16 Reviews
A supplemental text for Introductory Psychology, History of Psychology, Research Methods, or other related psychology courses when an appreciation for the research process is sought. This one-of-a-kind supplemental text fills the gap between our psychological knowledge and the research that made that kind of knowledge possible. In giving forty of the pivotal studies which have shaped this science the attention they richly deserve, Hock's intent is that readers fully experience the process and excitement of great research and discovery, rather than simply read about various findings.
