From Publishers Weekly:

Human behavior provides an inexhaustible lode of material for psychologists, sociologists, pollsters, etc., whose research constitutes a veritable industry, observe Asbell ( When FDR Died ) and freelance writer Wynn in an intriguing and often amusing compendium of the experts' studies. In translating the professional jargon into intelligible prose (no small feat), the authors examine such topics as the outer self, the mind's secret life, relationships and crime, and include examples designed to illuminate the reader's own impulses and conception of self. Packed with such esoteric data as the ratio of crime to the full moon, and the fact that 21 of the first 23 astronauts were firstborn or only children, this book should be a rich source of cocktail hour trivia.

From School Library Journal:

YA-- Who is more anxious on a first date--the man or the woman? Does the distance at which you stand from a person with whom you are talking depend in part on your race? What is the relationship of your birth order in your family to your economic success? These and other fascinating questions are answered in this anecdotal survey of human behavior. Based on a wealth of psychological and sociological studies, all of which are listed in detail, this compendium of quirks is a useful tool for teaching psychology, as well as an eminently readable book. --Richard Lisker, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
