Overview

Far and away the bestselling brief introduction to psychology, David Myers' Exploring Psychology doesn't just present the story of the psychology. It involves students deeply in that story, as they learning to think critically about psychology’s core ideas, breakthrough research findings, and wide-ranging applications to their lives and the world around them.

The new Eighth Edition is both classic Myers and cutting-edge psychological science, a rich presentation more than ever before, helps students develop the critical thinking skills they need to make their encounters with psychological science successful and personally enriching. The most extensively revision to date, the Eighth Edition features many hundreds of new research citations, over 40% new photos, and state-of-the-art media and supplements--plus an all new critical thinking feature, Test for Success: Critical Thinking Exercises.

Still, with the book’s continual evolution, one constant remains: the inimitable writing of David Myers, who continues to show an uncanny ability to engage the curiosities of all kinds of students as they explore both the scientific and human aspects of the field of psychology.
