In this revision, Karen Huffman has built on what this text does well: pedagogy, guiding the student, facilitating the art & science of teaching & learning, technology, active learning, gender and culture. In addition, this revision focuses on updating the neuroscience and biology (ie the science) since these are the areas that are most rapidly changing the face of psychology.

From the Publisher:

An introduction to psychology which surveys all major topics of current interest in the discipline. Highlights recent research and theories as well as classical principles. Presentation is unbiased and balanced, giving due coverage to the major trends and theoretical perspectives. The authors refer repeatedly to the five major schools of thought in psychology today: psychoanalytical, behavioristic, cognitive, humanistic, and psychobiological. Many real-life examples are used to illustrate the ideas in the text. Topics covered include sensation, perception, states of consciousness, learning, memory, thinking and intelligence, development, sexuality, motivation and emotion, personality, abnormal behavior, therapy, social interaction, and much more. Contains chapter outlines, a running glossary, and end-of-chapter annotated bibliographies.

From the Back Cover:

No other introductory psychology text does a better job evoking the "eureka effectg"--the feeling you get when the lightbulb turns on and you suddenly understand.

Users have consistently praised PSYCHOLOGY IN ACTION for its outstanding pedagogy,  accessible presentation, and balanced coverage. Take a look at what reviews are saying:

  • "I remain quite impressed by the high degree of professional accomplishment achieve by the author in this work.:—DAVID MCDONALD, University of Missouri, Columbia
  • "The author's writing style was stimulating, clear and understandable...I also appreciate the author's sense of humor, Understandable, yes, Engaging, absolutely"—MICHELLE MERVIN, University of Tennessee, Martin
  • "The three greatest strengths of this text are that the writing style is easy-going, factual, informative. The definitions are good, the text is accurate, the references are very recent. I like this text a lot."—LILLIAN RANGE, University if Southern Mississippi

Now thoroughly revised, updated, and enhanced, the new Sixth Edition of PSYCHOLOGY IN ACTION   builds upon the success of Huffman's active-learning approach, while expanding coverage in cutting-edge areas, such as neuroscience, biology, and genetics. The Sixth Edition also features an improved pedagogical design and art program, and more coverage of gender and cultural diversity.
