers rarely involve themselves with the meat of these books, focusing instead on graphics, reading ease, etc. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
