Publisher's Summary

A hands-on approach to exploring the human mind

Too often, textbooks turn the noteworthy theories, principles, and experiments of psychology into tedious discourse that even Freud would want to repress. Psych 101 cuts out the boring details and statistics and instead gives you a lesson in psychology that keeps you engaged - and your synapses firing.

From personality quizzes and the Rorschach blot test to B. F. Skinner and the stages of development, this primer for human behavior is packed with hundreds of entertaining psychology basics and quizzes you can't get anywhere else.

So whether you're looking to unravel the intricacies of the mind or just want to find out what makes your friends tick, Psych 101 has all the answers - even the ones you didn't know you were looking for.

Perfect for Future Psychologist & Psychometrician

I love this book!
I sleep and wake up listening to it
I get to study and recall everything I learned in college that will help me in the Board Exam.
Hopefully this will help me pass its very specific.
I wish tho that there were parts of the brain chapter and neurotransmitters since I'm not so good at that but anyway this book is great for psych students.

Brilliant book! Highly recommended :)

Brilliant book! very well organized and written in a smooth language, excellent doorstep for readers who have no previous exposure to psychology. Lots of matters make sense now starting from the history of prominent scholars, theories, past experiments and different psychological conditions . Thank you:)

it's a boring dictionary of psych related notions

nothing keeps the chapters together. each chapter is an encyclopedic entry for a notion related to psychology. you might as well search on Wikipedia for entries like " Anton Pavlov" or "stress disorder" and read that, instead of this 'book'

Hated it.

There IS NO story at all. This book is simply a history of how psychology evolved. I'm listening to nothing but a boring lecture that gives me definitions of words I don't care about and on it goes. I tried 6 times to get ahead in the book and turned it off each time in frustration as I learned almost nothing of value about today's world. PLUS, I had to listen to how we torment animals in all our research along the way to gather that info and that bothered me a great deal as well.
I love the study of human behavior, but this simply took a lot of my time for nothing in return is what I found. I would not recommend this book at all.

A very clear narrator and good storytelling for those who want to learn some key basics of psychological studies!

It doesn’t substitute doing a PhD in psychology if you want to become a psychologist but it does give me a sense of what the field is, from both the historical and thematic perspectives.

Interesting book!

Wow, my first Audible and I am satisfied to have chosen this book. Interesting book with brief key concepts on psychology. The narrator's voice was calming. Thank you everyone who were involved to make this knowledge available. What a great time that we live in!
