Psychology For Dummies is a fun, user-friendly guide to the basics of human behavior and mental processes. In plain English—and using lots of everyday examples—psychologist Dr. Adam Cash cuts through the jargon to explain what psychology is all about and what it tells you about why you do the things you do.

With this book as your guide, you'll: gain profound insights into human nature; understand yourself better; make sense of individual and group behaviors; explore different approaches in psychology; recognize problems in yourself and others; make informed choices when seeking psychological counseling; and much more.

  • Shows you how understanding human psychology can help you make better decisions, avoid things that cause stress, manage your time to a greater degree, and set goals
  • Helps you make informed choices when seeking psychological counseling
  • Serves as an invaluable supplement to classroom learning

From Freud to forensics, anorexia to xenophobia, Psychology For Dummies takes you on a fascinating journey of self discovery.

I ordered it to kind of "Dumb down" my school work, It was extremely helpful. I tell everyone about the book and how easily it coincides with my school work (Psych Class- Theories of Personality-). Awesome, I will be ordering soon.

I thought I knew about almost all psychology but then I bought this and I learn more and this book would be good for a class of psychology

It's a very good book but I almost think its too much for someone who is just slightly interested in psychology and not enough for say a student of psychology. I bought this book because I wanted to see if psychology was the right field for me to study in school and it really help in that capacity.

It's a really great book, although I'm still in the process of reading it! Anyway, all psychology fans out there you should definately check this one out, especially if you don't like reading all those complicated psychology books.
