Influence: Science and Practice is an examination of the psychology of compliance (i.e. uncovering which factors cause a person to say “yes” to another's request).

 

Written in a narrative style combined with scholarly research, Cialdini combines evidence from experimental work with the techniques and strategies he gathered while working as a salesperson, fundraiser, advertiser, and in other positions inside organizations that commonly use compliance tactics to get us to say “yes.” Widely used in classes, as well as sold to people operating successfully in the business world, the eagerly awaited revision of Influence reminds the reader of the power of persuasion.

 

Cialdini organizes compliance techniques into six categories based on psychological principles that direct human behavior: reciprocation, consistency, social proof, liking, authority, and scarcity.

For one-quarter/semester courses that focus on the basics in statistics or combine statistics with research methods.

 

The fifth edition of Statistics for the Behavioral and Social Sciences builds off an already well-established approach - emphasizing the intuitive, deemphasizing the mathematical, and explaining everything in direct, simple language - but also goes beyond these principles to further student understanding. By using definitional formulas to emphasize the concepts of statistics, rather than rote memorization, students work problems in a way that keeps them constantly aware of the underlying logic of what they are doing.

Straightforward and student friendly, James S. Nairne's PSYCHOLOGY, Fifth Edition, uses a proven problem-solving approach to help you discover how to apply psychology to your everyday life. A firm believer that you must understand what a psychological process is for before you can hope to understand how it works, Dr. Nairne presents topics from a "functional" perspective. With this signature approach, chapters begin by focusing on the "why" behind psychological processes before introducing what they are and how they work. Our brains are filled with psychological "tools" that control everything from emotion to memory, and each helps us adapt and solve important everyday problems. Nairne describes these tools in detail, shows you how they're used, and focuses on specific situations in which they are applied. Emphasizing critical thinking and active learning, PSYCHOLOGY, Fifth Edition, provides current, comprehensive, and practical coverage that you can immediately apply to your life.
