In addition, Rathus's text features the most integrated multi-platform media package available, the full Web site that features Self-Study Assessments, Video Connections, Mobile Media and interactive versions of features from the text-all tightly connected to the text itself to give students the a powerful, comprehensive introduction to psychology.
