I've casually listened to these lectures very very randomly for several years now. I often quite enjoy them. I think Jeremy Wolfe's lecture style manages to present very well through audio and I'm very thankful to MIT & Prof. Wolfe for posting this content! :)

I’ve grown a new interest recently, in psychology actually. and throughout this amazing course I found out that I wasn’t wrong. I, as a genius!, usually prefer more challenging subjects and now, thanks to brilliant proffesor Wolfe, I know that psychology is a science in its youth and there’s too...Read full review »

I love prof wolfe's introduction as much as if not more than prof bloom's. Please fix lectures 9 and 10 please. It's a shame :(

Anything I say will do no justice to this course. You have to listen for yourself. This guy is a joy to listen; he makes everything so understandable and interesting. He is also very funny (he could have been a great actor since he has such incredible speech abilities). He is now working at...Read full review »

I hear great things and I can’t wait to make use of this, but it’s missing a lecture...

But, what's wrong with lecture 9, and where is lecture 10?

Jeremy Wolfe is as a brilliant of a comedian as he is a lecturer. With an often hilarious joke, Wolfe guarantees that the already fascinating knowledge is packed for safe keeping and fast retrieval in the confines of ones memory. It pains me that MIT seems to have taken the course down from its...Read full review »

Very informative and well depicted.

L'approccio alla psicologia del prof. Wolfe è degno di un docente dell'MIT. Non aspettatevi delle lezioni classiche, ma modernissime esplorazioni delle scienze cognitive. Lo stile e l'umorismo del professore rendono il tutto leggero e divertente. Addicting.

Fast forward thru the logistics parts, and learn to ignore the less-than-stellar audio, and this class is a great survey/intro to psychology. I loved the class when I took it from this professor as an undergrad, and appreciate it even more now with 20 more years of life experience. Prof. Wolfe...Read full review »

Ok
The topic would be interesting, but the instructor stumbles around and the beginning of the lectures is about 20 minutes of him passing out papers.
Red Mandaa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/13
The lecturer is soooo good ! U learn a lot by havin fun
Eeellleennaa via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 02/27/13
Good topics esp in beginning and end lectures.
RedParrotFish via Apple Podcasts · India · 01/29/13
Great basic coverage. Too bad the handouts / slides are not available.
HILDE SACKX via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 08/30/12
The best lecture I've found in iTunes U. Metaphors are just amazing!
Akther_moscow via Apple Podcasts · Russia · 07/14/12
The best course ever . Everyone should listen to it . Professor Jeremy Wolfe is incredible .
Clarisa13 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/08/12
A fantastic course that's easy to understand and great fun to listen to. To be honest I didn't notice that the sound quality was bad until I read the reviews and even now I still wouldn't call it bad, it may not be the best but I feel it does now hinder these superb lectures at all.

Fifth star is missing due to somewhat noisy sound recording
airwalk-td via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 03/07/12
A hilarious, engaging, enlightening professor and an overall amazing course, makes me want to pursue the topics!
Rectangle_chin via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/03/12
The poor audio quality seriously distracts from the content of the lecture.
bascal133 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/12
Professor Jeremy Wolfe's lessons are passionate and interesting. Even though I'm just an education student interested in general psychology, I find it easy to follow.
Sihua Liang via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/01/12
I loved this class and am now a total Jeremy Wolfe groupie! He makes a very complicated subject interesting and engaging. It is well worth your time.
Timmy5680 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/12
Speaker is very dynamic and interesting , inspiring, looking into different aspects of psychology and metal diseases, serve as a very food introduction but yet with sufficient information for you to explore. Thank you very much, I have learned a lot!!
Qc2011av via Apple Podcasts · Hong Kong · 01/30/12
This series was absolutly extraordinary. It was very comical and very easy to listen too. The examples by far are the highlight of this series, they helped explain psych fairly thorough.
Jjups via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/12
Lectures 9 and 10 will not download, is anyone else having this problem???
Nessa7887 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/12
I downloaded this out of curiosity, and it turned out to be not only a fascinating subject, but by a great professor. Not only is he knowledgeable, he's funny and captures your attention. I wish there were more !
Ekimt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/03/11
I listen to many lectures twice!
Xirtap via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/01/11
This is certainly a 5 star course, but I think it is a bit advanced compared to some other intro to psych courses. Before listening to this one, you should first listen to ... "Great Ideas in Psychology - by Todd Daniel", which is flawlessly done, super easy and very narrative.
qwertyuiopasdfgh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/11
This is a fantastic course! Helped me a lot during my psych classes. However, the quality of the recording is very bad... That prevents the listener from being completely satisfied :) Also, the lecture where prof. Wolfe demonstrates examples of different optical illusions is hard to comprehend in...Read full review »

