Overview

"Is psychology no more than common sense dressed up in jargon? Is it a science? And what did Freud really say? This is highly readable book considers some of the most interesting and controversial questions in the ever-popular discipline of psychology. Among the topics discussed are: What is psychotherapy and does it actually work? What do intelligence tests measure? Are men and women really psychologically different? Does nature or nurture really determine our personality?" The book provides a taster of what psychology is and what psychologists do. It aims to dispel myths and correct misconceptions, to entertain and to educate. This is not the dry textbook for the huge class of Introductory Psychology students. It is an ideal book for the interested lay person, the person considering whether to study psychology and those on short courses hoping to get a better picture of the discipline as a whole.
