Psychology of reading - 2nd edition

£24.99

Product description

 This large paperback book is in very good condition, apart from limited highlighting.  The cover is in excellent condition, with minimal wear.  Internally a yellow highlighter has been used, but this is limited to use on 8 pages in chapter 12 "Reading Disorders", 4 pages in chapter 7 "Inner Speech", some entries in the References section and highlighting the date of publication on the back of the title page.  Apart from these markings, the pages are in very good condition - clean and tight.

Reading is a highly complex skill that is prerequisite to success in many societies in which a great deal of information is communicated in written form. Since the 1970s, much has been learned about the reading process from research by cognitive psychologists. This book summarizes that important work and puts it into a coherent framework.

The book's central theme is how readers go about extracting information from the printed page and comprehending the text. Like its predecessor, this thoroughly updated 2nd Edition encompasses all aspects of the psychology of reading with chapters on writing systems, word recognition, the work of the eyes during reading, inner speech, sentence processing, discourse processing, learning to read, dyslexia, individual differences and speed reading.

Psychology of Reading, 2nd Edition, is essential reading for undergraduates, graduates, and researchers in cognitive psychology and could be used as a core textbook on courses on the psychology of reading and related topics. In addition, the clear writing style makes the book accessible to people without a background in psychology but who have a personal or professional interest in the process of reading.
