Summary

For courses in Personality Psychology

An introduction to personality that combines classic and current research
Personality: Classic Theories and Modern Research puts “personality” back into the personality course, integrating the insights of classic theorists with modern research in a manner that will captivate students. Throughout the text, authors Howard Friedman and Miriam Schustack encourage students to think critically about human nature, during the course and beyond. The sixth edition includes updated data as well as examples that reveal how classic discoveries, when paired with modern research, are freshly relevant to current challenges in the real world.

NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.

Personality: Classic Theories and Modern Research, Sixth Edition is also available via REVEL™, an immersive learning experience designed for the way today's students read, think, and learn.
