Covers tons of learning theory and summarizes countless experiments in learning .

Covers tons of learning theory and summarizes countless experiments in learning psychology over the last two hundred years. Plenty of applications to real-life situations that can improve us and our interactions with others. Cons: Occasionally lacks scientific soundness. Overall: Excellent, excellent book. Just be on the lookout for maybe the 10% of the evidence that is not derived well enough.

Xviii, 505 pages : 25 cm. LEARNING AND BEHAVIOR looks at learning as an evolutionary mechanism. Chance's book is stimulating, interactive, and peppered with high-interest queries and examples. Chance provides the depth of conceptual knowledge usually associated with books twice as dense and infinitely less interesting. Includes bibliographical references (pages 459-489) and indexes

This text shows students how the psychology of learning can offer insight into their own behaviour. The book has been extensively revised and updated with new examples, pedagogical features, definitions, and more.

Chance's book is stimulating, interactive, and filled with high-interest queries and examples. The reconceived built-in workbook, which is included at the back of every text, has been pared down to be more approachable and less time-consuming for students, with a greater focus on the core concepts and vocabulary presented in the text.

I love the subject. This book covers a lot on operant and classical conditioning, as well as schedules of reinforcement, generalization and discrimination, and so on. I wish the book had been even longer. It doesn't cover visual analysis, but this wasn't for an ABA class (at least not for me). My class used the newer version (2013) but also allowed for this version. The newer book was around $200, so I went with this one.. It was a tiny bit different and the chapters were in the same order as the newer one but off by one. For instance, chapter 5 in this book was actually chapter 4 in the newer book. But I got an A in the class and had no problems at all with this book. If you're interested in ABA or behavioral psych, buy this book. Don't rent it. It's a great read and reread.

Pros: amazing knowledge. Covers tons of learning theory and summarizes countless experiments in learning psychology over the last two hundred years. Plenty of applications to real-life situations that can improve us and our interactions with others.

Cons: Occasionally lacks scientific soundness. Some of the conclusions derived are from samples that are far too small (case studies, anecdotal evidence from multiple people, samples of only 4-5 people for example), and should not be a base for further conjecture. Others are poor comparisons, e.g. one study in 1974 of 10 students showed x, but a 1978 study of 12 students showed little or no x. The author therefore says "evidence is mixed". In reality, the author should be looking at a far greater accumulation of evidence and have a more sound understanding of statistics.

Overall: Excellent, excellent book. Just be on the lookout for maybe the 10% of the evidence that is not derived well enough.

Used are just as good as new

Well written book with little to no BS

This book is essentially a book detailing behaviorism and applications of it. I would suggest it for any one:

-Raising children
-Training animals
-Working in mental health
-Going to college for psychology
-And much more

Behaviorism is incredibly important as well as valid and this book explains it succinctly.

Great text. Learned a lot. A few parts were a little wordy and confusing but overall very happy with it.

I rented this book and already I'm embarrassed to show up the first day with this in my hand...
Just because it's a rental doesn't mean I drop all my standards of quality. Entire corner eaten away!!!
Unacceptable for months of usage coming it's way!

I bought this book for my Learning and Cognition Psychology class and I actually really enjoy reading it. He adds a sarcastic sense of humor which helps me actually pay attention and not fall asleep!
It's hard to read and not wander off mentally. This book has good info but the lack of things that you retain what you have read makes it a great candidate to take as an alternative to a sleeping pill
