Summary

Weiten's PSYCHOLOGY: THEMES AND VARIATIONS, EIGHTH EDITION maintains this book's strengths while addressing market changes with new learning objectives, a complete updating, and a fresh new design. The book continues to provide a unique survey of psychology that meets three goals: to demonstrate the unity and diversity of psychology's subject matter, to illuminate the research process and its link to application, and to make the text challenging and thought-provoking yet easy from which to learn. Weiten accomplishes the successful balance of scientific rigor and a user-friendly approach through the integration of seven unifying themes, an unparalleled didactic art program, real-life examples, and a streamlined set of learning aids that help users see beyond research to big-picture concepts. Major topics typically covered in today's courses are included, such as evolutionary psychology, neuropsychology, biological psychology, positive psychology, applied psychology, careers, and multiculturalism and diversity.

Obviously no one likes to read textbooks.. but this one is very good. It has good information that is not confusing. The book is easy to read and understand. I liked that I could rent this textbook because I didn't have to keep it forever
