Meet the Author

David Myers received his psychology Ph.D. from the University of Iowa. He has spent his career at Hope College, Michigan, where he has taught dozens of introductory psychology sections. Hope College students have invited him to be their commencement speaker and voted him "outstanding professor."

His research and writings have been recognized by the Gordon Allport Intergroup Relations Prize, by a 2010 Honored Scientist award from the Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences, by a 2010 Award for Service on Behalf of Personality and Social Psychology, by a 2013 Presidential Citation from APA Division 2, and by three dozen honorary doctorates.

With support from National Science Foundation grants, Myers' scientific articles have appeared in three dozen scientific periodicals, including Science, American Scientist, Psychological Science, and the American Psychologist. In addition to his scholarly writing and his textbooks for introductory and social psychology, he also digests psychological science for the general public. His writings have appeared in four dozen magazines, from Today's Education to Scientific American. He also has authored five general audience books, including The Pursuit of Happiness and Intuition: Its Powers and Perils.

David Myers has chaired his city's Human Relations Commission, helped found a thriving assistance center for families in poverty, and spoken to hundreds of college and community groups. Drawing on his experience, he also has written articles and a book (A Quiet World) about hearing loss, and he is advocating a transformation in American assistive listening technology (see www.hearingloop.org). For his leadership, he received an American Academy of Audiology Presidential Award in 2011, and the Hearing Loss Association of America Walter T. Ridder Award in 2012.

He bikes to work year-round and plays daily pick-up basketball. David and Carol Myers have raised two sons and a daughter, and have one granddaughter to whom he dedicates the Third Edition of Psychology in Everyday Life.

DeWall conducts research on close relationships, self-control, and aggression.

    A reviewer

    I would recommend this book to anyone. I just finished taking AP Psychology and throughout the year I found myself reading the book for fun. It is the most intersting textbook I have ever read and it made me excited about psychology. It has a very easy-to-read layout and is very well written.

    I liked it

    I mean, the book, wasn't facts only, or a thrilling novel, but as far as textbooks go I thought it was excellent, I could actually read it, and be interested, have you ever tried to just read a biology textbook . . .

    AP Psych

    I'm in AP Psychology in high school. We have book based tests nearly every week. Each chapter is around 40 pages and written in 'easy' language but does not hold my attention very long. 9/11 is mentioned too many times, but there are good comic strips and pictures. If you have to read this book for class, get the study guide book, which I don't have and am looking for right now. A lot of the test questions come from the textbook student website (which is very helpful) and the study guide.

    Very hard to read

    I just finished a Psych-100 class that used this text book. I tried reading a chapter before going to bed several times but only made it through 8-10 pages before it put me to sleep. Way to much information that does not relate to the topic being discussed in this book. It was painful reading this book. Find another Psych class that uses a different text

    Very Basic

    This text provides a good introduction, but is very simple. It seemed more suited to the highschool rather than college student. Besides being 'basic', it is hard to stay interested in the reading material.

    TOO MUCH EXTRA INFO

    I used this book for my psychology class in College. It wasn't that it was hard to read, but there was too much wasted information. I love psychology and this book never really grabbed my attention and kept it. Too much reading per chapter. Find a simpler book then this one.

    AP Psych

    I used this book in high school when I was taking AP Psych. It didn't feel like a college text book... It felt more like a dumbed down version of the information. It's funny but c'mon - how often can you use 9/11 as an example?!
