It is colour coded which acts as a fantastic mnemonic, the unique pictures and to the point writing style helps all the facts stick to your grey matter. You dont have to read it in order so you can pick it up for fun and learn little bits at your leisure. It is an amazing fun read

The Psychology Book aims to give a basic understanding of a wide variety of psychological theories and schools of thought, and does so admirably. The book is divided into seven broadly chronological sections (Philosophical Roots, Behaviourism, Psychotherapy, Cognitive Psychology, Social Psychology, Developmental Philosophy and The Psychology of Difference)and looks at the main participants in these areas and the theories and ideas they put forward. Each subject gets at least a page, and some more important contributors (Piaget, Bandura, Freud) get many more. The book is written in a style that engages the reader, and presents the ideas in an understandable way, which is great for those who are interested in psychology generally, or studying subjects that might contain elements of psychology such as teaching. This book does have a wide scope, and more advanced readers in this area might find this book somewhat limiting, but as a guide to a wide range of concepts and the people who produced them, it does an good job.

Having already purchased The Philosophy Book of the same range, I thought this item would complement my understanding of a more complex subject matter. However, I was disappointed to find that the information included was incredibly selective and biased in favour of certain psychological positions. This made it different to distinguish fact from the opinion of the writer and resulted in this being an unhelpful source to cite reliable information from.

Great first guide book for me, having not long started a BSc (Hons) Psychology at Open University. Very clearly written and illustrated appropriately, not too much scientific jargon wgich is what I was worried about! Very informative and goes hand in hand with my Level One course material, detailing the prominent psychological figures necessary. Would recommend to anybody beginning their studies in Psychology.

Purchased for daughters boyfriend as he is studying Philosophy & Ethics and is interested in compatible subjects. I had a quick read through before wrapping it up and enjoyed the interesting issues. It is a form of bitesize notes on the different topics within Psychology so not meant as a study tool but a great bedtime reader and coffee table type book. Perhaps this book could lead to reading further books for more serious study or further reading if wanted. There is a Philosophy book too which I think I would prefer as I enjoy that subject more than psychology as feel is less of a theory and research testing subject. This opinion is only based on reading for enjoyment and not a study material or serious reading.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 31 March 2012
This is an exciting, intellectually stimulating and comprehensive introduction to psychology.
After an excellent brief introduction to the history of psychology there are chapters on Philosophical Roots, Behaviourism, Psychotherapy, Cognitive Psychology, Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology & Psychology of Difference.
The book concludes with a Directory giving brief outlines of lesser-known psychologists and a Glossary of psychological terms.
'The Psychology Book' is a beautifully illustrated, jargon-free guide to a fascinating subject which should appeal to the general reader as well as students of psychology.
