The science makes it the book for you.
An introduction to psychology doesn't have to be science-challenged to be student-friendly. After all, what more powerful tool is there for captivating students than the real science behind what we know? Dan Schacter, Dan Gilbert and Dan Wegner's skillful presentation centers on a smart selection of pioneering and cutting-edge experiments and examples. They effectively convey the remarkable achievements of psychology (with the right amount of critical judgment) to introduce the field's fundamental ideas to students.
The writing makes it the book for your students.
But it is not just the science that sets "Psychology" apart--its the way Schacter, Gilbert, and Wegner write about it. Each is a world-renowned researcher and accomplished classroom teacher. Each has written popular books that get to the heart of what fascinates people about psychology. Read any chapter of "Psychology"--any page--and you'll see why. Bracing, easy to read, rich with captivating examples that make the ideas clear, concrete and relevant, "Psychology "communicates in a way that elevates and inspires students. It is anything but just another textbook.
