Backed by a strong and current research base, Brannon and Feist's proven book offers balanced coverage of the cognitive, behavioral, and biological approaches to health psychology. Adopters praise its even-handed discussions of research and applications, as well as the equal emphasis given to illness and prevention. Integrated coverage of physiology (including immunity, pain, and stress) rounds out the text. The authors include many innovative learning tools in every chapter to encourage active participation, giving students the strategies and tools for behavior modification and critical thinking.

Linda Brannon received her Ph.D. in human experimental psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Brannon and co-author Jess Feist are both professors in the department of Psychology at McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana, where they have been teaching since receiving their doctorates. After becoming interested in the emerging field of health psychology, Brannon and Feist co-authored the first edition of this text in the 1980s, and they have enjoyed expanding and developing their text along with the field for more than two decades. In addition to her work in health psychology, Dr. Brannon has authored a text on gender and is co-author of an introductory psychology text.

Gregory J. Feist has taught at San Jose State University in California. He received his Ph.D. in Personality Psychology from the University of California - Berkeley and is Undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts - Amherst. He is widely published in personality and creativity, scientific eminence, and the psychology of science. His research in creativitiy has been recognized by receipt of an Erly Career Award from Division for Psychology and the Arts (Division 10) of the American Psychological Association. He is also on the Editorial Board of Review of General Psychology. Tomi-Ann Roberts is the Winkler Herman Professor of Psychology at Colorado College. She received her PhD in social and personality psychology in 1990 from Stanford University, and her BA in psychology from Smith College in 1985. Her publications in the areas of gender, personality, and emotion psychology include "Objectification Theory," an original theory that has generated a great deal of research into the causes and consequences of the sexual objectification of girls and women. The first paper she co-authored on this topic is the most cited article in the 35-year history of the journal Psychology of Women Quarterly. She served on the American Psychological Association's Task Force on the Sexualization of Girls, is coauthor of a forthcoming book, the Sexualization of Girls and Girlhood: Causes, Consequences and Resistance, and continues to work on both empirical research, applied consulting work, and media efforts in this area. In addition to her teaching in both psychology and gender studies at Colorado College, she currently serves on the executive committee of APA's Division 35, chairs a Task Force on Educating Through Feminist Research, and is a certified Laughter Yoga Leader.
