"This book is designed for students of education and teachers who have no previous knowledge of psychology. The earlier chapters cover the ground usually treated in textbooks of general psychology but with the emphasis on the application of psychological principles to education.

The book is written throughout from the functional point of view though not leaning to behaviorism in its extreme form"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
