Good content, bad form

The content is very interesting but getting through it can be rather painful. This is the worst narration that I've ever stumbled upon in an audiobook which is unacceptable for a book this expensive (the most expensive in its category at the time of buying). It's read too fast with no regard for the listener learning, which is odd in a book about psychology that covers learning.

I was very disappointed when I first bought it but after listening to it multiple times, I've come to feel satisfied with the content, hence the 3 stars.

Ready. Set. Go.

This is a fantastic book, well written and presents the material in an interesting way.
What a shame it is read so fast, making it almost impossible to listen too. I found the speed of reading made it very difficult to absorb any of the information presented.
Shame. Would recommend the book, but not the audio version.

Too Fast

Read too fast, you can easily lose track if you slip in concentration even for a few seconds.

Not too fast at all

The first chapter is very fast, seemingly with pauses cut out. But beginning with the second chapter its normal. The content of the book is excellent!

Great Textbook

If you could sum up Psychology, Second Edition in three words, what would they be?

Egaging, well-written, interesting

Who was your favorite character and why?

There are no characters in a textbook. Some have complained about the narrator speaking too fast in chapter one; with an Olympus recorder, it can be played at slow speed.<br/><br/>The description describes this book as being an hour long; that's garbage! The time needs to be changed to what is real.

too fast!

The book seems to be excelent. But the audio is awfull!! I read the reviews of the audio but since I had no option I bought it anyway. This is the worst audio book I have ever listened!! The reader reads too fast and goes from one section of the book to another without even a second pause. Wich makes confusing and difficult. The student must really pay double attention to dont get lost for a few seconds.

Excellent content, presentation excellent

I don't share the opinions of the listeners, who found that the actor is reading too fast. After reading their comments I decided to listen to the audiobook in double speed (iPhone), so I could go back to regular speed, if necessary, and I never had to do that. I enjoyed the whole audio book, it's concise, lively written, and well read.
