Synopsis & Book Info:
The Rough Guide to Psychology looks at the question psychologists have been asking for hundreds of years - why are we the way we are? It starts with you, your mind and brain, broadening out to look at your friends and other relationships, then finally on to crowds, mobs and religion. It explores the latest research relevant to crime, schooling, sport, politics, shopping and health, and what happens when the mind goes wrong, including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and more unusual conditions. The Rough Guide to Psychology includes fascinating information on real-life psychology, testing your memory, intelligence, personality and much more, with advice on everything from chat-up lines to developing your creativity.

I love the Rough Guide series.
This one is close to the top of the ones I have read too. I just really get a kick about books that help to understand our brains, and why we tick the way we do. This little gem of a book touches on all facets of psychology, and really helps you understand more about yourself and others too.
I will admit, since reading this book, I am trying to eliminate swearing from my life completely. I try to curb my teenage son from using it, and the hubster as well.
I think a lot of people will find this book interesting, since we all can relate to it in one way or another.
Definitely one I think you should pick up and check out.
Recommend? YES, I think we should all have some understanding of Psychology.
