David Myers's Psychology is a textbook like no other—always fresh, always introducing effective new tools for teaching and learning, and always attuned to the fascinating ways that new research can shape the introductory psychology course. The new Eighth Edition is vintage Myers. It redefines excellence for an introductory psychology textbook, raising the standard with its expanded emphasis on diversity and gender issues, its incorporation of new frontiers in research studies in such areas as neuroscience and cognition, new learning features, and its expanded media/supplements package.
Myers continues the tradition of previous editions of bonding psychological science with a broad perspective that engages both the mind and the heart.

I read the Seventh Edition, and I'm sure it's just as good as the eighth. It's not too much to digest, and with a pleasant blend of humor and 'keeping it real,' the true joys, keys, and important points of Psychology will set any Psych student on the right track.
