Because application is key, the book concludes with eight mini-chapters on topics including behavioral economics, environmental sustainability, law and the courtroom, positive psychology, and more.

Review:

"Good science should tell a story. Heinzen and Goodfriend focus on social psychology as an ever evolving scientific field, emphasizing what questions we’ve asked and what we’ve learned as scientists strive to uncover the causes of and factors influencing human social behavior." 
-- Jay L Michaels

"Provides a unique, modern approach to social psychology. In addition to the fundamentals, the Heinzen & Goodfriend text covers other, relevant to today, topics." 
-- Darin Challacombe

"This textbook takes a contemporary and conversational approach to social psychology while being able to satisfy a need in the market for social psychology textbooks.  This includes greater emphasis on conversational discussions, practical application to the real world, emphasis on research methods, and popular culture references"
-- Amanda ElBassiouny

"Takes a modern, interactive approach to teaching Social Psychology. Packed with pop culture references and case studies, students are able to relate concepts to familiar and understandable preexisting structures. However, the emphasis on research methods keeps them thinking critically and cultivates their scientific literacy." 
-- Miranda E. Bobrowski

"Successfully interweaves theory and relevant applications regarding Social Psychology, with an emphasis on reflections/applications for the student." 
-- Jeannine Stamatakis-Amess

"I feel [Social Psychology] is better than most [textbooks], because of the numerous examples given and how it also relates to current society. I also enjoyed the questions in between readings and how you can apply [concepts] to you own life." -- Student Skye Mckelvy

"[Social Psychology] gives me concrete examples of real life situations. The flow of the text is very comprehendible, and everything builds upon one another. It is an easy read, compared to a past Social Psychology textbook I read a year ago. It kept me engaged for the most part while reading, [without] normal, everyday distractions getting in the way." 
-- Student Devon Dix
