Social psychology studies one of civilization's most central concerns: human relationships. With its friendly style and engaging, accessible language, Knowing People selects some of the best research in social psychology and shows how it can improve people's lives. By understanding people's beliefs, attitudes, and desires, individuals can fashion relationships that benefit all concerned, rather than one person or group at the expense of another.
