Summary

Appropriate for the introductory psychology course, Psychology emphasizes both the scientific research and the applications to daily life. The third edition is a major revision, offering in-depth research as well as solid organization, memorable examples, and useful pedagogy and sensitive coverage of ethnicity, gender, and diversity issues

Chapter 1 now contains a thorough exploration of the principles of critical thinking; the remaining chapters each contain six thought-provoking critical thinking exercises.

The research and examples have been thoroughly updated throughout the book, including over 1700 new references primarily from the late 1990s.

Each chapter now begins with a vignette describing an individual whose experience clarifies the theoretical and research-based issues of the chapter.

New artwork-tables, graphs, photos, and a colorful open design-contributes to the integrity of the text's presentation.

Reorganization of this edition-19 chapters slimmed to 18-makes the text manageable for a single-term course.
