A few examples of the subjects:
-chapter 1 explains how changing your behaviour can change your attitude. This chapter explaines that when your behaviour and your believes don't match, your brain finds a solution, namely: changing your attitude.
-chapter 2 clarifies that it's normal for people to be inconsistent
-chapter 5 makes clear how tabloids and reality shows can make us feel better about ourselves
-chapter 8 shows us how we use double-standards when we judge ourselves relative to others
-chapter 9 explains how why airtravel brings out weird and rude behaviour.
There are 10 chapters in total in this book, so there are more subjects in this book than the ones I mentioned above. There is a extensive list of references at the end of the book. This book explains some human behaviour in a understandable and lively way. This book is very short though, and I would have liked it to be much longer. This book is a easy and fun read that will entertain and teach you about human behaviour at the same time. Recommended for everyone.
~The Rebecca Review
For the following the reasons it appealed to me.
1. It's short and to the pont.
2. Psychology is not my field of expertise and I did not need the I depth discussion.
3. If I needed the I depth discussion, I could reference the material provided in line.
4. While it's an introduction it allowed me to specifically focus on behaviors I find most interesting without reading pages upon pages of information.
I find myself similar to the young man in the section regarding the mock trial who provided inconsistent actions regarding his attentiveness. I'm always looking for the unexpected reactions, for people to not count anyone out unless they prove (by action) themselves unable to function. A new day and age with new generations.
My only suggestion would be to possibly link your references to other Kindle books(hopefully yours) and the specific section if a reader wanted more I depth information. Still 5 stars though.
