Based on the extensively revised Santrock's "Psychology 6e, Psychology Brief Edition is a highly readable, practical and research oriented introduction to the discipline. The Brief Edition was developed to satisfy the demand for a shorter text that could easily be covered in one semester. Chapters were rewritten to maintain the continuity and pedagogy that has made Santrock a student and market favorite. Memory, Language, and Intelligence have been combined to form one cohesive chapter and the health psychology and statistics coverage has been moved into an appendix. Santrock provides faculty and students with the most relevant introduction to psychology available, no other Introductory text provides a better balance of research vs. pedagogy, content vs. applications, depth vs. breadth, and theoretical vs. practical information. All of this is presented in the clearly understandable and straightforward prose that Santrock is renowned for and in a highly visual design that is pedagogically sound and engaging without being distracting.
