Jim Kalat's best-selling INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY takes a "critical thinking" approach to the major theories and concerns of psychology. Kalat's blend of humorous writing style with fun, hands-on "Try It Yourself" activities, gives students an engaging learning experience that gets them involved with even the most intimidating concepts. This proven approach has won the text well-deserved praise from instructors and students alike. By prompting students to ask themselves questions like "How was this conclusion reached?" and "Does the evidence really support it?," Kalat encourages the use of scientific principles that psychologists utilize when attempting to answer questions about human intellect, emotion, and behavior. This approach helps students separate what merely sounds plausible from what is scientifically provable--both in the psychology classroom and beyond it. With the text's carefully crafted content and pedagogy, as well as its supporting learning tools, students are able to see the study of psychology as an endeavor that has relevance to their scholastic and personal lives. The Ninth Edition builds upon the text's reputation for incorporating timely information that draws on the latest research and literature. STUDENT DESCRIPTION: James Kalat's best-selling INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY does far more than cover major theories and studies; it encourages you to question the information and ask yourself, "How was this conclusion reached?" and "Does the evidence really support it?" In this student-praised text, Kalat challenges your preconceptions about psychology to help you become a more informed consumer of information not only during your college experience but, also as you venture into your post-college life. With his humorous writing style and hands-on "Try It Yourself" exercises, Kalat puts you at ease and gets you involved with what you are studying so that you can succeed in your course.
