Social psychology studies one of civilization's most central concerns: human relationships. By understanding people's beliefs, attitudes, and desires, individuals can fashion relationships that benefit all involved, rather than one person or group at the expense of another. Written with a friendly style and engaging, accessible language, the second edition of the popular textbook Knowing People selects some of the best research in social psychology and shows how it can improve people's lives. This revised and updated edition includes clear descriptions of the latest research and adds a new chapter on leadership and emotion. Not only does Knowing People appeal to individual readers interested in improving their relationships, but it is also valuable as a supplemental text in a wide variety of social science, business, and professional courses―in all areas where successful interaction with other people is important.

About the Author:

Michael Lovaglia is professor of sociology and departmental executive officer at the University of Iowa. He founded the journal Current Research in Social Psychology, and his articles have been published in The American Journal of Sociology, American Sociological Review, and Social Psychology Quarterly. His basic research on social power, status, and emotion has been supported by grants from the National Science Foundation.

Review:

Knowing People is highly readable. The book would be appropriate for an introductory social psychology class, an introductory sociology class that emphasizes social psychology or a class for non-majors. (Teaching Sociology)

This engaging, easy to read, book will be great supplement to an introduction to social psychology or introduction to sociology course. What makes this book unique is the way Lovaglia overlays personal examples from his own life onto rich descriptions of social scientific research. The result is a text that is a highly effective in its ability to teach fundamental concepts in social psychology and also one that illustrates the usefulness of social psychology to students' everyday lives. (Shelley Correll, Cornell University)
