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.

Theresa L. White is a professor of Psychology at Le Moyne College and an adjunct associate professor in Neuroscience and Physiology at SUNY Upstate Medical University. She received her undergraduate degree in psychology from Boise State University. Both of her higher degrees in experimental psychology are from English universities; her Masters of Science degree is from Oxford University (New College) and her PhD is from the University of Warwick. Dr. White's research is concerned with cognitive aspects of olfaction, or the way that people think about smells and flavors. She currently teaches Research Methods, Sensation and Perception, and Brain and Behavior. Dr. White lives in Syracuse, New York, where winters sometimes bring more than 180 inches of snow. When the lakes are frozen, Dr. White fills her time with travel and by singing in a gospel choir. Once the water will allow it, she enjoys racing her Hobie 16 sailboat.
