Between them, authors Davis and Palladino have spent over 50 years teaching the introductory psychology course, and they are committed to offering a book whose design, writing, price, and content meets the needs of learners at all levels. Using a conversational writing style, this engaging book offers a broad exploration of classic and contemporary research on current and emerging topics in the field, and encourages readers to recognize, first hand, how psychological concepts have meaning in their own daily lives. Investigating the "hows" and "whys" of research methods presented, this book offers frequent examination of the validity of conclusions drawn. Chapter topics cover sensation and perception, states of consciousness, basic principles of learning, motivation and emotion, memory, thinking and intelligence, lifespan developmental psychology, sex and gender, personality, psychological disorders, therapy, health psychology, social psychology, and applied psychology. For individuals seeking an introduction to the psychology field.

Editorial Reviews

An introductory text designed to be engaging and relevant, stressing practical applications of psychological research, research methods, a historical perspective, and human diversity. Coverage follows a standard sequence, beginning with the nature of psychology and its biological foundations and ending with maladaptive behaviors, therapy, and social psychology. One chapter not always found in other texts is a chapter on sex and gender. Pedagogical aids include chapter overviews, sections on the cultural and diversity perspective in each chapter, and highlighted information on myth versus science, plus review summaries, study quizes and answers, and interactive exercises such as questionnaires. This third edition contains a new chapter on industrial and organizational psychology, and more material on emotion and motivation. Davis is affiliated with Emporia State University. Palladino is affiliated with the University of Southern Indiana. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
