About the book:

In this thorough revision of his best-selling text, Jim Kalat does not simply cover psychology's major theories and studies. He creates a more active learning environment that encourages students to question information, asking themselves, "How was this conclusion reached? Does the evidence really support it?"

Kalat teaches students to separate what sounds plausible from what can be backed up scientifically, and he shows students how to tell the difference between sound and flawed evidence. He succeeds in getting students to use the scientific method to question assertions, and in engaging their interests so they want to know more. Like no other author, Kalat is able to speak directly to students, drawing them into psychological concepts and information in a way that actually changes their approach to learning. Kalat's relaxed, conversational writing style, coupled with humor, personal anecdotes, and exercises students can try themselves, help make the Sixth Edition an exceptional learning tool.
