Through five editions of this best-selling text, David Myers has guided millions of students through their introduction of psychology. The tour always includes the latest research and teaching innovations, and is always marked by Myers' genuine love of communicating the field's major ideas to an uninitiated audience. The Sixth Edition combines hallmark features (clear, compelling narrative; an integrated critical thinking theme; a superior art program) with responsive and engaging new features and a variety of spectacular, new media supplements.

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.
