Summary

Real World Psychology, a brief version of Huffman’s Psychology in Action, reflects Huffman’s core “student/active classroom” philosophy and is designed specifically for the unique needs of those who demand big things from a small package. This text ties every single concept to a real-world, in-text example by utilizing case studies, photos, graphs, news stories and charts. This brief approach allows readers to grasp the “big picture” in psychology without an abundance of supplementary details.
