Some brief overview of this book

Over 2 million students have learned psychology from Dennis Coon. Serving as a guide and mentor to students, Coon uses humor and everyday analogies to make abstract concepts concrete, such as the cerebral cortex looks like a giant, wrinkled walnut. Using a consistent pedagogical structure, the author helps students learn psychology by using the tested principles of Survey, Question, Read, Recite and Review. In addition, he helps them to master psychology with a fourth R, Relate, which requires them to relate their new knowledge to their own experience, helping abstract ideas to become concrete. The book uses a chunking principle, asking students to read major sections, then review them, before they go on. As the new title of the book indicates, PSYCHOLOGY: A MODULAR APPROACH TO MIND AND BEHAVIOR (formerly called ESSENTIALS OF PSYCHOLOGY) is now modular, and is the medium-sized text in a three-book set authored by Dennis Coon. By separating the chapters into modules, this edition goes even further in chunking content for student mastery. This text covers the basic set of topics but differs by having two chapters on development, a separate chapter on Gender and Sexuality (Chapter 15), and a concluding chapter on Applied Psychology (Chapter 17). The book is frequently described as fun because it presents topics that are of interest and relevance to students, relates it to their lives, and provides many engaging applications that students can use in their own lives. For teachers who want a book that students will read, enjoy, and savor – Coons text is the perfect choice.

A few words about book's author

After earning a doctorate in psychology from the University of Arizona, Dennis Coon taught for 22 years at Santa Barbara City College, California. Throughout his career, Dr. Coon has especially enjoyed the challenge of teaching introductory psychology. He and his wife, Sevren, now live in Tucson, where he continues to teach, write, edit, and consult. Dr. Coon is the author of Introduction to Psychology, as well as Essentials of Psychology. Together, these texts have been used by over two million students. Dr. Coon frequently serves as a reviewer and consultant to publishers, and he edited the best-selling trade book Choices. In his leisure hours, Dr. Coon enjoys hiking, photography, painting, woodworking, and music. He also designs, builds, and plays classical and steel string acoustic guitars. He has published articles on guitar design and occasionally offers lectures on this topic, in addition to his more frequent presentations on psychology. His return to Arizona has made it possible for him to fulfill a lifelong dream of using operant conditioning to teach scorpions to tap dance.
