Description

Psychology is designed to meet the scope and sequence for the single-semester introduction to psychology course. For many students, this may be their only college-level psychology course. As such, this textbook provides an important opportunity for students to learn the core concepts of psychology and understand how those concepts apply to their lives. The authors strive to make psychology, as a discipline, interesting and accessible to students. A comprehensive coverage of core concepts is grounded in both classic studies and current and emerging research, including coverage of the DSM-5 in discussions of psychological disorders. The text incorporates discussions that reflect the diversity within the discipline, as well as the diversity of cultures and communities across the globe.

    You can find this book for FREE online at the publisher website, openstax.org, so I am appalled that it is nearly $5 USD here.

    The reviewer below complained that this textbook is not optimized for mobile. I disagree - it works great on the iPad and although reading a textbook on a small iPhone screen is not the most pleaseant, it still works just fine on mobile! I prefer this version over the PDF. Cool interactives too.

    Got this for a psych class I'm taking and now can't even use it. So far it feels like a waste.

    This book has not been formatted for a mobile device and should not have been sold in iBooks. It is completely unreadable/ unusable. Very disappointing and a waste of $4.99.
