The year is 2033. The world has been reduced to rubble. Humanity is nearly extinct and the half-destroyed cities have become uninhabitable through radiation. Beyond their boundaries, they say, lie endless burned-out deserts and the remains of splintered forests. Survivors still remember the past greatness of humankind, but the last remains of civilisation have already become a distant memory. Man has handed over stewardship of the earth to new life-forms. A few score thousand survivors live on, not knowing whether they are the only ones left on Earth....

Concept is interesting, but story is hard to get through - drags and is a bit tedious.

  • Psychology in Plain English

Psychology in Plain English is an accessible, somewhat folksy book describing principles of psychology and how they relate to real life. Dr. Richards uses anecdotes, personal examples, wicked humor, and explanations honed through more than 30 years and more than 700 psychology classes to covers some of his most popular classroom topics. How do we learn fears and phobias, and how can they be removed? Why is punishment not the best learning technique, or even second best? How does psychology differ from common sense?

Good if that's what you're looking for. But was misleading. Not about psychology but more about the study of psychology.
