For undergraduate Introductory Psychology courses.
Exceptionally well-written, this mainstream text is designed to help students “think like a psychologist" as they explore the major areas of psychology, observe the world around them, and spark in them the same passion and excitement that psychologists have for their work. The text brings home the relevance of psychology through real-world examples, practical applications, and discussions of the discipline's connections to health, education, business, law, and the environment.

Saul Kassin is Professor of Psychology at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Born and raised in New York City, he graduated with a B.S. from Brooklyn College in 1974. He received his Ph.D. in personality and social psychology from the University of Connecticut in 1978. He then spent one year at the University of Kansas and two at Purdue University. He was awarded a prestigious U.S. Supreme Court Judicial Fellowship in Washington, D.C., and then worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Psychology and Law Program at Stanford University.
Kassin is coauthor of Social Psychology (now in its 4th edition). He has also authored or edited six other books and has written numerous articles on the topics of attribution theory, social and cognitive development, and applications of psychology to jury decision-making, eyewitness testimony, confession evidence, and other aspects of law. He has served on the editorial boards of several major journals.
Away from work, Kassin has coached youth baseball. He has an insatiable appetite for sports, politics, rock'n'roll, travel, and ethnic food.From the Back Cover:
