Summary

A great read is just the beginning...
Instructor and student evaluations from coast to coast attest to the Dans' captivating writing.  These award-winning bestselling authors know how to enthrall students with the subject they love best--psychology.  But in the new edition of Introducing Psychology, they go even further to ensure that students won't commit one of the seven sins of memory--forgetting what they just read.  Special Cue Questions and Critical Thinking questions give students the opportunity to process psychological concepts and aid their understanding and memory.  And if you've ever heard someone parrot a widespread misconception, you'll welcome the new Changing Minds questions, short scenarios which ask students to confront common misunderstandings of psychological phenomena.  Now the book that students love to read is as unforgettable as ever!
