Straightforward and written in a friendly style, James S. Nairne's PSYCHOLOGY, Sixth Edition, uses a proven problem-solving approach to help you discover how to apply psychology to your everyday life. Dr. Nairne introduces topics by focusing on the "why" behind psychological processes before introducing what they are and how they work. You'll learn that our brains are filled with psychological "tools" that control everything from emotion to memory, and that each helps us adapt and solve important everyday problems. Nairne describes these tools, shows you how they're used, and focuses on specific situations in which they are applied. Emphasizing critical thinking and active learning, PSYCHOLOGY, Sixth Edition, provides current, comprehensive, and practical coverage that you can immediately put to good use.
