Summary

With their extensive teaching and writing experiences, Don and Sandra Hockenbury know how to speak directly to the needs and curiosities of students who are new to psychology.

Assuming no prior exposure to the subject, the Hockenburys' narrative consistently builds from the concrete to the abstract, using easy-to-grasp analogies as the foundation for introducing new ideas. The story of psychology comes alive in clear, memorable language that makes the material supremely accessible without shortchanging the subtleties of the science. Throughout, the authors anticipate questions, incorporate recognizable examples (including stories from their own lives), and pay special attention to topics of particular relevance in today's classroom. Intriguing special features, carefully conceived pedagogy, and an engaging design work seamlessly with the narrative to further enhance the communicating power of the text.
