This is a great book for people who havent pursued psychological studies but are keen to know some basic terminologies and concepts related to psychology for their own curiosity or to have a meaningful and engaging conversation with people
It is another good book in the series a graphic guide. The book goes on to explain what psychology is and how it all began etc. And that is probably why i guess i didn't enjoy the start of the book so much. But except the first and the last(gets a bit boring again) 15 pages the rest of the book is pretty good and is definitely worth a read if you have got the time and even the slightest of interest in psychology.
A quick summary of psychological ideas, and is a breeze to read through. However, the title is a bit misleading. It is far from being a graphic guide. It is a book with a few cartoon strips, which were almost never useful for understanding concepts provided. They were mostly redundant, and most times not even funny. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a quick intro to psychology.
The book truly stick to the title - this is just an introduction and nothing more. This would act as a good guide for the begginers in psychology and as a quick reference for others. It touches a broad variety of concepts but nothing in deep.
Brief on the chapters with relatively easy language. Concise on the various theories and perspectives of psychology. Pictographic: it’s the best part of the book. Has a picture for every paragraph (almost). Also recommended for the realisation of how it’s a topic of daily life.
I am new to the concept of psychology and I have learned very much from this book. The possibilities of applying whatever I have learned are many. Thanks Nigel for such a descriptive and on topic book.
I would recommend this book to aspiring psychologists to understand the many fields and theories that fall under psychology. It is a very surface read though. Based on your interest, you will have to delve into other books for a deeper understanding of that specific interest.
