David Myers’ bestselling Psychology has reached a wider audience of students and instructors with each new edition. His new partnership with coauthor C. Nathan DeWall matches two dedicated educators and scholars, each passionate about teaching psychological science through writing and interactive media.
With this new edition of the #1 bestselling Psychology, Myers and DeWall take full advantage of what an integrated text/media learning combination can do. New features move students from reading the chapter to actively learning online: How Would You Know puts students in the role of scientific researcher and includes tutorials on key research design principles; Assess Your Strengths self-tests help students learn a little more about themselves, and include tips about nurturing key strengths.
These and other innovations rest on the same foundations that have always distinguished a new David Myers edition—exhaustive updating (hundreds of new citations), captivating writing, and the merging of rigorous science with a broad human perspective that engages both the mind and heart.

NEW Digital Feature, Assess Your Strengths
This feature helps students connect what they are learning to their own lives, letting them conduct self-assessments with the same inventories and questionnaires researchers use across psychological science. Students will find additional information about the strength being tested (for example, personal growth initiative, social sensitivity, and short-term memory), as well as tips for nurturing that strength in their own lives.

These online activities engage students in the scientific process, showing how psychological research begins with a question—and how key decision points can alter the meaning and value of a psychological study. In a fun, interactive environment, students learn about important aspects of research methods and analysis, such as random assignment, validity, and reliability.
