Review:
Designed for non-majors and majors alike, this lively, highly interactive introduction to psychology provides a broad exploration of classic and contemporary research on current and emerging topics in all areas of the field and provides an abundance of opportunities for students to see first hand how psychological concepts apply to a wide range of real-life, everyday situations. It offers strong treatment of the "how's" and "why's" of research methods, with frequent examination throughout the book of the validity of conclusions drawn from research. Also discusses important topics within historical context -- e.g., the discovery and function of neurons, the development of phobias, and the concept of stress. An exceptionally strong supplements package including several interactive, multimedia resources ensures student's total immersion in the material.

From the Publisher

Review:
Between them, authors Davis and Palladino have spent over 50 years teaching the introductory psychology course, and they are committed to offering a book whose design, writing, price, and content meets the needs of learners at all levels. Using a conversational writing style, this engaging book offers a broad exploration of classic and contemporary research on current and emerging topics in the field, and encourages readers to recognize, first hand, how psychological concepts have meaning in their own daily lives. Investigating the “hows” and “whys” of research methods presented, this book offers frequent examination of the validity of conclusions drawn. Chapter topics cover sensation and perception, states of consciousness, basic principles of learning, motivation and emotion, memory, thinking and intelligence, lifespan developmental psychology, sex and gender, personality, psychological disorders, therapy, health psychology, social psychology, and applied psychology. For individuals seeking an introduction to the psychology field.
