View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Is repressed memory as common as Freud thought, and is Freud still important today? What mistakes do humans routinely make in judging how likely events are to occur? Why do we find patterns in events even when they are unrelated? How do genetics make some people more prone to drug addiction, sensation seeking, or being highly sociable? Just how do you teach old dogs new tricks, and how does this same mechanism end up causing superstitious behavior? How are sexual identity, sexual orientation, and sex roles developed, and what did we learn about that process from the case of the opposite sex identical twins? How much control do we have over our happiness, and how can we make our lives happier? More Psychology in Plain English is the companion volume to Psychology in Plain English. Through anecdotes, personal examples, wicked humor, and explanations honed through more than 30 years and more than 700 psychology classes, Dr. Richards covers some of his most popular classroom topics.

From the Author:

If you enjoy "More Psychology in Plain English," you might enjoy "Psychology in Plain English." It's another 6 chapters of my favorite lecture topics, including what makes the science of psychology the science of psychology, how words are born, grow, and change, why punishment is probably not the best choice in altering human behavior, why some "mental problems" better described as "problems in living," whether it's really true we use only 10% of our brains, why averages are often the most misleading things on Earth, and why the English language is somewhat less useful than it could be. It's available in Kindle format from Amazon, as well as in paperback from Amazon as well as everywhere books are sold.

About the Author:

Dr. Dean Richards grew up on a dairy farm near Columbus Junction, Iowa, but he left cold, damp winters and hot, humid summers working among piles of manure behind forever after finishing graduate school. He now lives in Los Angeles with his lovely wife, Dr. Andrea Richards, enjoying periodic visits from their now grown children, generating almost all his own electricity from clean, silent solar panels, raising backyard tomatoes, working on the next volume of this series, and teaching psychology online as well as on site for a myriad of universities. If you enjoy this volume, you might want to check out the other volume in this series, Psychology in Plain English, available in paperback and for Kindle and Kindle reader apps. Dean enjoys hearing from readers, and appreciates online reviewers. If you'd like to contact him, you can do so at this email address: deanrichardsbooks@gmail.com

   
Rebecca Richards is a classically-trained artist majoring in illustration at Rhode Island School of Design. She proficient in oils, acrylics, pastels, and charcoal, and is also the author's only daughter.
