Through their own research and clinical work, as well as their experiences as teachers, highly regarded authors Stephen Kosslyn and Robin Rosenberg have found that exploring psychology from multiple perspectives further enhances learning. Psychology: The Brain, The Person, The World, Second Edition examines psychological concepts from the levels of the brain (biological factors), the person (beliefs, desires, and feelings) and the world (social, cultural, and environmental factors) and their interactions, in order to help students organize and integrate topics within and across chapters and actively apply psychology to their lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"It is one of the most engaging texts I've seen. The chapter stories are among the best I've seen, and really flow well with the text. Kosslyn & Rosenberg do a great job threading these stories throughout the book. The writing style is solid and consistent." - Dan Horn, University of Michigan

"Because of their complementary backgrounds in clinical psychology and cognitive neuroscience, the authors bring both a biological and psychological as well as an applied multidimensional approach to the understanding of human behavior." - Joseph Davis, San Diego State University

"As you read the Kosslyn & Rosenberg textbook you can certainly see the combined influence of the authors, one being a cognitive neuroscientist and the other a clinical psychologist. The levels of analysis theme clearly reflects these dual influences." - Kathy Immel, University of Wisconsin Fox Valley

"The Kosslyn & Rosenberg textbook definitely incorporates timely research and does so in a way that makes it understandable for students." - Kathy Immel, University of Wisconsin Fox Valley

"The writing style is terrific." - Paul G. Shinkman, University of North Carolina

"The second edition has a wonderful 'feel' to it." - Marisa B. McLeod, Santa Fe Community College
