50 great myths of popular psychology : shattering widespread misconceptions about human behavior by Scott O Lilienfeld( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a society in which psychological knowledge is shaped as much, if not more, by supermarket tabloids, talk shows, and self-proclaimed "self-help gurus" as it is by the latest scientific advances, here is a book that helps students and the public distinguish fact from fiction in the world of psychology. The authors use popular myths as a vehicle for distinguishing science from pseudoscience.
