With insightful commentaries on each classic, biographical information on the authors, plus a guide to further key titles, 50 PSYCHOLOGY CLASSICS provides a unique overview of this fascinating subject.

From the Inside Flap:

"A brilliant synthesis. With clarity and intelligence, the author makes complex ideas accessible and practical. I found myself thinking over and over again, Oh, that's what that guy meant."
Douglas Stone, Harvard Law School and co-author of Difficult Conversations

We would all like to know the secrets of human nature - who we are, how we think, and what we do. 50 PSYCHOLOGY CLASSICS explores writings from such iconic figures as Freud Adler, Jung, Skinner, James, Piaget, and Pavlov, and also highlights the work of contemporary psychologists such as Howard Gardner, Daniel Gilbert, and Martin Seligman. In addition, there are fascinating insights from writers and thinkers like Isabel Briggs Myers, Eric Hoffer, and William Styron.

The focus is on 'psychology for non psychologists', books that everyone can read and be enlightened by, or that were expressly written for a general audience. We are in a new golden age of popular psychology writing, and 50 PSYCHOLOGY CLASSICS reveals a diversity of ideas:

What happiness really is
How intuition can save your life
The secrets to better communication and influencing skills
The science behind successful relationships
Why smart people get swept up in mass movements

Also exploring some of psychology's most famous experiments and research, such as Stanley Milgram's chilling demonstrations of the human willingness to obey authority, Harry Harlow's work with baby monkeys revealing the importance of physical contact to mental health, and Alfred Kinsey's pot-stirring revelations about people's real sex lives, 50 PSYCHOLOGY CLASSICS highlights the often surprising scientific work that has changed what we believe about ourselves and what makes people tick.
