THINK Psychology, Canadian Edition is a concise presentation of the key theories and concepts of Psychology with current Canadian content and high-interest readings. Its attractive design featuring a cool, open, full-colour layout and exciting info-graphics will have a strong visual appeal for today’s students. It is also accessibly written, with numerous contemporary examples to explain the patterns and processes of human behaviour in a way students will understand.  Seven short readings on psychological topics selected from well-respected journals and popular press publications have been highlighted with annotations to introduce students to primary source material.

    The open access website, TheThinkSpot, provides students with a number of self-study tools–such as chapter-by-chapter quizzes, downloadable chapter-by-chapter study cards, and on-line flashcards–to help them achieve a better grade. With all of this and a value price of at least 20% less than other softcover Psychology texts, THINK Psychology is a text that students will gladly purchase and enjoy using.
