After earning a doctorate in psychology from the University of Arizona, Dennis Coon taught for 22 years at Santa Barbara City College in California. Throughout his career, Dr. Coon has especially enjoyed the challenge of teaching introductory psychology. He and his wife Sevren recently returned to Tucson where Dr. Coon continues to teach, write, edit and consult. Dennis is the author of Introduction to Psychology as well as Essentials of Psychology. Together, these texts have been used by nearly 2 million students. Dr. Coon frequently serves as a reviewer and consultant to publishers and he edited the best-selling trade book, Choices. he also helped design modules for PsychNow!, Brooks/Cole's interactive CD-ROM. In his leisure hours, Dr. Coon enjoys hiking, photography, painting, woodworking and music. He also designs, builds, and plays classical guitars. He has published articles on guitar design and occasionally offers lectures on this topic in addition to his more frequent presentations on psychology. His recent return to Arizona has made it possible for him to fulfill a lifelong dream of using operant conditioning to teach scorpions to tap dance.
