Description:

A project of the FABBS Foundation, Psychology and the Real World: Essays Illustrating Fundamental Contributions to Society brings together a virtual "Who's Who" from across the spectrum of contemporary psychological science to describe-in clear, captivating ways-the research they have passionately pursued and what it means to us. This is not a book of reprinted articles-each contribution is an original essay written exclusively for this project. The authors are leading scientists whose work exemplifies the way psychological research benefits us all. Book jacket.
