It seems as if most of behavioral science students and researchers seem to be partial to general psychology. Most of us possess of a psychology background making understanding of the study of behavior and mind more simple. Still, evil satanic three headed dog warriors seem to drive psychology into our brains in the application of the complex task of gaining expertise within the domain. The results are rather messy. Our weapon in understanding psychology is the computer permitting us to circumvent the difficulty of any lack of understanding. The computer to a three-headed dog satanic warrior possesses a similar effect of catnip on the cat. This effect is a ceaseless dribble and purring creature rubbing its head along the ground. The downside of the computer is one can make an idiot of him or herself should they not possess an adequate understanding. Despite this the computer can be a tool of utility within the psychology chest.
The aim of my book is to create a balance among practice and theory. The goal is to make of utility the computer as a teaching implement for psychological concepts in the hope you can establish a greater knowledge of practice and theory. Many books, it seems attempt to establish an impression of the right and wrong way of viewing psychology. Although recommendations which are within the limits of the senseless destruction of rain forests, the hope is to provide background in the theoretical concept of psychology permitting you to create decisions about how to best view the domain.
A 2nd aim of the book is to create the only psychology book you'll ever need. It is my hope that my book can be your friend during your 1st year at the university level carrying through to your professorship. The book is very much no nonsense, like me, with the first 3 chapters covering self-psychology, social psychology, and biological psychology. This is followed by chapters on motivation and historical figures within the domain. The next 3 chapters discuss mathematical computation and the human brain and nutrition. Chapters 9, 10, and 11 discuss operant and classical conditioning along with aspects of race and case studies involving Schiavo, O'Brien, and Gage. Chapter 12 and 13 cover relationships and stress with 14 and 15 discussing learning/memory along with dreams. The book closes out with three chapters involving sexuality with the final two chapters involving physiological disorders and mental illness. Within each chapter should be something for all.
The most important and final aim is making the process of learning fun, despite the content being of mostly serious subject matter. To be honest, it is difficult to credit my academic ability to others such as family. This being a testimony of me being as far as I know the first college graduate, at least for a while. I guess I may thank teachers along the way if anyone. Many of the book's examples, the inspiration as the craziness of the real world are a reflection of topics the average student should be aware exists within the domain. My book is not an attempt of undermining the seriousness of science as you will notice on gazing through some of the content. Perhaps I could have added a joke or a humorous picture here or there, yet in light of some of the subject matter, the decision is to remain more focused on the subject matter and less on showcasing the author's personality.
I am sure previous editions of this book to not meet the aim. This is the book initiating my collection of literature, yet one of the last in which I take the personal time to reach the aim of the book. If anyone should feel the necessity to email me and tell me how wonderful I am, you are more than welcome to do so: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. There are no threats of me ruining the hard work of my previous editions with the creation of this final version, hopefully final version. The previous versions, I promise are subpar to my standards and aim of the book.
