Overview

For courses in Introductory Psychology

An overview of psychology that emphasizes critical thinking, gender, and culture
Revel™ Psychology is designed to help students learn to think like psychologists, and to understand why scientific and critical thinking is so important to the decisions they make in their own lives. Updating the vision of longtime authors Carole Wade and Carol Tavris, new co-authors Samuel Sommers and Lisa Shin breathe new life into the text through modern pop culture references and coverage of real-world events. Throughout the 13th Edition, Sommers and Shin make the hallmarks of the text — critical thinking, integrated coverage of gender and culture — more appealing to a modern student audience.

Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
