Format: Paperback
I've read this book from cover to cover and I guarantee you it is a fascinating (and at times almost unbelievable) read. I knew some of the studies covered but not in this detail. It's a great idea for a book. The more you find out about these stories the more you appreciate how amazing human behaviour is. I loved the story of railway worker Phineas Gage who had a 6ft metal pole blown through his head and lived to tell the tale travelling around carrying the pole for the rest of his life (he was even buried with it!) and the shocking story of David Reimer who due to botched surgery as a child had his penis cut off and was brought up as a girl before once again adopting a male role in his teens. Each chapter in the book deals with a different case study and they are all very interesting. The psychological importance and relevance of each case is also dealt with. I'd certainly recommend this book - you'll enjoy many of the stories and learn more about psychology and human behaviour in an entertaining way.

Amazing life stories - they're worth reading whether or not you've got an interest in the psychology behind each story. It's really easy to read and I read the book really quickly because each chapter was so gripping. You'll bore your friends by repeating the incredible stories to them - sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. I think there's a potential film in each one of the chapters. Read it!

This book was extremely informative... I expected it would be like a text book that would put me to sleep but it isn't! It describes the first case of OCD, MPD and a whole bunch of other acronyms. Anyone with an interest in Psychology should read this book!

Format: Paperback
This book was first brought to my attention when Geoff (the author, and the head of Psychology at my old Sixth Form) carried out a General Studies lecture using some of the stories. If any other students here were forced to take GS they know how tedious and awful the lectures can be. So to have a lecture regarding a man getting a pole embedded in their head was welcomed very quickly, especially to a group of 17 year olds.
I then went to the library and loaned the book, and it is filled with stories that will make you squirm a little bit inside! Very interesting and a good read.
