Summary

This best-selling text not only explores psychological theory and research, but also emphasizes their application to the lives of students. Spencer Rathus is a talented author with a widely celebrated writing style that makes psychology interesting, appealing, and relevant for students. A great amount of detail has gone into updating this text, including: the additions of a new chapter, "Adolescent and Adult Development;" a new feature, "Controversy in Psychology," which embraces controversies in psychology as vehicles for enhancing knowledge and stimulating critical thinking; and a new pedagogical approach, PQ4R (outlined below). This new edition also features greater emphasis on the evolutionary perspective, as well as a new connection to the Web and the text's CD-ROM using the author's trademarked method.
