Dennis Coon's popular text presents psychology in a way that sparks readers' curiosity, insights, imagination, and interest--getting students "hooked" on psychology and eager to read on. The book manages to cover not only essential topics at the core of psychology but many others at the cutting edge of current knowledge. The first author to integrate the proven SQ4R (Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Reflect, 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." --Thomson/Wadsworth."@en ;
