1 Review
A textbook treatment of the same psychological problems addressed by self-help books. Weiten (psychology, Santa Clara U.) and Lloyd (psychology, Georgia Southern U.) argue that accurate knowledge of the principles of psychology can help people with adjustment, which they define as the process by which one manages the stresses of everyday life. The material is organized into sections on the dynamics of adjustment, the interpersonal realm, developmental transitions, and mental and physical health.

This was the exact book sold at my college bookstore. However the bookstore wanted more than double the price. I saved a lot of money this semester thanks to Overstock. Read full review
