In this Eighth Edition of his best-selling briefer text, Dennis Coon presents psychology in a way students find fascinating, relevant, and above all, accessible-in a book that is now streamlined and approximately 130 pages shorter. Built into every chapter are a number of features that help students grasp major concepts, develop a broad understanding of psychology's diversity, and see for themselves how psychology relates to the practical problems of everyday life. In this revision, Dennis Coon provides students with a book that they can experience - not just read. Every pedagogical feature, every boxed highlight, every piece of art is included with the goal of getting students actively engaged and involved with the material. In this Eighth Edition, Coon goes beyond the SQ3R method to include a new "Knowledge Builder" feature that adds a "fourth R" (relate) to the proven study-reading formula of survey, question, read, recite, review, and relate.

Mitterer, of INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY: GATEWAYS TO MIND AND BEHAVIOR, 13th Edition and PSYCHOLOGY: A JOURNEY, 5th Edition.Review:
"The invisible person that asks the students questions on each page of the text and gets students actively involved by encouraging them to read to get the answers is a refreshing and unique feature of Dennis Coon's text. Dr. Coon does a far better job in this area than any other intro author."
