Psychology: A Journey

Psychology: A Journey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'In a course where professors are frequently confronted by students who haven\'t actually read their textbooks, this text offers a solution. The shortest, most succinct of the books written by Dennis Coon, PSYCHOLOGY: A JOURNEY presents psychology in a way that sparks readers\' curiosity, insights, imagination, and interest?getting students \"hooked\" on psychology and eager to read on. The first author to integrate the proven SQ4R (survey, question, read, recite, relate, and review) active learning system into a psychology textbook, Coon helps readers grasp major concepts, develop a broad understanding of psychology\'s diversity, and see for themselves how psychology relates to the challenges of everyday life. Because readers become actively involved with the material, they develop a basic understanding of psychology that they take with them into their future courses and careers.'