I really enjoyed listening to this course. I took my undergraduate Intro to Psych class in '95, and these lectures brought me up to speed with new developments in Pscyh. Professor Wolfe is an engaging, entertaining lecturer whose use of stories and examples adds depth to the material. He is funny...Read full review »

Very good and clear introduction to psychology. The speaker is amazingly interesting and has a great sense of humour. It really makes for compelling listening as you find yourself wanting to know more and reading about the topics covered. Truly excellent!
The Fake Frog via Apple Podcasts · Hong Kong · 07/09/11
Cool intro to psych. I study in Germany and this helped me a lot. Prof. Wolfe is just great, funny and really comfortable to listen. Wish there was more!

Wow
An amazing charismatic speaker didn't know whether I was listening to a comedy show or a psychology class!
Griffensixtytwo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/27/11
I really love psychology!! :)
SasinT via Apple Podcasts · South Korea · 05/24/11
This is a very interesting and engaging course about the basics of the psychology. Obviously, prof. Wolfe has a carisma that makes the whole class very enjoyable and entertaining, even if some people may say that the psych science is too dry. If you need to learn more about our human thinking and...Read full review »
Max Saint via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/12/11
Like someone mentioned, not being able to see Prof. Wolfe took away from the experience, but everything was very clearly explained. Very funny man, I'm not going to be able to forget anything abt lecture 1, thanks to Mark and Lara! Note: the first 14 minutes of first lecture are just the usual...Read full review »

Pros: .The teacher explains the subject clearly, and is hilarious. I laughed out loud on multiple occasions. Cons: .The recording could have been better, and some material is weakened due to the lack of Mr. Wolfe's visual aids. .Lecture 10 is missing
Eli Tanenbaum via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/20/11
Jeremy Wolfe is a fantastic lecturer. The recording quality could be better, but the content is very easy to follow and entertaining. I highly recommend it.
Sachio Cook via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/11
My love story with psychology started from this podcast. I laughed like a drain and I learned more than I have learned from many a college course, and I am including real sitting down ones. Jeremy Wolfe is a favourite of MIT students and you can see why - he's clear, interesting, memorable, and...Read full review »

Ok, the sound quality is not great. I won't deny that, but I am still really enjoying this series. Jeremy Wolfe is a really engaging speaker and it's not hard to stay interested. It's a little annoying not being able to see the visual demos he is showing the students, but I'm still able to...Read full review »
CharlH via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/17/10
I've thoroughly enjoyed listening to these lectures. Professor Wolfe is surprisingly easy to understand and is wonderfully entertaining while covering what I think are fascinating topics. In a few instances (especially lecture 6 I believe) he makes references to diagrams that of course can't be...Read full review »

I would've thought that such a prestigious institute would be more than capable of achieving much better sound quality than this. It really is poor quality. Alas.. I'm sure the content is good but far too raspy for me.
mynci2010 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/23/10
I'm a junior in highschool and looking foward to taking psychology at csun and hopefully transfer to ucla:) Just finished lecture one, going to listen the second one tomorrow:)
