Overview

All in the Mind has been a successful but unusual textbook. It does not claim to be comprehensive: but it does cover important and currently controversial subjects critically and lucidly. Adrian Furnham's aim is to make the topic so interesting that the reader wants to read more, by providing the spark which leads to self-motivation. Much has happened in psychology and its related fields in the six years since the publication of the first edition, and these developments are reflected in the 30% of additional text which has been added, and in the updating of existing material. All in the Mind remains the most popular alternative text book at many universities because it is so different. It is also read by non students who want an accessible guide to the discipline of psychology.
