Written with irresistible enthusiasm and humour by world-renowned researchers and popular science authors, this revised second edition includes: * Two new chapters on social psychology: Social Relationships and Social Groups* Thoroughly updated (and retitled) chapter on Psychological Disorders, offering more on social perspectives of mental health and an introduction to DSM-5 * Brand new 'Psychomythology' feature which tackles common misconceptions about the discipline through scientific evidence* All-new 'Psychology and Me' videos featuring an international range of psychologists talking about their fascinating careers and giving students advice for the future* 'Hot Science' boxes discussing cutting-edge research and neuroscience, and 'The Real World' vignettes demonstrating psychology in everyday life* Increased coverage of research methods, including new 'Stats Fact' boxes addressing often contested issues in statistics* A number of additional sections including those on executive functions, epigenetics, childhood reminiscing, self-esteem and inflated praise, and gender bias in motor development.
