Contents: 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 suh 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 nonpsychologists', 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 yor life, the secrets to better communication and influencing skills, the science behind successful relationships and 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 on 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.
