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:

With a focus on psychology for non-psychologists,Tom
Butler-Bowdon, in his characteristic and successful style, looks at some of
the most intriguing questions
relating to what motivates us, what makes us feel and act in certain ways,
how our brains work, and how we create a sense of self. Deeper awareness in
these areas can
lead to self-knowledge, a better understanding of human nature, improved
relation- shi
ps and increased effectiveness.

50 Psychology Classics explores important contemporary writings such as
Gladwell's Blinkand Seligman's Authentic Happinessas well as wisdom from
iconic figures such as
Freud, Adler, Jung, Skinner, James, Piaget and Pavlov. In addition there
are fascinating insights from writers and thinkers such as Isabel Briggs
Myers, Eric Hoffer and
William Styron.

50 Psychology Classics examines:
What happiness really is
How intuition can save your life
The secrets of better communication and influencing skills
The science behind successful relationships
Why smart people get swept up in mass movements

Tom Butler-Bowdon explores some of psychology's most famous experiments and
research, such as Stanley Milgram's chilling demonstrations of human
willingness to obey authority,
Harry Harlow's work with baby monkeys revealing the importance of physical
contact to mental health and Alfred Kinsey's pot-stirring revelations about
people's real sex lives.

50 Psychology Classics highlights the often surprising scientific work that
has changed what we believe about our-
selves and what makes people tick.

With insightful commentaries on each classic, biographical information on
the authors plus a guide to further key titles,50 Psychology
Classicsprovides a unique overview of this fascinating sub- ject.
