#96. The Rough Guide to Psychology - Dr. Christian Jarrett


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.

My Opinion:
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.


4.5/5


Recommend? YES, I think we should all have some understanding of Psychology.

The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
