Why take psychology? What makes psychology a science? Can it really help to understand feelings and behaviors? Or how get along with family and friends? This textbook intends to teach about the psychology of our lives a experience for students at all levels. Any student, regardless of age or background, will find it a text that speaks directly to him or her, and will embrace it not just for its grade-raising potential, but for its revelations about what makes a person a stronger student, a more tuned-in friend or partner, a more effective worker, or a wiser parent.
