Introduced me to psychology,
This review is from: Why Don't Students Like School?: A Cognitive Scientist Answers Questions About How the Mind Works and What It Means for the Classroom (Paperback)Nice writing style. He first introduces each topic with some stories then conducts a literature review and applies the concepts to the stories. This makes for a very approachable book while maintaining academic integrity. He also puts a human readable reference section at the end of each topic so its easy to go deeper into the technical stuff if you feel compelled. Forget about teaching, this is a great introduction to psychology.
