What makes us tick? Why do we interact with each other as we do? Psychology is all about us and this "Teach Yourself Psychology" introduces the reader to this interesting subject.
I am Nicky Hayes - a psychologist who has had a varied career teaching, learning, researching and communicating psychology. I am now semi-retired and living in the far North of Scotland, but previously I lived in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, and before that the City of Leeds. I have written a variety of books about psychology, and edited or contributed to one or two more. My interests have spanned quite a range over the decades, and have changed as I have grown older; but include animal behaviour, the psychology of interactive design, small business management, social identification and social representations, and the application of psychology to effective everyday practice. On the recreational front, I particularly enjoy reading science fiction, some biographies, and of course the great Terry Pratchett. I don't have a facebook account, so if you find one on there pretending to be me it isn't. (although I think the imposter is gone, now).
Hope you enjoy the books.
