Why Things Go Right.The Science of Psychology: An Appreciative View Study Editionby Laura King (University of Missouri at Columbia) is the first text to bring a truly appreciative view of psychology-as a science and for exploring behavior-to introductory students. It is built around the idea that students must study the discipline of psychology as a whole, that the sub-disciplines are intricately connected, and that human behavior is best understood by exploring its functioning state in addition to its potential dysfunctions.. .In this new Study Edition, Laura King maintains her extremely popular blend of contemporary research and writing that maximizes students' interest. This edition offers multiple choice review questions throughout each chapter as well as practice quizzes and exams..
