Críticas:

Highly readable and engaging. Students will be captured by the author's writing." ( Hugh Riley, Baylor University)

A phenomenal textbook. It's one of a kind. I believe that it could indirectly increase the number of psych majors." ( Kevin Chapman, University of Louisville)

The writing style is excellent and the research and perspectives are extremely current." ( Gary Popoli, Stevenson University)

A great book. Okami has made psychology accessible to a new generation of students." ( Dan Muhwezi, Butler Community College)

The author's writing is flawless." ( Kathleen C. Kirasic, University of South Carolina)

Great real-world examples." ( W. Matthew Collins, Nova Southeastern University)

I am excited to share this textbook with my students. It is very effectively written and will help students expand upon and apply psychological principals to daily life in a meaningful way." ( Terry D. Burger, Indiana University Southeast)

This text integrates contemporary perspectives and current research much more effectively than other intro texts. It also has excellent graphics." ( David Pan, New Mexico Highlands University)

I was just about fed up with the 'same old, same old' generic psychology texts, but Okami has not given us that. This is really an innovative book that is respectful of the science, and respectful toward students." ( Donnell B. Griffin, Davidson County Community College)

Reseña del editor:

Research-based but highly accessible, this fresh, contemporary, and engaging volume helps students appreciate the science of psychology and understand how its principles apply to their own lives.
