THINK Psychology, Canadian Edition is a concise presentation of the key theories and concepts of Psychology with current Canadian content and high-interest readings. Its attractive design featuring a cool, open, full-colour layout and exciting info-graphics will have a strong visual appeal for today’s students. It is also accessibly written, with numerous contemporary examples to explain the patterns and processes of human behaviour in a way students will understand.  Seven short readings on psychological topics selected from well-respected journals and popular press publications have been highlighted with annotations to introduce students to primary source material.

    The open access website, TheThinkSpot, provides students with a number of self-study tools–such as chapter-by-chapter quizzes, downloadable chapter-by-chapter study cards, and on-line flashcards–to help them achieve a better grade. With all of this and a value price of at least 20% less than other softcover Psychology texts, THINK Psychology is a text that students will gladly purchase and enjoy using.

Review:

“[The text] is jazzy and upbeat with many colourful visuals, and the chapters are relatively short, which could help maintain student attention spans and their time management issues.”

“The effectiveness of [‘Think Readings’] is that everything is very clearly laid out for students to have as a model for critical thinking and analysis.”

--Mary Close, Canadore College

 

“I want a concise, interesting, and vibrant book (colourful, filled with pictures). This is what gives THINK Psychology an advantage over other books I have looked at.”

--Christina Besner, Champlain College Lennoxville

 

“The review and the questions at the end of each chapter of the Think text is better than those I have seen in other texts. Think Psychology also stands out above the rest in terms of its visual appeal and it’s use of the ‘Think Readings’....I think the Think Readings have a lot to offer especially for those more advanced students who are looking for a little extra from their textbooks.”

--Professor, Fanshawe College

 

“The ‘Think readings’ feature at the end of various chapters throughout are excellent articles which I would consider assigning to students for marks. I am always looking for ways to further engage my student population with real world situations in psychology.”

--Kristen Buscaglia, Niagara College

 

“I think these [‘Think Readings’] represent excellent examples of the kinds of thinking and elaboration that students should be doing when they read...[they] are interesting and relevant to the students’ lives, and they are not too ‘academic,’ a nice break from reading a textbook.”

--Professor, St. Clair College
