To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this book to review ethics for the profession of psychology in Canada as a means to obtaining some continuing Ed credits. The contact looks useful and I like the use of case studies. However, the print in the book is so small and light that it is difficult to read. It is also difficult to understand why anyone would choose to use such small print and such light print. I can read a newspaper easily, but I can’t read this!
Worked for what I needed it for. I used it for a kinesiology ethics class I took online during covid, and our bookstore was closed. Gave me the info I needed and well-organized. I liked the highlighting and search feature that kindle offers on my macbook
As a doctoral student practicing in psychology, I bought this book for pragmatic purposes - to ensure I knew the answers to specific questions that seemed to not be so clear in talking to others in the field. Dr. Truscott's book dispels some common myths within the field, and clarifies fuzziness around important ethical issues. It`s written in a very accessible manner that gets right to the point. It contains many practical vignettes and a helpful index in the back. This book would be great for people in the beginning of their careers, or for those who are seasoned. Having had Dr. Truscott as one of my doctoral level professors, I know first hand that he is passionate about researching, studying and teaching others about ethical practices. I would highly recommend this book for any ethics course, or just to brush up on best ethical practices. Out of the hundreds of psychology books you might already have on your shelf, this is one you won`t be giving away or recycling. It`s a great reference book that deserves to keep its spot on your shelf. Highly recommended!
