Social Psychology, Second Canadian Edition, continues to set the standard by which other Social Psychology texts are judged. The authors' engaging writing and unique, intimate tone make the text both compelling and readable, without being overly simplistic.
The organization logically moves the student through the study of how people think, influence, and relate, including an appropriate balance of basic research and applied material for the course. This edition includes a greater emphasis on social psychology’s applications to both work and life, and can be accompanied by the new Social Connection video series, which follows the organization of Myers/Spencer, and brings classic research to life.
