Overview

At just $39 (price to the bookstore), Richard Griggs’ concise textbook is an affordable yet authoritative alternative for the introductory psychology course.  It is a remarkable volume that offers—despite its brevity—a rich survey of the field’s fundamental ideas and the research behind them, and a robust, carefully-developed supplements package for students and instructors.  No other text and supplements package offers such value for such an affordable price.

The new edition is thoroughly updated, especially in fast-moving areas such as neuroscience and in coverage of topics affected by the release of the DSM-5—all while maintaining the book’s trademark conciseness.
