From the Back Cover
Does House use humor to mask his true self?
At what point does an indulgence become an addiction?
Can anything make Taub happy?
How does Cameron′s past affect all of her future relationships?
Why does everyone lie?
Gregory House is a medical genius and a Sherlock Holmesian figure, but he′s also a self–destructive, deeply troubled misanthrope. What is it about this angry, arrogant curmudgeon that is so appealing to us? House and Psychology offers a fascinating psychological profile of Gregory House and his team at Princeton–Plainsboro Hospital. Is House a hero or an antihero? Does Wilson need House′s emotional support? Are all of the relationships on this show doomed to fail? The answers to these questions allow us to appreciate our favorite characters more deeply but also serve as a crystal–clear window into our own behavior. Why do we deceive people? How do we define addiction? Can we help others without expecting anything in return? Combining psychological theory with the latest in psychological research, House and Psychology lets us understand what makes this show tick.

My library didn't stock it, and I have 2 or 3 friends who will want to borrow it . Nice to be able to read about the character, now the series has finished.
All House fans will enjoy this book. Clearly the authors of the various articles are avid fans of the TV series. It is so much more fun reading something written by enthusiasts. That is not to say that the articles are not critical at times. There is plenty of food for thought.
House is a phenomenon. It was the most-watched TV show on the planet. The viewing figures in the USA and UK were not always spectacular, but elsewhere on the planet, it enjoyed and enjoys astonishingly broad appeal and cult status.
We House fans have been spoiled by the number of high quality books about the series. This is another one. Enjoy and message me if you would like to exchange ideas and/or memories about the people and the events at PPTH!
It sounds a bit more of university level as it discusses life based questions, topics, ideas, etc. and then puts examples from House, sounds a bit immature style.
Though really interesting theories, but the style how authors just simply put examples from House - is too simple and straight forward.
