Editorial Reviews


Knowing People is highly readable. The book would be appropriate for an introductory social psychology class, an introductory sociology class that emphasizes social psychology or a class for non-majors. (Teaching Sociology)

This engaging, easy to read, book will be great supplement to an introduction to social psychology or introduction to sociology course. What makes this book unique is the way Lovaglia overlays personal examples from his own life onto rich descriptions of social scientific research. The result is a text that is a highly effective in its ability to teach fundamental concepts in social psychology and also one that illustrates the usefulness of social psychology to students' everyday lives. (Shelley Correll)
