From the Publisher:

A deserved bestseller - a clear & comprehensive introduction
Have you ever wondered why Margaret Thatcher deepened her speaking voice when she became British Prime Minister? how the managers responsible for approving the launch of the ill-fated Challenger space-shuttle reached their disastrous decision? why birds sing more intensively in the early morning? how TV ‘psychics’ bend spoons?

Nicky Hayes’ exciting and accessible text, Foundations of Psychology, answers these questions and many more. Designed for anybody who is learning about psychology for the first time, this comprehensive book explains complex ideas using clear and understandable language.

By reading this book you will discover how historical contexts and the development of the various movements in psychology have helped to shape the subject; fascinating real-world applications of psychological theories; the latest international research findings and methodologies, along with contemporary debates.

Foundations of Psychology is an essential textbook for budding psychologists as well as students of other disciplines who need an introduction to the subject. The book is accompanied by an extensive supporting website where you can explore the subject further and test your knowledge.
