Review quote

The present volume is a major enterprise, into which much work, and much information has been poured.
The Psychology of Education Review

It is ahead of it's time scholastically - state of the art research; colour coding helps retain critical information. This will be the leading introduction for British undergraduates in psychology for the next few decades.
Dr A Cassidy, Belfast Institute of Further & Higher Education

This text is a complete education in psychological science from a contemporary critical perspective, provocative and engages the reader to think critically about the application of psychological principles in everyday human behaviour and social interaction.
