About the Author

Charles G. Morris received his B.A. from Yale University (1962) and his M.A. (1964) and Ph.D. (1965) in psychology from the University of Illinois. He joined the University of Michigan in 1965 where he served until his retirement in 2002.

 

From 1972-1977 he served as Associate Dean in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. From 1980-1990, he served as Associate Chair of the Department of Psychology. Upon his retirement in 2002, he was appointed Emeritus Professor.

Morris has written more than two dozen books, numerous articles, and more than thirty papers and presentations.  His books include Psychology: An Introduction, Understanding Psychology, Basic Psychology, Psychology: Concepts and Applications, Psychology: The Core and Contemporary Psychology and Effective Behavior.

 

His early research centered on leadership, group interaction, and group problem solving. More recently, his publications and presentations have focused on various aspects of undergraduate education, on contemporary views of leadership, and on the "Big 5" personality traits.

I needed this book for my psychology class and it was way cheaper to rent here through amazon than in my school's bookstore. Not only that, it arrived on time and in great condition and it's exactly what I needed for my class.

Rented this book last semester after seeing it was MUCH cheaper than my schools bookstore. It came on time and in perfect condition and I was able to send it back without problems. Because of this experience using the amazon rental system, I rented another book for another course and hope to have the same experience with the book!

The book is pretty good, it starts off with pretty basic anatomy of the brain, eyes, ears, etc. Great way to start off in psych.
