    Throughout the fifth edition of Psychology, Saundra K. Ciccarelli and J. Noland White employ a learner-centered approach that maximizes student engagement. The authors draw students into the discipline by showing how psychology relates to their own lives. Clear learning objectives, based on the recommended APA learning outcomes, guide students through the material. While adapting this edition for an Indian audience, undue emphasis on the Western cultural context has been removed and Indian cases and perspectives have been added, without disturbing the rigor and tenor of the original text.
