Summary

Filled with comprehensive, balanced coverage of classic and contemporary research, relevant examples, and engaging applications, Psychology Applied to Modern Life shows you how psychology helps you understand yourself and the world--and uses psychological principles to illuminate the variety of opportunities you have in your life and your future career.

While professors cite this bestselling book for its academic credibility and the authors' ability to stay current with 'hot topics,' students say it's one text they just don't want to stop reading. The book and associated workbook are highly readable, engaging, and visually appealing, providing you with a wealth of material you can put to use every day.

This is a great reference for anyone working in any field especially in mental health or education, but anyone could benefit from it. The headings and subheadings are organized well. Also helpful are the end of the chapter summaries and multiple choice quizzes.
