Sandra One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was the first movie that I ever seen that had me totally interested in how the mind works in psychological ways. Now I am taking my Masters of Forensic Psychology and loving it. I hope others who read psychological thrillers learn the love of helping others too. Dave Pezler is my recent addition to learning about the abuse of children in America. Dave is an inspiration to many of us who have gone through even the slighetest bit of what he did with his mother, that good things do happen to good people. My heart goes out to all the wonderful things Dave has done for others.

Talyn You should add "The Anatomy of Evil" by Michael H. Stone.. I did not see it on this list.. It's a very, very good book dissecting the psychopaths and the insane with 22 levels of "evil", from justified to totally blows-you-out-of-the-water-evil. It also touches on subjects such as the brain and chemicals affecting a person's behavior; abuse at home; environmental influences, etc. Basically it boils down to.. what is "evil"?


message 4: by Chris (new)

Chris Another book that should be added to the list is
Anatomy of a Secret Life: The Psychology of Living a Lie


message 3: by Killthepopular (new)

Killthepopular Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud: Relapse and the Symptoms of Sobriety
Only 14 ratings and yet 35 people voted for it? Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I smell spam.


message 2: by Tim (new)

Tim Mcleod The collection should be retitled "Books an undergraduate who took intro psych would consider important". This list is loaded with self-help, fiction, and memoir. A fraction of this is substantive or fit for graduate study. Just call it something else.

I agree with Tim - also psychology does not equal clinical psychology and so far, all I'm seeing is one area of psychology, the title is far too general IMO.
