Why take psychology? What makes psychology a science? Can it really help me understand my feelings and behaviors? Or how I get along with family and friends? Now from the world's foremost author for the introductory psychology classroom comes a new textbook that makes learning about the psychology of our lives a captivating experience for students at all levels.
Carried by the author's acclaimed empathetic voice, Psychology in Everyday Life is David Myers' most inviting text to date. This new book represents a breakthrough in the interplay of text and visuals, yet, as always, provides a rich source of scientific insights into the lives we live. Any student, regardless of age or background, will find it a text that speaks directly to him or her, and will embrace it not just for its grade-raising potential, but for its revelations about what makes a person a stronger student, a more tuned-in friend or partner, a more effective worker, or a wiser parent.
