Focusing on research methodology and scientific thinking, Jonathon Brown' s "Social Psychology" is a new text that helps students understand the experimental nature of Social Psychology. The text' s systematic and rigorous approach is presented in an engaging writing style. Through coverage of many prominent classic and contemporary studies, Brown shows how Social Psychology principles are not always common sense and are often counter-intuitive.
