I thought that "Beyond Psychology," as hard as it was to read, was a great book. The beginning proves really difficult to get into, in the beginning the author really jumps right in, which is hard to understand because of his complex vocabulary and writing style. But once you can get past that the book proves really wonderful. If you enjoy psychology and the mysteries of life, you'll love this book.
