More than any other introductory psychology textbook, the Hockenburys’ brief book presents the discipline with a unique understanding of today’s students—emphasizing its relevance and immediate impact on their lives. Without sacrificing science, the authors draw on personal experiences and anecdotes to illustrate essential concepts and important research direction.

The Fourth Edition incorporates hundreds of new research studies throughout, with particular attention to areas of intensive current research and enduring student interest, including neuroscience, lifespan development, memory, and gender and culture issues. Also new is the dramatically enhanced media and supplements package, offering more ways than ever to help students make the study of psychology a part of their world.
