Learning is an adventure-now students can see just how exciting it can be with Psychology: A Journey. In a course where professors are frequently confronted with students who haven't actually read their textbooks, Psychology: A Journey offers a proven and trusted solution: this popular text presents psychology in a way that sparks readers' curiosity, insights, imagination, and interest-getting students "hooked" on psychology and making them eager to read on. Journey's Canadian edition succeeds at covering not only essential topics at the core of psychology but many others at the cutting edge of current knowledge. The first psychology textbook to integrate the proven SQ4R (Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Reflect, and Review) active learning system, Journey helps readers grasp major concepts, develop a broad understanding of psychology's diversity, and see for themselves how psychology relates to the challenges of everyday life. Because readers become actively involved with the material, they develop a basic understanding of psychology that they take with them into their future courses and careers.
