Psychology, 12th edition

  • Carole Wade
  • Carol Tavris


An overview of psychology that emphasizes critical thinking, gender, and culture
REVEL™ for 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. In keeping with their hallmark approach, authors Carole Wade and Carol Tavris, along with new contributor Alan Swinkels, continue to emphasize critical thinking and to integrate coverage of gender and culture throughout the main narrative. REVEL for the Twelfth Edition offers revised learning objectives that better guide students through the text as well as updated research references that reflect progress in the field and cutting-edge discoveries.

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.
