Why are we the way we are? For over a hundred years psychologists have been conducting scientific experiments to find out. The Rough Guide to Psychology starts with you, your mind and brain, broadens out to your friends and other relationships, then onto crowds, mobs and religion. There are also sections on real-life psychology, showing how the latest research is relevant to crime, schooling, sport, politic, shopping and health. There are opportunities to test your own memory, intelligence, personality and much more, as well as advice on everything from chat-up lines to creativity. It also takes a fresh look at the classic cases and studies, from Phineas Gage to Milgram, and combines this with a cutting-edge round-up of the latest research. The last section deals with what happens when the mind goes wrong, covering depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, as well as more unusual conditions. Care is taken throughout to ensure conclusions are tied to the latest high quality psychological science.
