Overview

Now well-established as an introduction to psychology, Psychology and You has been revised and expanded to reflect current changes and developments in the subject.

Psychology and You introduces psychology by starting from issues which are of interest to all, rather than covering any particular syllabus. It covers such topics as body language, emotions, on being male or female, growing up, how we learn, styles of loving, uses and abuses of psychological tests, the differences between humans and other animals.

In a readable and informal style, this book presents a thorough overview of modern psychology's approaches to human behavior and emotions, with examples drawn from real-life experiences. Since psychology is first and foremost a practical subject, the authors have included 21 exercises to challenge the reader to think further on topics discussed. Illustrated throughout, the book provides a lively introduction to psychology, for students and non-students alike.
