“This is my favorite ebook on the topic (and I’m the son of a social psychology professor!). Aronson manages to speak to the layman (me) and the scholar (my father) with equal success. Though rooted in academia, The Social Animal 12e feels as modern and entertaining as anything by Malcolm Gladwell and Chuck Klosterman.” — Jesse Eisenberg, actor, and author

Expertly interlacing sage wisdom and contemporary science, hard-won facts and personal stories, The Social Animal 12th edition remains the single best ebook ever written about the field of social psychology.” — Daniel Gilbert, Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, Author of the international best-seller, Stumbling on Happiness
