Hallmark features of this title

  • A 3-pronged approach to critical thinking has been woven seamlessly throughout the narrative.
    • First, the authors define what critical thinking is and what it is not.
    • Next, the authors model these guidelines in their evaluations of research and popular ideas.
    • Finally, students are prompted to practice what the authors have preached.
  • The text reports up-to-date findings from biology and neuroscience and integrates studies of gender and culture. Throughout, the authors emphasize an inclusive overview of psychological science and a representative depiction of human nature that resonates with students from a diversity of backgrounds.
  • Each chapter includes a Taking Psychology with You section that presents lessons for readers to apply to their own lives.
