Format: Hardcover
I've been studying Psychology for 7 years and I was still drawn towards this book. Suitable for beginners to Psychology or for experts in their own field (by the time you start to specialize in an area you may have forgotten about some of the key thinkers and studies you learned about at the beginning- well I did anyway!)

I plan to buy the other books in the "30 second" series. It has a really aesthetic cover and the graphics inside are great- maybe I can finally get my partner interested in Psychology??

Would make a good gift.

I have always enjoyed psychology, and most of these theories are familiar, but without studying it formally I didn't have an opportunity to understand the roots of some theories I hear about. This book is so digestible, which is incredible considering its deep subject matter. A few theories just before dozing off is a lovely end to the day. In addition, the book is lovely, hard back, well illustrated and a joy to handle

Don't expect ant real depth but the blurb is correct when it states it will give an overview. Probably more use as a springboard for further study on the pieces that catch your eye

This book, whilst not a manuscript for the inner functions of the mind and the way we behave, introduces the armchair observer to the world of Psychology. If you have ever thought that you may be interested in reading further into the human mind then this book introduces you lightly to many ground-breaking theories.

Gives a very basic introduction to many different areas. A little dull and doesn't exactly get you hooked. If basic knowledge of subject is what you want then this is okay.

I have a much greater interest in philosophy than psychology but found this book an interesting, concise, summary of a variety of psychological theories

Excellent introduction to the subject and not complicated at all. Would recommend to anyone interested in psychology but not sure where to start.

I bought this book on the strength of other excellent reviews, and was not disappointed. It's very comprehensive, well set out, and tells you what you need to know about all the different theories and ideas in psychology to fill in the blanks in your knowledge and to enable you to talk knowledgeable to others. Recommended.
