Warum gibt es so oft Missverständnisse selbst zwischen guten Freunden? Warum wissen die wenigsten Ehemänner, was ihre Ehefrauen wollen – und umgekehrt? Warum scheitern Verhandlungen, obwohl sich alle Beteiligten optimal vorbereitet haben? Nicholas Epley hat sich intensiv mit den Fallstricken der menschlichen Kommunikation auseinandergesetzt. Wir alle glauben, uns selbst gut zu kennen, so Epley – und irren uns meist gewaltig. Der nächste fatale Fehler: Wir schließen von uns selbst auf andere. Wir müssen lernen, unsere Empathie zu nutzen. Wie das funktioniert, wie wir eigene und fremde Motive und Bedürfnisse ergründen können, erläutert der Autor anhand von aktuellen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen. Eine Gebrauchsanleitung für erfolgreiches Mind Reading in jeder Lebenslage – beruflich wie privat.
Wenn David auf Goliath trifft, hat er zwei Möglichkeiten: Spielt er nach dessen Regeln, wird er verlieren. Ist er bereit, die Regeln der Macht zu brechen, zwingt er den Riesen damit in die Knie. Malcolm Gladwell ist davon überzeugt: Underdogs sind Gewinner! In genialen Episoden von listigen Kriegsherren, halbstarken Basketballteams und inspirierten Softwareentwicklern zeigt der Kultautor, dass Triumph keine Frage der Größe, sondern der inneren Haltung ist. Gladwells hintersinniges Plädoyer für das Große im Kleinen ist zugleich ein Appell zum kreativen Ungehorsam. Nach der Lektüre dieses verblüffenden Buchs ist kein Riese mehr vor Ihnen sicher.
In this volume a group of distinguished psychologists considers what the cross-cultural approach has to offer the discipline of social psychology. It begins with an assessment of the cross-cultural position, its faults and some requirements for broader acceptance. In the second section, cross-culturalists present the case for the cross-cultural approach in a broad, theoretical and synoptic presentation. The next section consists of integrated, empirical summaries of cross-cultural research in selected areas by practitioners in the vanguard of work in that area. Finally, some of the social psychologists indicate how their original thinking has changed in the light of the presentations of the cross-culturalists.

PSYCHOLOGY: FOUNDATIONS AND FRONTIERS offers a fresh and updated approach that combines the appealing content, visuals, and effective features of Douglas Bernstein's two previous introductory psychology textbooks. Focusing on active learning, the text presents important findings from established and current research, emphasizes the many ways psychological theory and research results are being applied to benefit human welfare, and integrates extensive pedagogy. The integrated pedagogical system helps students master the material by supporting the elements of the PQ4R (Preview, Question, Read, Recite, Review, and Reflect) study system. Try This activities illustrate psychological principles or phenomena by encouraging students to learn by doing. Other features designed to promote efficient learning include Linkages diagrams and sections that show how topics in psychology are interrelated, Thinking Critically sections that apply a five-question approach to various topics, and Focus on Research sections that help students think objectively about research questions and results. To offer flexibility in a single-term course, the book includes eighteen chapters that may be assigned in whatever order meets instructors' needs.

Schließlich hat Laura nur noch ein Ziel: Sie will, dass Cherry aus ihrem Leben verschwindet – koste es, was es wolle. Aber Cherry lässt sich nicht so einfach vertreiben ...
When I began to study psychology a half century ago, it was defined as "the study of behavior and experience." By the time I completed my doctorate, shortly after the end of World War II, the last two words were fading rapidly. In one of my first graduate classes, a course in statistics, the professor announced on the first day, "Whatever exists, exists in some number." We dutifully wrote that into our notes and did not pause to recognize that thereby all that makes life meaningful was being consigned to oblivion. This bland restructuring-perhaps more accurately, destruction-of the world was typical of its time, 1940. The influence of a narrow scientistic attitude was already spreading throughout the learned disciplines. In the next two decades it would invade and tyrannize the "social sciences," education, and even philosophy. To be sure, quantification is a powerful tool, selectively employed, but too often it has been made into an executioner's axe to deny actuality to all that does not yield to its procrustean demands.
