The Psychologist’s Companion: A Guide to Professional Success for Students, Teachers, and Researchers

Robert J. Sternberg (Cornell University, New York), Karin Sternberg (Cornell University, New York)

The Psychologist’s Companion, 6th edition is written for students, young professionals, and even mid-career scholars. It is the most comprehensive guide available to both written and oral communication processes for academic psychologists. It covers the topics necessary for career success, including planning papers, writing papers, presenting data, evaluating one’s papers, writing grant proposals, giving talks, finding a book publisher, doing job interviews, and doing media interviews. Because the book is in its sixth edition, it is market tested for success in reaching and engaging its readers. Two special (new) pedagogical features are ‘Experience is the best teacher’, which draws on the authors' personal experiences to help make the book more personalized and exciting to readers, and ‘What’s wrong here’, which gives readers an opportunity for active learning while they read the book. The authors have written the book in a personable and often humorous style that will keep readers engaged.
