What is psychology? When did it begin? Where did it come from? How does psychology compare with related subjects such as psychiatry and psychotherapy? To what extent is it scientific? "Introducing Psychology" answers all these questions and more, explaining what the subject has been in the past and what it is now. The main "schools" of thought and the sections within psychology are described, including Introspection, Biopsychology, Psychoanalysis, Behaviourism, Comparative (Animal) Psychology, Cognitive Approaches (including the Gestalt movement), Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology and Humanism. The key figures covered include: Freud, Pavlov, Skinner, Bandura, Piaget, Bowlby, Maslow and Rogers, as well as many lesser-known but important psychologists.

Full of cartoons and illustrations: a complete introduction."Introducing Psychology" is now read and used on every continent on the planet! This International Bestseller is enjoyed by Psychology students of all ages and levels, as well as by other professionals and general readers. It provides a complete overview of Psychology, both theoretical and practical, including details of some of the most important research. In the UK it is recommended by Universities to Psychology undergraduates, as well as by Advanced level ("A-Level") and Basic level ("GCSE", "NVQ", etc.) examiners and assessors. As with the other carefully produced books in this extensive, lively illustrated series (by Icon-Penguin), "Introducing Psychology" attempts to provide thought-provoking insights for the benefit of both relative beginners AND those with previous knowledge of the subject. There is no other Psychology book like it on the international market! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    Let's be clear about one thing from the very start: these books - Icon in the UK and Totem in the USA - are not comic books, despite what some reviewers say. Certainly they have illustrations in them but they are a solid introduction to their subjects. Nigel Benson has written 3 books on psychology/psychiatry for Icon and in my opinion this is the best, and is certainly the one you should read first. I like 3 things about this book:1/ the way in which he gives you a clear explanation of the differences between psychiatry and psychology (you'd be surprised how many people don't realise they are different) and2/ the way in which he explains methodology clearly (how they go about collecting their data)and3/ the way in which everything is explained historically (in other words, in order, so you can see how the subject developed over the years).Is there anything I disliked? No. He even did all the drawings himself - which proves he loves his subject!If you're wondering whether to study psychology and aren't sure about it, read this book. By the time you've finished reading it, you will have a very clear idea of whether you want to take it further. That's what books like this are for, and Benson has succeeded.

    I just started studying psychology again after so long, and I happened to find this on Kindle Unlimited. I decided to just give it a read and see how it went, and if it would just help me recall previous knowledge I knew from psychology before. I was actually really shocked about how this book taught me a lot more than what I already knew. This covered a lot of things that were on my old curriculum that we barely looked at before, and I regret never reading something like this before when I was studying.With light humour, Nigel Benson makes psychology easy to understand, even for people who haven't studied it before. A definite book you should read if you're considered going into psychology, so you can have a look at the subject and what you're going to be studying.The information in this was absolutely wonderful and all perfectly accurate and proven to be true (or at least, from my previous studies. Some of this may have been proved wrong by now, I'm not sure without research).I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is interested by psychology. A quick, concise read, easy to understand, and the illustrations make it a little more fun to read about!

    This is a fun introduction to psychology and an interesting book if you know nothing about the subject. It's not very meaty and therefore ideal if you want to grasp some ideas quickly, before delving into the subject in a more detailed way.

    As a student with learning disabilities this is amazing and works with the way my brain works! It has helped me make sense of what seemed to be to me a foreign language and given me a foundation on which to build, wish there was more like this!!
