4.0 out of 5 stars It's like the Cliff Notes of great Psychology writings! December 19, 2005
This book provides a fabulous overview of some of psychology's greatest works - chapter-long excerpts from renowned psychologists like James, Freud, Pinker, Chomsky and so many more. A great way to get a feel for some of these original works (without getting bogged down with pages and pages of over-technical psycho-babble). Great for the undergraduate psychology student.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book in a great trilogy ! April 22, 2008
After having read Gary Marcus' 'The Birth of the Mind' (dont miss it!) and having translated into italian his amazing 'Kluge: the Haphazard Construction of the Human Mind' (on print soon even in Italy) I can consider myself a real 'supporter' of this talented writer and insightful psychology professor. My opinion of him is so biased and I am so addicted to his work that I couldnt stop with those two and ordered 'The Norton Psychology Reader', which collects some of my favourite authors: Pinker, Sacks, Chomsky, Goleman, Csikszentmihalyi, LeDoux - and lots of other talented scientist Im now happily getting to know. All of them contribute to make this book a chest overflowing with modern psychology jewels, a companion on the way to the understanding of the mind, a compendium tracing a lay scientific way to enlightenment! Wanna make the trilogy complete? After 'The Birth of the Mind' and 'Kluge', get this book!

This book is great--I have to read certain selections for my Psych100 class and they are always interesting and exciting. It is great to have a compilation of literature from many famous psychologists. A must read for any psychology student or psych enthusiast!
