I got this book a long time ago but have only recently picked it up and finished it. I have to say, this is a brilliant book for anyone who likes to understand psychology as it gives a great entry-point to the subject.
The book is divided into multiple sections each representing a unique part of psychology and those parts are explained in multiple chapter- each chapter focusing on a topic and the person who pioneered or worked behind the study.
The graphics and the font makes the book easier to grasp and hold our attention.
I totally recommend this book. Also the quality of the hardcover is great.
⭐For making each theory small and short to be understood and grasp well ..
⭐A non psychology student also can get this all well and get educated by many scientific terms and facts / concepts based on observation ,
Hence everything in psychology starts with the term observation ...
⭐ I never got bored reading this book quite interesting also the #gestalt therapy
Good embibement of self experiments of stress management and other ...
Overall satisfied customer :) // ...

Took a while but I'm glad I read it
The design and and layout of the reference and main pages are well planned allowing you to dip in and out of sections to follow a particular mode of interest or thought. They are great for adults and a for kids (10+) a good introduction to complicated areas of learning.
A few friends who are teachers use them for their classes.
If you're a beginner you'll benefit more (there's just a limit of how much depth you can go into if you spend one page on a concept, idea or person).
The book acts as a good reference point for people who are either interested in psychology, or are perhaps currently studying the subject at A-Level.
Each topic is outlined with a brief history, the key concepts and a biography of the relevant psychologist.
This is one of many books which are available to purchase in the series.
On a side note, I brought this for my kindle and for a more visual-led book with diagrams and decorative features, the formatting came out quite well.
I included pictures in my review as I don’t believe the above ones do the book justice :)
