Many popular psychology books offer a host of interesting but useless tips you'll never actually use - this book, however, is full of tips you WILL find useful and use. My fear is that the title feels a little too pigeonholed and it might deter some potential customers. The book is full of practical and useful stuff that could be useful to anyone interested in the massive range of people skills covered.
In short it's a great book for parents, salespeople, managers, teachers, people looking for love, people dealing with difficult people, people going for interviews, people involved in advertising etc. This is a fantastic overview of Psychology that would be really useful for those thinking of studying it.
A Manifesto for Brilliant Schools and Brighter Futures.
Though, it is not a textbook it is easy and enjoyable to read for anyone that is just interested in learning more about the subject and for getting an insight into yourself and others. As in the subtitle! I really enjoyed the fact that every word is meaningful, there is no unnecessary waffling. It has lots of great references to further reading and useful websites to help you explore yourself further. I read it in one sitting and was sorry when it was over. I will definitely read it again for pleasure and personal growth.
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is an excellent addition to the series. I have recommended it to psychologists and non psychologists alike, and all have raved about it. Easy to understand, interesting, thought provoking and well laid out. A must for anyone with an interest in psychology at any level, whether someone about to embark on the A level, a professional or just about anyone with an interest in what makes us tick.
Excellent read, thorough, well written, easily digestible, logical flow, I have bought a copy for a friend of mine who has just started her psychology studies, and she is finding it very valuable. A really useful and engaging text - would highly recommend this for revision for Paper 1 of the MRCPsych examination. It gives an accessible yet comprehensive overview of the work of influential psychologists and famous psychological experiments, a knowledge of which is essential for paper 1 and previously very difficult to come by in one text alone!
One person found this helpful. Great read,. Format: Paperback. In my view, you should definitely read this if you're thinking of studying psychology, or are in the early stages of learning the subject! It gives an effective overview of the field of psychology in layman's terms. It is carefully thought through and very clear.
Books for training, self-development, language, and inspirational ideas
I think it should be available to all psychology students at the start of their studies. One of key strengths is how it explains the history of psychology - it brings the strands together nicely. A great balance between science and clear explanation. Overall I found it very insightful, and shows how each main area of psychological research contributes to building up the whole picture of human psychology. It explains clearly why psychologists have bothered to research certain areas of human experience, and puts everything into context. My skills brought him real results money.
Maybe someone with a copywriting degree could do the same, but maybe not. Whether or not you go to college, and whether or not you want to work for yourself or for a company, build skills and experience in your desired field. And if you want to be even smarter, network heavily. These things matter; they bring results. You can get straight As in school, but nobody, no matter how successful, gets straight As in life.
No, in life, you tend to get As by getting Fs first. Lots and lots of Fs. Stephen King probably still has his huge stack of publisher rejection slips. Stephen King, one of the most successful authors in history, got dozens and dozens of Fs before he got his first real life A. School trains us to have the mindset that a given amount of effort will always bring a measurable, predictable, and successful result. Colonel Sanders had 1, rejections he received for his chicken recipe before the first yes. And many of his rejections were humiliating, like an F- or something.
Successful blogger, author, and entrepreneur James Altucher said that about 17 out of his 20 businesses have failed. But the ones that did well were worth millions of dollars. To put in a measured amount of work, compile an impressive resume, say all of the right things in the interview, and be turned down is a shock after predictable results for 20 years.
If not biased, maybe the interviewer liked the early interviewees so much that later candidates never stood a chance, as was shown to be the case in a study covering 9, interviews. Or maybe they were simply misunderstood or underestimated. There will always be talented authors whose books remain unknown, superior athletes who never get a chance, and brilliant people who remain jobless. Meanwhile, some others who are in the limelight may not be deserving of it. Unlike test grades and GPAs, life is rarely fair.
