Psychology: Frontiers and Applications is one of the most popular Introductory Psychology texts in Canada for a reason. The text strikes a balance between scientific integrity and student friendliness, introducing students to psychology as a science while highlighting its relevance to their lives and society. The Fourth Canadian Edition includes expanded content on thought, language, and intelligence; a brighter, more engaging design; and an improved conceptual framework with a clearer emphasis on the relations between biological, psychological, and environmental levels of analysis.

Connect - Your Study and Testing Program with e-book - is included with each new copy of the text. For more information, go to www.mcgrawhillconnect.ca
