It’s about life.
It’s about time.
Living Psychology was written for students like you, with real lives and real concerns. Full-timers. Part-timers. Working people. Heads of families. Career changers. All with two things in common. Everyone wants relevant material they can immediately use and apply to everyday, real life. And everyone is busy.
With you in mind, Living Psychology emphasizes psychology's direct relevance to your modern busy life—careers, business, school, relationships, and society.
- Real life. Drawing on scientific research and recent advances in neuroscience, behavioral genetics, cognitive psychology, and related fields, Living Psychology shows how to use psychology to better understand everyday life. Using proven hands-on, active learning tools, interactive exercises, video clips, photos, and animations, Living Psychology also helps you learn psychology, while simultaneously teaching you to learn how to learn—so you can learn anything.
- Real time. Because students and professors are so strongly pressed for time, we organized Living Psychology into 15 chapters, each of which is condensed into brief, manageable modules to help you focus on key content. The accompanying study guides and fully integrated media will also save you time.
