Matlin’s Cognition demonstrates how cognitive processes are relevant to everyday, real-world experiences, and frequently examines how cognition can be applied to other disciplines such as clinical psychology, social psychology, consumer psychology, education, communication, business, medicine, and law. The 8th edition continues to relate cognitive topics to applications in everyday life. This edition is fully updated with research and additional anecdotes. It also includes more research on neuroscience.
Very interesting and the language is simple and easy to understand. The exercises in the chapters get the reader engaged in the material.
The real deal! You would be better off reading this book, written by a real scientist, instead of pseudo-scientific tripe written by the likes of Malcom Gladwell, Daniel Coyle and others.
