Introduction to Psychology is the definitive introduction for readers new to the subject. Written by more than 20 leading psychologists from Europe and Australasia, it provides comprehensive coverage of all the major aspects of psychology taught in colleges and universities today. Starting with the biological bases of psychology and with methodology, the book then moves logically through the study of standard topics, such as motivation, emotion, sensing, perception, development, memory, language, thought, and personality, on to applied areas. Its coverage of applied psychology is unusually thorough, incorporating chapters on work psychology, health psychology, organizational psychology, and forensic psychology.
