This is easily one of the most important, insightful and stimulating books I've ever read in Psychology - indeed, it should be compulsory reading for all social scientists! Nikolas Rose is an absolute master at using Foucauldian ideas to illuminate what it means to be human in late modernity. Unputdownable.

This is a good book but it is very detailed and as an undergraduate psychology student I did not find it particularily easy to understand. There was also a lot of repetition and so I feel this book could have been shortened which would make it a more interesting and more accessible read for students.
