Psychology: An Introduction (10th edition)

by Benjamin B. Lahey

This introductory undergraduate psychology text covers central concepts in a reader-friendly writing style and a highly visual format, with color photos, illustrations, cartoons, medical images, and multiple-page visual reviews of brain structures, the sense organs, stage theories of development, and theories of motivation, emotion, and personality. Pedagogical features include chapter outlines and prologues, nested review and summary features, and close attention to visual cues such as typeface, size, and color, as well as clear verbal cues to alert readers to new information. An introductory chapter describes study skills, defines critical thinking, and gives advice especially for first-generation college students. Coverage progresses from foundations through awareness, learning and cognition, developmental psychology, the self, health and adjustment, and social context. This tenth edition offers streamlined content and a slightly shorter book, with a new chapter on the interplay of nature and nurture. Information on diversity and culture, sex differences, gender roles, and sexuality is integrated throughout the text. Lahey is affiliated with the University of Chicago.
