Introduction to Psychology
James Kalat's best-selling INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY does far more than cover major theories and studies; it encourages you to question the information and ask yourself, "How was this conclusion reached?" and "Does the evidence really support it?" In this student-praised text, Kalat challenges your preconceptions about psychology to help you become a more informed consumer of information not only during your college experience but, also as you venture into your post-college life. With his humorous writing style and hands-on "Try It Yourself" exercises, Kalat puts you at ease and gets you involved with what you are studying so that you can succeed in your course.

Review: Introduction to PsychologyUser Review - Maren - Goodreads
Other than Kalat's obvious prejudice against religion in general, I really enjoyed this text. It was humorous, well-written and definitely memorable. I actually read the 8th edition and expect the 9th is even better. Read full review

If I were to ever teach a psychology class, I would probably use Kalat's textbook as a supplement to my course. He explains concepts in a way that is easy to understand and presents a good number of "Try-It-Yourself" activities to help students remember the important stuff. Read full review
