The Rough Guide to Psychology - Dr Christian Jarrett

  8. I think this is my first time participating in Friday 56. My quote is incorporated into my book review. It isn't exactly line 5 on page 56 because that line needed too much explaining to understand it. So I chose one a little lower down the page.

    I have several Rough Guides in my library and they are good resources for specialized information.

  9. I used to love my psychology classes in college. Sounds like this book might have promise.
