Show synopsis An introductory excursion across the field of psychology will be more meaningful if students see how the material reflects and explains their own lives. No textbook does this better than the new edition of Don and Sandra Hockenbury's "Discovering Psychology. As always, the Hockenburys offer a highly personable tour of the discipline. In a narrative filled with engaging anecdotes and stories (often from their own lives and experiences), the authors continually find the words and images that make abstract material real and relevant--without oversimplifying the science. The "Third Edition includes redesigned chapter reviews, many new photos, illustrations, tables and cartoons, and extensive new research using more than 800 new references. With its class-tested pedagogy, student-friendly design, automatic free study guide, and state-of-the-classroom media and supplements package, there is no text better equipped for introducing students to the science that speaks most directly to their everyday lives.
