Essentials of Psychology, 5th edition
In the fifth edition of Psychology, Stephen Franzoi continues to provide students with a scholarly, engaging text that shows them how psychological concepts can be applied to their lives. This new text, like its predecessor, presents the science of psychology as a 'journey of discovery' undertaken by both researchers and students. The author explains how psychology has expanded our understanding of people's thoughts, feelings, and behavior. This approach to teaching psychology encourages students to consider the relationship of psychological knowledge to their own lives, thereby making learning about psychology more personally relevant. By making these connections, students are better able to retain course content and acquire insights that can be applied to daily living. This text is thoroughly revised and has new photos, figures, animations, and a new statistics appendix added.
