Help students to understand and evaluate classic and contemporary Psychology with the best-selling textbook from Gross, that is still setting the standard, 500,000 students later.



Gross is the 'bible' for students of Psychology and anyone in related fields such as Counselling, Nursing and Social Work who needs a reliable, catch-all text.

All the major domains of Psychology are covered in detail across 50 manageable chapters that will help you get to grips with anything from the nervous system to memory, from attachment to personality, and everything in-between. A final section on issues and debates allows students to cast a critical eye on the research process, to explore the nature of Psychology as an evolving science, and understand some of the ethical issues faced by Psychologists.



- Brings contemporary Psychology alive with double-page features which showcase contributions from Psychology's leading figures

- Builds understanding and knowledge with Introductions and Summaries, Ask Yourself Questions, Key Studies, Critical and Cross-Cultural material

- Enables students to be completely prepared for assessment with improved coverage throughout of work from neuroscience, neuropsychology and evolutionary psychology

- Helps more able students get better grades by explicitly linking different areas of Psychology

5.0 out of 5 stars enGROSSing 10 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was reluctant at first to purchase this book as one of my course colleagues insisted it was only for A-Level students. However, after reading numerous reviews I was persuaded to buy it. It arrived today and the assumption my colleague made in regards of it being a 'A-Level book' is completely false. It is THE reference book in psychology with every core concept in psychology covered. And what is more, even though it covers the vast majority of core topics, it does not comprimise in detail. There are also excellent illustrations in the text which I'm sure will appeal to the 'visual' learners with very clear and concise captions. As this is the latest edition it is very contemporary and up to date with modern psychology. And lastly, the front-cover ain't bad either.

I knew Richard Gross as a teacher at a London College. He was an exceptional teacher. He had just published the first edition of The Science of Mind and Behaviour at the time.., and it quickly became popular. I still have it now (it helped me occasionally in Uni as well). Now my 16 year old son is studying Psychology at AS level and I will be buying the latest edition for him. I have no doubt that it will be as useful to him as the original edition was to me.

How often is an author able to produce a multigenerational study aid book of this type?

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, well written, and concise. 7 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
Essential for any psychology student, this book offers an overview of all of the basics, in-depth information of the important bits . If your reading list for your course lists this book, I'd suggest buying a copy for yourself as it's likely to be in high demand at the university library.
