I have never been more excited to read about psychology in my life. This was truly a phen. book- I love the moral background and questions she leaves you with at the end of each chapter

I paid for this book. I regret that commitment. I'd thought that it would be an introduction to a topic i have an interest in but know little about and although there seem to be facts in there, its difficult to believe or get to grips with them because of the author's perplexingly random outbreaks of mills and boon-esque description and supposition. As a complete novice to psychology i'd appreciate an approach that wasn't overly empirical but this book was like a kid's ramblings. It seemed flimsily based on fact and was irritating. I suspect the author's guilty of bias, whimsy and sloppiness. The bad grammar and malapropisms throughout the book also suggest that her editors have indulged her narcissism. I am shocked at how strongly I feel about this book. It is truly awful and should not have been published.
