Randolph A. Smith's book The Psychologist as Detective: An Introduction to Conducting Research in Psychology, 5th Edition¸ ISBN 9780205687404 tackles the methods of psychological research and portrays such with passion and thoroughness. This text prides itself on being student-driven including authentic student research within each chapter. An informal manner of speaking and writing is utilized to further appeal to student audiences. Smith's angle of comparing psychological testing to a detective case is quite intriguing with references to problems being presented, clues discovered, the evaluation of evidence, and finally a summary of the case (research) is compiled for presentation. The hope of taking this point of view is to stimulate and attract students' interest in psychology research. This one-of-a-kind text seeks to accomplish its goals by employing several didactic components to meet the needs of all learners. The 'psychologist as detective' theme runs smoothly from start to finish of this book to accommodate a seamless delivery and maintain focus. Interactive, lively writing elements are incorporated while presenting information to grasp user appeal. Special sections entitled 'The Psychological Detective Feature' pose questions or situations that challenge students to participate in critical thinking activities as well as facilitate beneficial class discussions. Smith's book The Psychologist as Detective: An Introduction to Conducting Research in Psychology, 5th Edition, includes many other effective organizational features that guide students through a myriad of information. Important definitions can be found in the margin of the text pointing out key terms to students. Each chapter also includes numerous review summaries throughout to enable students to understand smaller bits of information. Lastly, study breaks throughout challenge students to assess their understanding of material as well as serve as preparatory tools for quizzes and exams.
