Good overview

Good synopsis of important psychology works of the 20 and 21 centuries to date, although I found some of the writer information slightly dated. It is a good mix of more serious psychology research and pop psychology works. It wet my interest in books I have not read yet. Unfortunately Audible does not stock most of those.
The narrator was very good, although I had to slow him down to follow.
This book is probably better in hard copy for reference purposes.
