Summary

See the big picture of introductory psychology rather than try to memorize a collection of fragmented ideas with WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGY? In each chapter, "The Big Picture" is a real-life story of a person whose experience illustrates the concepts of the chapter. If you've ever wondered, "Why should psychology matter to me?", you'll appreciate the way the authors answer that question using practical everyday examples from their research and work in classrooms.
