Essentials of Understanding Psychology by Robert Feldmankicks is a student-centered material that focuses on the unique learning needs and pace of the individual learner. Almost ‘personalized' in its approach, Essentials of Understanding (ISBN 9780073382807) treats students as individuals, thus allowing them to progress on their own letting them find the right type of study plan. Robert Feldmankicks effectively uses a ‘modules-within-chapters' book format to make it easy for both the student and the instructor to implement flexible learning. There are 11 chapters in the book. Some of the topics covered are neuroscience and behavior, sensation and perception, states of consciousness, learning, and memory. Students will also learn a great deal about thinking, language, and intelligence, motivation and emotion, development, personality, health psychology (stress, coping, and well-being), psychological disorders and its treatments, and social psychology. Each chapter features thoughtful questions that encourage students to become informed consumers of psychology and apply the concepts they have learned in their lives. The authors provide examples and scenarios of everyday living that students can easily relate to, making it easy for them to understand the key concepts. The book is very engaging and is hard to put down. Already on its 9th edition, Essentials of Understanding Psychology has been revised based on the reviews of students and professors who have used it. One such change includes the use of visual mastery; some of the topics that were too complicated to discuss using text were made more visual. A special module on cultural diversity is provided for instructors.
