How to Think Like a Psychologist: Critical Thinking in Psychology
Featuring an informal writing style throughout, this text uses a question-and-answer format to explore some of the most common questions students ask about psychology - which are often stumbling blocks in their introduction to the discipline. Topics are keyed to chapters of typical introductory psychology texts, focus on issues that are personally relevant to students, feature many everyday examples, and include exercises that encourage students to think critically and to relate the material to their own lives.
