Always on top of the latest news in psychology, always tuned in to what’s happening in the classroom, David Myers’ Exploring Psychology is far and away the best-selling brief introduction to psychology. Thoroughly reexamined page by page, line by line, and reference by reference, each new edition is both refreshingly innovative and reassuringly Myers.
The new Seventh Edition is both classic Myers and cutting-edge psychology, a rich presentation of ideas and applications featuring hundreds of new research citations, over 40% new photos, and state-of-the-art media and supplements. But its most compelling feature remains the inimitable Myers’ voice—a voice that speaks directly to the curiosities and experiences of all kinds of students. Myers’ writing keeps students reading…and learning.

When I had taken courses in Psychology, this book was practically my bible (so to speak). Dr. Myers is an absolutely amazing author and psychologist he makes the many faces of psychology personal to the reader. His descriptions and lectures are simple and completely understandable! And as a little extra, he has quizzes after each section to help you rehearse. I would recommend this text to anyone who needs help understanding the true nature of psychology. This text makes this course awesome!
