Editorial Reviews

Author G. Neil Martin explains the ins and outs of modern psychology by doing away with common myths and stereotypes. This beginner's guide draws from the classic studies of authors like Freud and Jeung to more recent discoveries, in order to provide a comprehensive examination of the subject. The author addresses questions like, "Why do we become aggressive?" and "Are there basic emotions? And if so, what are they?" And his relevant and accessible examples make it easy for the listener to remain engaged. Another winning fact is the audiobook's narration; Andrea Powell's performance is straightforward and confident. The audience will feel smarter just from listening!

Publisher's Summary

Can personality and intelligence be measured? How do babies learn to perceive and think? What happens when we sleep? Attempting to answer these important questions and more, psychology - the scientific study of human and nonhuman behaviour - has never been more popular. From TV experts to the amateur musings of your best friend, the language of psychology has permeated all aspects of everyday life. Here, the author proves that modern psychology concerns far more than the everyday stereotypes of Freud, Jung, and "common sense" advice to provide a vibrant and witty examination of what it is to be human.

A tough read

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Not a book for a casual reader the book is very heavy for a introduction book and tuff to absorb reeds like it written for academics.

Would you be willing to try another book from G. Neil Martin? Why or why not?

No

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I found the narration to be mediocre

Was Psychology: Bolinda Beginner Guides worth the listening time?

Not for me.
