The authors--respected researchers and writers of popular press titles--invite students to join them on a tour of their favorite subject--psychological science. The new edition takes a closer look at the role psychology plays in our society, with new material in Chapter 2 that looks at the truth about psychological science, the rate of replication in published studies, and how critical thinking is foundational in science and life. Chapter 1 presents a new look at the history of the science with unexpected stories and new insights into its surprising origins. Each chapter has been fully updated with research and examples to portray a field that is constantly evolving and illuminating the world today. Combined with LaunchPad, including the LearningCurve adaptive quizzing system, the new Fifth Edition is a powerful way to introduce students to the science of psychology.
