Psychology Summary

Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behaviour by Richard Gross

Every teacher and lecturer in psychology has heard of this title. It has been the definitive textbook for advanced level psychology for the past decade and is a bestseller year after year. The content is strong from an academic point of view, yet accessible and clearly presented.

Giving students all-important examples that can be used in written work and examinations--exactly what examiners are looking-each chapter features:
* an introduction and overview which puts content into the wider context,
* identifies major issues, and presents questions and key theories,
* a summary that is detailed enough to be a great help during revision, and
* suggestions for further reading should students feel they need to go into greater depth, although this book covers each topic in sufficient detail to reduce the need for enormous amounts of extra research. * manageable units through features such as: Key Study Boxes which summarise influential classic and contemporary studies, Critical/Topical Discussion Boxes which place topics in context, relating them to current social debates (e.g. cross-cultural psychology), Case Study boxes which describe individual in-depth studies.
