Overview


Co-written by an author who garners more accolades and rave reviews from instructors and students with each succeeding edition, INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY: GATEWAYS TO MIND AND BEHAVIOR, TWELFTH EDITION attracts and holds the attention of even difficult-to-reach students. The Twelfth Edition's hallmark continues to be its pioneering integration of the proven-effective SQ4R learning system (Survey, Question, Read, Reflect, Review, Recite), which promotes critical thinking as it guides students step-by-step to an understanding of psychology's broad concepts and diversity of topics. Throughout every chapter, these active learning tools--together with the book's example-laced writing style, discussions of positive psychology, cutting-edge coverage of the field's new research findings, and excellent media resources--ensure that users find the study of psychology fascinating, relevant, and above all, accessible.

    Buyers Beware

    I ordered a new textbook for college and had to wait a week for delivery when I request 1-3days shippin'. And when it was delivered the bottom edges was bent and crush, the hard front cover was bend, and the inside of the text and the spine had some (wadworth learning) advertisement. Don't even get me started on the concept map and revisediew. The only reason I didn't return it was that I broke the seal. If you want to get this book then go ahead, just don't get it online.

    - a generalist's glimpse at psychology

    Unfortunately it is very general, but it is an awesome read. It literally reads unlike the typical textbook where its too dense, lacks wordplay, and stays away from humor. Although I must say the pictures were sort of random in some parts. But for the students out there who need this textbook, it really is a compelling read. The fact that it touches on nearly every topic there is in psychology coupled with the media outlets, this book could help sway those who are undecided in whether to pursue psychology after first year.
