More than any other introductory textbook, Don and Sandra Hockenbury's Discovering Psychology makes the story of psychology a captivating, highly personal experience for all kinds of students. Without sacrificing science, the authors draw on personal experiences and other real stories to illustrate essential concepts and important research directions in a recognizable, relatable way. This is especially true in the area of cutting-edge neuroscience, which the Hockenburys make extremely teachable and utterly absorbing without oversimplifying the presentation.
