" I very much hope that you will learn a lot about psychology from the second edition of Psychology. I also hope that you enjoy what you learn and that the book will take you to places you had not thought of exploring. This is the beauty of psychology. Opening one door will lead to you to several others."
G. Neil Martin

Introducing the second edition of this highly successful introductory psychology text. You will not find a better textbook package: it includes a lively text, a Companion Web Site, as well as a wealth of lecture resources. Psychology is a comprehensive and superbly written text: it engages, it informs, it facilitates debate, and it combines the best of design and pedagogy with sound European rigor.

Psychology covers in depth and in lively and critical fashion all the major aspects of 1st year undergraduate psychology courses. The authors emphasise how the various sub-disciplines in psychology are interrelated. Importantly, the text covers not only new and important research but also the application of that research to real-life problems and situations, giving the book a genuine 'real world' approach to the subject. Psychology contains a wealth of features to help you engage with the material and appreciate the many fascinating areas of enquiry within the field.

Review:

Reviews of the second edition:

"The nature, debates and controversies inherent in contemporary psychology are captured in an informative and critical, yet stimulating manner"                                                    

"Pedagogically, this book is superior to the majority  that I have encountered and this is its main strength"                                                                                                              

"...this text is notable and indeed refreshing as it frequently refers to European research" 

"Many of the tutorial ideas and questions for debate contained in the lecturer's resource manual have been well received...The companion webiste is extremely useful"            

"The text is well written and well structured" 

Gail Kinman, Senior Lecturer, University of Luton                                          (Journal of Health, Social and Environmental Issues, 2004, Vol. 5, No.1)

"The layout is of the best US glossy standard with subtle boxes designed to facilitate critical thinking - "Questions to think about", "Cutting edge", "Psychology in action", "Key terms and chapter reviews".

Hugh Coolican - Coventry University

Times Higher Education Supplement - November 26 2004, p.XIX

Reviews of the first edition:

"A student could come to grips intellectually with arguments on the basis of the text alone…the overall level of the analysis in the book is very high for an introductory textbook with clear exposition of often quite difficult ideas"
P.O’Donnell, Glasgow University
