This book is excellent as a detailed introduction to psychology, and a must read for any person considering this field of study in the future, or for any person who has an interest in learning more about psychology.

I found that the book balanced basic and technical details well. One point that stuck with me was acknowledging that people who suffer from the blues for a few days often consider themselves depressed, and this is why there is an over diagnosis of depression.

It concerns me that it is legal to advertise anti-depressant medication on television in some countries around the world, e.g. "Are you tired, feeling anxious, and have trouble sleeping...then you need anti-depressant medication!" Over medicating is a big issue in today's society, and this book provides valuable insights into CBT and various forms of counselling. These two forms of treatment need to be prescribed more, as addressing the issues and source of problems is key to healing, and medication can help too, but the two together (therapy and medication) are a real solution to mental health issues.

You'll be glad that you read this book!

In The Complete Idiot's guide to Psychology is, of course, not just for idiots (I hope!). It is full of up to date information on the latest scientific psychological research and provides a quick view of the philosophies of contemporary and classical psychologists. It has good examples of psychology in everyday life. It is basically well written, and provides an elemental guide to some major psychological issues, such as nature vs. nurture and classical conditioning. It devotes a good amount of time to psychology in general and to mental and psychological issues, both of which I find fascinating and informative. It could go a little more in depth on some complex subjects, but overall I find that it is a good introductory guide to the fascinating field of psychology.

I am a senior psych major. I got this book to use as a very cursory overview of common topics in psychology. This is by no means a textbook. I find it helpful to read a very layman-oriented explanation of a particular topic before reading textbooks. It explains the more common topics in mainstream psychology in an easy to read manner. While definitely not a textbook it can be used as an intro into some topics casual students may find daunting.

This book was a gift for my daughter, she is enjoying it and learning from it. The book is in the simple Idiots format and other than being a little slow to start it does get interesting.
