This review is from: The Psychology Book (Hardcover)
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.
