Just started this one, and loving it as well. It is a clever way to introduce the complexity of psychology to an average person like me. Interesting and very easy to follow, and so far i love finding out all the tricky things our brain does to interpret the world around us. I also have the companion book "This book has feelings" which I will tackle next.

This book had some v tasty morsels in it. Interesting food for thought. One of the more interesting ones is the finding that conservative people tend to respond to 'disgust' more than non-conservative people (as determined by brain scans). Also had practical exercises on how you can implant false memories in your friends!

Each double-page is a new topic, so it's an easy pick up, put down book. The 2nd half of the book was a lot more wishy-washy for me.

the case studies they present are interesting, but this book is not for someone who knows nothing of psychology. I believe the authors intended this for people who at least had a basic background with terminology.

A book dedicated to highlight the flaws of the mind, from the social animal to the perception of the senses. The book also has mini bios of remarkable neuroscientists, psychiatrists and psychologists.

A very basic overview of the field of psychology. Too brief, not enough meat.
