Overview

This Fourth Edition of the Briefer Version is visually stunning, conceptually integrated, scientifically sound, and fun to read. Making learning easy without lowering the level of scholarship, Weiten presents introductory psychology in a way that will be meaningful to students long after they have completed the course. In this Brief Edition, as in his longer text, Wayne Weiten shows both the unity and diversity of psychology's subject matter, illuminates the process of research and its intimate link to application, and gives students a presentation that is both challenging to think about and easy to learn from.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Noting that as the field of psychology grows, introductory textbooks are getting longer and longer but the time allocated for the introductory course remains the same, Weiten (Santa Clara U.) offers a briefer version than most. He focuses on showing both the unity and diversity of the discipline's subject matter, and the process of research and its intimate line to application. No dates are mentioned for the earlier editions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
