Overview

Covering all the major concepts and theories while still presenting the exciting and practical applications of psychology is a challenge. In order to meet this challenge, Huffman presents a fully integrated package that sets the stage for a perfectly choreographed learning experience. It includes a pedagogical system that makes psychology easier to learn. Readers will also find a robust suite of multimedia learning resources, including animations, interactive exercises, simulations and virtual experiments, and brief video clips. Psychologists can use the ninth edition as a reference for the theories and concepts.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In this textbook, Huffman (Palomar College) introduces students to the basic foundations of psychology by incorporating life applications and active learning." (Book News Inc, November 2010)
From The Critics
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is the ninth edition of a popular introductory textbook in psychology. This edition brings with it new research, greater emphasis on real-world applications of psychology, APA-linked learning objectives, and gender and cultural diversity examples.
Purpose: As the field of psychology evolves, so must the textbooks that we use to teach the next generation of psychologists and mental health providers. Typically, most college-level texts are revised and updated every 3 to 4 years to keep up with the changing literature and advances in the field. The author of this textbook has a strong appreciation and understanding of psychology. She is a tremendous educator and writer, which is consistently demonstrated in this latest edition.
Audience: As a college-level textbook, it is targeted at college-age students enrolled in introductory psychology. Instructors will find the book easy to use and the presentation of the material straightforward with real-world examples to aid in teaching. The author, a long-time educator and prolific writer, provides a solid foundation for students with this updated edition.
Features: The first 16 chapters cover the major areas of focus in introductory psychology. Two additional chapters (17 and 18) are available upon request and cover industrial/organizational psychology and psychology at work in the global economy. Among the many new features is Psychology at Work, which introduces students to how psychology affects their everyday lives and promotes careers in psychology. The APA-linked learning objectives outline the 10 major areas the APA has determined as learning outcomes in introductory psychology. This edition includes new sections on gender and cultural diversity along with critical thinking/active learning exercises. As with many introductory psychology texts, the discussion of psychopharmacological treatments in chapter 15 could be stronger; however, this is much improved from the eighth edition.
Assessment: This is an excellent textbook for introductory psychology.

    LOOSE-LEAF FORMAT IS THE BEST EVER!!

    At over 600 pages, this text is brimming with the most up-to-date, comprehensive material for today's psychology student. The graphics and real-world examples greatly enhance the learning experience. Its loose-leaf format allows you to put the chapter(s) you are working on in your 3-ring binder, rather than lugging a huge, heavy text around. It is also much more convenient than reading a big, cumbersome book. This is one of the best texts I've used in my entire college career!

    Very very sucky.

    I looked online for hours to find this book for my psychology class. It was between this and one other book that was a few bucks more. I wish I would have went with the other book. I just don't get why, not in any description of this book does it mention that its loose pages with holes in it so that you can put it in a binder. Which for some reason is labeled as "more convenient", when its seriously not. Sure all the information is correct and what not, but if I wanted a bunch of loose unorganized paper I would have just printed the book out myself. Not only that but I cannot sell it back to anyone now, which was my whole purpose of BUYING this book this semester and not renting. And to top it off its not like I could sent it back because my class already started and this book already took a week and a half to get to me which already put me behind in my studies. Basically overall disgustingly dissatisfied.
