From the Publisher"…Very engaging. As a matter of fact, I haven't seen many texts that measure up to it. ...There is something for every student. Those more keen on research have the focus on research boxes. Those who look for more application have the previews and clinical file boxes. For the visual learner, there is adequate inclusion of statistical tables and illustrations. The knowledge builders contained within each chapter are good for students who do not buy study guides, but could use the direction for review of material."
"...I find the chapters to be organized very well. The transitions are smooth and very logical. Again, I believe that many of the examples given are extraordinarily pithy."
"...Almost effortlessly, the student learns about psychological research and theory because the writing style is so fluid and personable."
"The structure and flow of the text is easy to follow for the first-time college student, or for the returning college student who is juggling a career, a family, and classes. Easy-to-follow ideas and review sections make keeping up in class less stressful."
"Coon does a great job at introducing students to psychology's theoretical concepts while developing familiarity with psychological terminology."
