Summary

Introducing Psychology is distinguished by an author team equally at home in the classroom, in the lab, and on the bestsellers list, with each author an expert teacher and accomplished researcher, and with three of the authors having written popular general interest books. It's a textbook written to keep students turning the pages, introducing students to psychology’s scientific foundations with an offbeat, example-rich writing style that's anything but that of a typical textbook.


This edition of Introducing Psychology has been completely retooled for the classroom. For the first time, each chapter section begins with Learning Outcomes to help students come away from the reading with a "big picture" understanding of psychology as a living science, not just a collection of facts. This edition also includes a new feature called A World of Difference, drawing on pivotal research to show the importance of sex, gender, culture, SES, and ethnicity in understanding psychology. Also highlighted—the popular Data Visualization Activities, a unique resource for building quantitative reasoning skills.
