Se me ha quedado un regusto amargo.
Con lo mucho que me gustó el de Genética... Obviamente, aunque pertenezcan a la misma colección de libros, los autores no son los mismos, y por tanto el enfoque que aportan unos u otros pueden ser muy dispares. Aunque esta conclusión la saco habiéndome leído sólo dos de ellos. El próximo que será será el de Literatura o de Política.

As a complete novice to the entire subject of psychology, I found the book fascinating. For other readers, more experienced in the subject, seemed to be disappointed, I thought the book was full of new and interesting ideas. I picked up the book because of a new interest in psychology and was not disappointed for it.

What I liked: This book really seems to be for beginners since the author didn't go very deeply into each subject, but simply introduced psychology ideas and a few main subcatergorie...more

Since the books of the '50 ideas' series is very dependent upon the reader and context, I should probably start by stating where I come from: I'm eightteen, and beginning psychology classes in school in two months' time. I ordered this book from Amazon half a year ago to get a basic idea of what I'm going to have to know by then, and only just got around to reading it.

I've given the book three stars because I feel very much the same way about the concept and the execution: both have their strong...more

Due to the fact this book was read on separated periods of time this review is poor-bound unfortunately. I gave this book 3 stars while I find 4 is also eligible to it. I have had many questions that concerns my\our behaviors as humans. Especially in terms of belief '' Why do we believe ? ''. And of course this books wasn't dedicated to that division. In fact it has mentioned '' relaying on religion'' quiet marginally. However it did fulfill my wonders. Its provided informations and sources are...more

A disappointing book but a lot of this is down to the format and to weak editing rather than the quality of the material. Breaking down latest thinking and history into just 50 four-page gobbets of information just does not work. It is not only that there is no cohesion to the book but some subjects are presented like technical treatises while others are trite run-throughs of complex matters that are far better covered by a quick search through Wikipedia.

The editing, at times, is a disgrace. The...more
Well, it's okay. If you've already got a basic grasp on psychology/if you've taken a psychology in your time, you're not going to learn anything new. I wouldn't say it's 'stuff you really need to know', because if you're going to encounter any of the ideas presented in this book regularly, you're likely to have already known them. Furthermore, I think a lot of these ideas aren't things you 'really need to know', but more, 'things that you might encounter some point in your life, and you won't li...more
Very interesting book if you are really into the workings of the mind. Good for beginners who are just getting into the subject of psychology as it covers a wide range of topics.
If you have a solid backing in Psychology, you probably won't get a whole lot from this book. It's more or less a series of tasters rather than giving a really depth layups of any of the 50 topics. Hard to do in only 200 or so pages and when almost all of the topics have books written about. However, if you are someone who has never picked up a psych book or walked into a class but have an interest, this book might be useful. Rather than getting weighed down on one specific topic.
Well, I'm cheating on this one, because by "read" I mean partially read and decided it wasn't well written enough to continue with. Not even good enough to make it to the temporarily abandoned shelf where books go who seem great but I just don't have the time/energy to do them justice, or can't be bothered to finish.

The idea of this is great but the writing is cumbersome.

(15 Jun 2011) A good start. My sister-in-law (In Turkish I would call her my "yenge" or "görümce") challenged me to read 20 books, and when we were in Izmir we found a bookstore with books in English and Turkish. This looked like a keeper, a good refresher for me with my study interests.

this book will provide the reader with an introduction to some of the basic concepts in the study of psychology .
it is more of a textbook , so it can be a little dry ; not much anecdotal content .

شاهدت هذا الكتاب في مكتبة جرير شهر رمضان الماضي ولم أتحمس ولكن اليوم لم أجد ما يشدني الا هو لاسيما ولي علاقة قديمة بعلم النفس وكتاب آخر عن قوة الارادة محشو بالقصص التي لا أحبها
-la psicología no es lo mío.
-no puedo leer libros en formato artículos autoconclusivos de 4 carillas que no tienen relación entre sí.
