Overview

This text is an unbound, binder-ready edition.

Psychology Around Us, Second Edition empowers students to build psychological literacy by tying together topics and sub-topics throughout. Following a familiar organization, the unique Tying It Together sections in Psychology Around Us highlight the significance of psychology’s big picture, rather than presenting the field as disjointed topics, chapter-by-chapter. The Psychology Around Us program is full of rich, powerful media resources and supplements that have been streamlined by a team of psychology instructors like you. Psychology Around Us offers professors and students a range of tools to successfully tie psychology all together, highlighting that psychology is an integrated science.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Comer and Gould (both psychology, Princeton U.) offer an introductory textbook designed to interest students in all aspects of psychology rather than just the exotic abnormal behavior that tends to fascinate them." (Book News Inc, November 2010)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This second edition of an introductory psychology textbook includes new research, new pedagogical tools, new chapters on psychological disorders and their treatment, chapter-opening vignettes, guided learning objectives, practical examples and applications, helpful study tools, online self-assessments, and linked media assets.
Purpose: The authors are well aware of the need for a textbook that keeps up with the discipline of psychology and the lives of students. The authors have a number of goals for their book, but the one that stands out is helping students appreciate that all human behavior is fascinating, and to engender the same excitement in students for a course in psychology as they have for an abnormal psychology course. They succeed in creating a book that gets students thinking beyond the book and the classroom setting to appreciate the vast field of psychology.
Audience: This is a college-level textbook for students enrolled in introductory psychology. Instructors will find it easy to use, with its straightforward presentation and real-world examples. Both authors are well respected and continue to have a strong presence not just in introductory psychology, but in abnormal psychology and neuroscience.
Features: The 16 well-written and focused chapters cover the major areas of introductory psychology. There are many new features, including "Your Brain and Behavior Layouts" and "Psychology Around Us." As the book was published shortly before the release of DSM-5 in May 2013, it highlights DSM-IV-TR. The book is well rounded and clearly provides a solid base for both critical thinking and applied psychology.
Assessment: There are many introductory psychology textbooks on the market, but few that combine both a solid scientific base and real-world applicability. The authors have found that winning combination and have created a second edition better than their first.

    Really tried to be relevant

    Lots of current references, from internet trolling to reality television. My professor used the tests that came directly from the publisher, however, and there were errors on those.
