Introducing Psychology Book Summary

This is the textbook only without Launchpad. With an author team equally at home in the classroom, in the lab, or on the bestseller list, this book is written to keep students turning the pages. It offers expert coverage of psychology’s scientific foundations, but communicates with students in a style that’s anything but that of a typical textbook. Introducing Psychology keeps the level of engagement high, with quirky and unforgettable examples, and reminders throughout that the critical thinking skills required to study psychology will serve students well throughout their lives. The fourth edition has been completely retooled for the classroom. For the first time, each chapter section begins with Learning Outcomes to guide students’ learning. These outcomes represent the big picture, so readers come away with more than a collection of facts. The new edition also includes the new 'A World of Difference' feature, which highlights interesting and important research on individual differences such as sex, gender, culture and ethnicity in understanding the breadth of psychology. Introducing Psychology can also be purchased with the breakthrough online resource, LaunchPad, which offers innovative media content, curated and organised for easy assignability. LaunchPad's intuitive interface presents quizzing, flashcards, animations and much more to make learning actively engaging.
