Discover what makes us tick

Understand Psychology is a jargon-free guide to the psychological processes that affect each and every one of us. It investigates how the human experience can be understood on numerous levels, exploring why we are the way we are, how we came to be this way, and what we might do to change seemingly fundamental traits. You will delve into a huge array of fascinating subjects, from how the individual connects with others and develops relationships to emotions, memory, sleep and intelligence.

This new edition has been fully updated to cover the latest developments and current debates; there are new and expanded sections on emotional intelligence, positive psychology, genetics and child development. You can also visit teachyourself.com for tests, extension articles and a vibrant community of like-minded learners. And if you don't have much time, don't worry--this book gives you one-, five-, and 10-minute bites of learning to get you started.
