Drawing students into psychology using a unique "magazine-style" format, Rod Plotnik's modular, visually-oriented approach to the fundamentals makes even the toughest concepts engaging and entertaining for students to learn. Incorporating the latest research updates, concepts are broken down into small, easily digested chunks that allow students and instructors great flexibility in their approach to the subject -- for students, the flexibility to learn at their own pace; for instructors, the flexibility to assign as much or as little as they like. INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY is part of Thomson Advantage Books, an exciting series created specifically to deliver quality content from highly respected authors in a convenient format that will be sold to your students at a significantly lower price. This Seventh Edition expands upon Plotnik's commitment to teaching by extending the text's approach into its comprehensive ancillary package. For students, "Learning Links" features in the text connect them with the newly updated POWERSTUDY 2.0 CD-ROM. Developed by Rod Plotnik and Tom Doyle, POWERSTUDY 2.0 offers a clear, interactive way to review. In addition, adopters and their students gain free access to the Book Companion Web Site that now includes personalized Self-Study Assessments ? giving students even further assistance in reviewing and prioritizing their study time for maximum effectiveness. For instructors, a detailed ancillary package with a comprehensive Instructor's Resource Manual provides everything needed for easy, effective course prep.

Rod Plotnik earned his Ph.D. as a biological psychologist from the University of Florida and a post doctorate at Yale University. Early in his career, he realized the effectiveness of teaching students through visuals to get them excited about the material, a technique he utilizes throughout INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY, now in its Tenth Edition (Cengage Learning, 2014).
