Overview

There are numerous textbooks that explain the theories and principles of psychology, but many are too dry or academic. Idiot's Guides: Psychology, 5th Edition breaks down the complexity of psychology and helps readers understand the how and why of the human mind, the causes of things like mental illness, how we react to situations, and how we become who we are. The book steers clear of self-help and pop psychology and focuses on more of an academic approach. Key concepts are broken down into plain and simple language, and supplemented with insightful illustrations that help explain each concept in a visual format that is fun and engaging. Readers start with the root of the human mind and move into the most popular theories of modern psychology, while exploring the lives and genius (and madness) behind the most famous pioneers in the field, such as Freud and Jung. From behaviorism to social psychology to cognitive psychology, readers will learn what makes all of us tick, and why we are who we are.
