Hi, Rod. I used Gleitman's Psychology 4th Edition in the Fall for my
senior-level Advanced General Psych class, which focuses on experimental,
physio, animal psych, and I'll be using the 5th Edition this fall. I liked it
and I didn't hear the students complaining. I chose it over Sternberg's text
and Gray's text for reasons that I don't recall at the moment. The instructor
materials may have had something to do with it.
I wouldn't use it for an intro level course, though, at least not at this
college with these students. It's a fairly high level difficult text. I use
Myers' Exploring Psychology for the first-year students.
