5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating read and a great idea for a book, 29 Sep 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Classic Case Studies in Psychology (Hodder Arnold Publication) (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.
