Review:

At long last a chance for those outside the profession to discover that there is so much more to psychology than just Freud and Jung. 50 PSYCHOLOGY CLASSICS offers a unique opportunity to become acquainted with a dazzling array of the key works in psychological literature almost overnight. (Dr Raj Persaud, Gresham Professor for Public Understanding of Psychiatry)

This delightful book provides thoughtful and entertaining summaries of 50 of the most influential books in psychology. It's a 'must read' for students contemplating a career in psychology. (VS Ramachandran, Director, Center for Brain and Cognition, University of California, San Diego)

A brilliant synthesis. The author makes complex ideas accessible and practical, without dumbing down the material. I found myself over and over thinking, 'Oh, that's what that guy meant. (Douglas Stone, lecturer on law at Harvard Law School and co-author of Difficult Conversations)

Butler-Bowdon writes with infectious enthusiasm. He is a true scholar of this type of literature. (USA Today)

From the Publisher:

contact to mental health and Alfred Kinsey's pot-stirring revelations about
people's real sex lives.

has changed what we believe about our-
selves and what makes people tick.

the authors plus a guide to further key titles,50 Psychology
