Counter Books in the popular Easy Way series present basic subject matter in clear language. Material is presented in a way that makes these books ideal as self-teaching guides, but Easy Way titles are also preferred by many teachers as supplements to classroom textbooks. General readers seeking out information often turn to Easy Way titles for general background and orientation when starting out in new career-related fields. All Easy Way books contain both short quizzes and longer tests with answers to help readers gauge their learning progress. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color for quick and easy reference This book covers much the same material that is taught on a college introductory level. A brief history and overview of modern psychology is followed by chapters on perception, conditioning and learning, states of consciousness, human sexuality, personality testing, abnormal behavior and its treatments, and more.
