Summary

This new edition of ESSENTIALS OF PSYCHOLOGY is the medium-sized text in a three-book set authored by Dennis Coon. The hallmark of all Dennis Coon's books is the pioneering use of the SQ3R (now SQ4R) learning system. SQ4R stands for Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Relate, and Review. His was the first text to embed this well respected learning system within a textbook. It is written with a student-friendly voice and is accompanied by a full complement of print and electronic ancillaries. This edition also features refinement of the pedagogy by expanding the Knowledge Builder sections of every chapter to incorporate a built in study guide for students. This text covers the basic set of topics commonly taught in the introductory course while also including a second Development chapter (Chapter 4), a separate chapter on Gender and Sexuality (Chapter 15), and a concluding chapter on significant Applications (Chapter 17).
