More than any other introductory psychology textbook, the Hockenburys’ brief book is the one in which students see themselves – and the world they live in. The new edition builds on that distinction, presenting the discipline with a unique understanding of today’s students in all their diversity, emphasizing the field’s immediate impact on their lives. Without sacrificing science, Don and Sandy Hockenbury draw on personal experiences and anecdotes to illustrate essential concepts and important research directions.
