This classic text is built around the central theme of presenting psychology as a science and applying that science to our daily lives. Psychology and Life continues to provide a rigorous, research-based presentation that demonstrates that this research has immediate implications on students' lives. This edition has been streamlined to be briefer without shirking either classic or cutting-edge research. Richard Gerrig is now the lead author of this classic text. His background as a cognitive psychologist has complemented Philip Zimbardo's social psychology expertise since the fourteenth edition. He has made major contributions to the book with new research in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Psychology and Life is now the sole, premiere text accompanying the revised Discovering Psychology Telecourse, available for fall 2001 classes.
