Overview

A long awaited revision Psychology 5/e continues to be a sophisticated, no-nonsense, research-oriented text that features critical thinking through "In-Depth" analysis of research studies. Briefer than the more encyclopedic texts, it is also selective in its coverage and focuses on cutting-edge cognitive and neuroscience research.

Considered by many to be the gold standard of psychology textbooks, the new edition of Wortman & Loftus with new co-author Charles Weaver returns the text to its familiar place as an accessible and thorough introduction to the discipline, deeply committed to the scientific approach to psychology. The new edition incorporates a discussion of four key themes in psychology that act as a means of pulling together information from the various subfields and presenting a "Big Picture" of psychology.
