An engaging approach that makes motivation science accessible and relevant
Revel Motivation Science presents classic and contemporary approaches to the study of motivation in a way that is fun, dynamic, and relevant to students’ lives. Combining insights from psychology, education, health, business, and sports, authors Edward and Melissa Burkley emphasize the influences of cognitive, emotional, social, and biological processes upon motivation. Using simple, engaging language, real-world examples, and compelling pedagogical features, the text helps students see how they can apply concepts from the field to achieve their own life goals.

NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.

Motivation Science is also available via Revel™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience. You can also purchase a loose-leaf print reference to complement Revel Motivation Science. This is optional.
